Your Meeting Matchmaker Fairy Godmother

PSL ASAP

On August 27, 2019, the news was filled with a lot of spicy big news! Starbucks, that place we all love, the king of coffee, the lord of lattes, was bringing back the PSL. Yes, on August 27th, pre-fall-before-autumn-Christmas-items-soon-to-follow, PSL has returned to its throne-worthy domain! We want to make fun of it because it[...]

Your Attendees Could Be in a Pickle(ball)

Pickleball is rising in popularity. It’s easy to learn, great for people of all ages and abilities and was created with fun in mind – making it the perfect activity for your attendees. While golf and other sports are still popular, not everyone is interested in such activities. Pickleball, on the other hand, is relatively[...]

Back to School

Backpacks are flying off the shelves, parents are both happy and sad that the kids are soon back to school, schedules are being updated, sleep schedules are being disrupted and soon yellow buses will take to the streets delivering students to class. It is back to school time! Whether you graduated not too long ago,[...]

Is Your Desk Picturesque?

Are you sitting down? At your desk? How’s the view? And, what does it say about you? Do you feel your desk represents you – this could be a scary question (piles of paper, coffee stains, etc) or one of pride (you actually know the color of the surface of your desk). I must admit[...]

There are valuable people in our worlds that deserve thanks, especially this time of year, when #thanks, #thanking, #thankful and #thanksgiving start to[...]

Shake Your BOO-ty

October 31 is looming. It’s the time of year our worlds go black – and orange. We willingly (some of you, anyway) go out of our way to experience scary places, haunted houses and slasher films. Some cities take Halloween a bit more serious than others. If you are willing to travel, here are some[...]

Time for the Large Popcorn Combo

We are into our summer months . . . and many of us are looking to get out of the heat. As much as we love spending time outdoors, sometimes it is simply not comfy and we need to be where there is A/C, popcorn, overly large sodas and MOVIES! That’s right, summer movie blockbusters[...]

Football Food

Super Bowl LII happens this Sunday, February 4th. We will watch Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots. Memorable commercials will ensue. Justin Timberlake will rock the half time show. And we will eat. We will eat our weight in chicken wings, nachos and more. Personally, I hope to be invited to a party where the[...]
