I hope that you are getting a little time off during this holiday season and have been able to spend it with loved ones. In just over 24hrs it will be 2012!
To some of you this isn't news, but my last day at Uncle Jack's Steakhouse was December 2nd. I met a lot of great people and was able to work on some very neat projects, but I am excited about what I will be doing next.
Starting on January 9th I will be launching a tour guide service specializing on visitors that speak French. Obviously I will be able to conduct tours in English, but I know that some people would rather learn about our great city in their native language. Get a sneak peek athttp://www.LeGuideFrancais.com.
On the side I will continue to teach and plan events. That means more time for Meetup and Ultimate!! Until this point I have taught one or two hospitality classes per semester at St. John's University, and this spring I will be teaching three or four. My goal is to become a full time professor.
While normally I have hosted a New Year's Eve event, this year I have focused on helping different venues promote theirs. If you or friends need a last minute ticket, take a look at the list below. In almost every case I can get you the ticket for at least $10 less than most websites.
If I don't speak to you in the next 48hrs, have a safe and Happy New Year!
