Best kept secret in your city or area (hotel, venue, attraction, etc.)
Right now – Southern Junction. Awesome venue with a steakhouse and bar, live music and giant dance floor with old west ambiance, pool tables AND they have indoor grills that make the experience so much fun! It is truly a gem and won’t be a secret too long.
Favorite app, website or tech tool?
Smart Sheets – Best organizational software that I have found. It is user friendly and quick to learn, helps to get me and my team organized and provides reports. I use this for all my team projects and my own projects and timelines. I keep learning more tips and tricks and it just keeps getting better.
Desert island meal?
Tacos (breakfast, steak, fish, special ground beef, pork) – any way you make them or can top them!! Wow, I wish I was eating one right now.
