    Glad you had fun! I love the part of my job where I get to do big events like that… I only wish we did more than two a year!

    Oh and Rock Bottom Brewery is nothing short of awesomeness…

    Gosh, I’d love to be an event planner! Your job sounds pretty nice, too, though. Any job that includes travel doesn’t sound half bad! 😀

    Oh my goodness that looks like a full but fabulous day! I have the same issue as you, when I’m hungry I end-up eating thoughtlessly but I’m working on it :o)

    Great job organizing the cocktail hour! I wish my job description included fun tasks like that (and I love Rock Bottom as well).

    Trade shows are so much fun (yet so stressful at the same time). The booths I see are always amazing, and makes me sad that our booth is so dinky in comparison.

    I <3 Mad Greens. I ate there probably 3 or 4 times in the one week I was in Denver.

    on your feet for 9 hours straight and no shoes? haha, try 12.5 hours straight! But i never thought if it would be better without shoes. Sneakers!

    That’s my kinda size salad! I hate how restaurant salads are always so puny. Its like they don’t realize that I want to EAT, not just nibble on lettuce leaves and carrots.

      i think they’d expect that if you really want to EAT you wouldn’t order just a salad.

    I can’t tell you how many times a simple fruit salad has saved my life. Most of the time, it’s the only healthy food item available when traveling!

    If that Rock Bottom is the same chain that I’ve been to around here in in VA then I love it! So good!

    I was in Denver a few weeks ago and went to Mad Greens, too! Such a great place. I really liked their yogurt dressing — yum!!! Wish I had a Mad Greens in our town!

    I was just at the same convention center for the American Dietetic Association’s FNCE conference…it’s huge! I also loved Denver, but the altitude really impacted my running. I went to Mad Greens and the Rock Bottom Brewery, too!

    I definitely know what you mean about aching feet at conferences. After sitting at a desk for 8 hours everyday your feet just aren’t used to getting that much use, plus the concrete floors are brutal.

    Glad to hear your event went well. I wish I was at ISTE so I could have crashed your party. 🙂

    I love the thought of having fresh fruits and veggies as a focal point of the buffet. Not many people go that route and it is so refreshing when that is an option. The food looked great. 🙂

    Congrats on the successful planning/executing of the cocktail hour…..the eats look great!

    There is an AMAZING breakfast place in Denver called Snooze – It is a few blocks from the 16th Street Mall where it sounds like you’re staying, and typically has a long wait, but it was seriously soooooo delicious and I’d highly recommend squeezing in a visit if you have time during all of the conference craziness. Best wishes!

    Wow what a great spread you had at your mixer last night… I would have loved to have been there. I also know what you mean about eating terrible food when you are absolutely ravenously hungry. I never feel good after eating garbage because it is almost always the easiest thing to get your hands on and into your mouth.

    Looks like an awesome event!!! Great job. I, too, would LOVE to do that exclusively for my job 🙂 If anyone in the Boston area is hiring, I’m ready to find a new position…

    Hee hee.

    I love Rock Bottom Brewery. The BF and I go there a bunch. Good food and good beer for the BF.

    I’m also like 99% sure you are at the same conference as my coworker. She’s running the Kids.gov booth somewhere!

    Glad the cocktail hour went great! I’ll admit, that’s high on my list of dreams jobs as well (and yes, there are several dream jobs!)
