Product Showcase, Tower, and Dining Out

Today's agenda seems to have less activities than yesterday, but that's just because the activities lasted longer and were more self-guided activities; along with a little extra free time. The product showcase was a great opportunity to connect with food service companies, try free samples, collect freebies, network, read information pamphlets, and chat with others.

The "Dine Out" event was a super cool new event where approximately a dozen or so restaurants across the city participated. Each member had two certificates and could use one per restaurant to make a reservation there and dine; either choosing a few small items or one large, supplementing extra cash as required/desired. You could dine in big groups, small groups, all appetizers, apps and desserts, space your reservations close together or far apart, visit restaurants downtown or across the city.

For example, I chose one restaurant downtown and enjoyed a couple of small plates, then ninety minutes later I went across the city along the river front to another place and enjoyed a few desserts.
