Urban Coop Company – My family eats about 40 eggs per week – seriously. So, being the math and finance dork that I am, I decided to create a spreadsheet to determine if it would be cheaper to own my own chickens. The answer is a resounding no. However, chickens are cool and having your own eggs is even cooler. If you are interested, this is the best chicken coop company I found.
NPR Podcast “How I built This” – This podcast is pure entrepreneurship at its best. I love these 20-40 minute episodes that tell the stories of the successes, failures, persistence, and attitudes needed to be a successful entrepreneur.
Calistoga – I recently had a speaking engagement for a group having a retreat in Calistoga. First, with all the rain this year, the hills are green and gorgeous. Second, I loved the little town of Calistoga. I stayed at the Mount View Hotel and Spa. It had a friendly staff and a great little bar and restaurant attached to it. The rooms have a vintage almost art-deco feel, and the keys are made out of real metal (with real locks). If you like wine, warmth, hot springs, and good food, Calistoga might be worth a look.
DW Bistro – DW Bistro was voted one of the Top 10 Burgers in Las Vegas by VegasEater.com. You can check out that article here. If you’re not in the mood for a burger, my go-to is their curry chicken bowl. Cool place, great food, awesome people. Enjoy!
