Breaking in the River House & a windy city warning

So, today we hosted our first CHEC luncheon at Lowndes Grove. CHEC, The Charleston Hoteliers Exchange Club, is a networking, non-profit for the hospitality industry. Everyone got a great tour of the newly opened River House. According to some inside sources, there were a number of "ooohs" and "aaahhs" overheard. Bear in mind, this part of the property had never been used as event space until now. Makes it even nicer that some of the hospitality industry's finest enjoyed themselves at our new digs. Thanks, y'all!

Windy City Warning: Executive Chef Nico Romo and Chef de Cuisine Charron Henry are currently in Chicago running amok, I mean attending the 2008 National Restaurant Association (& International Wine, Spirits and Beer Event). Some super cool chefs will be speaking and/or signing books. Personally, I'd be psyched to meet and talk to Charlie Ayers, Executive Chef for Google who is putting together a cafe concept of healthful, artisan-style, sustainable cuisine in a fast and affordable format. Oh, and get this: Presidential hopeful John McCain will also be speaking. Interesting, huh? Especially when you recall other comments I've made about the state of food in this country and other politicos. Anyway, if you should run into Nico or Charron, please say hey and have your bail money ready. Kidding, people!
