Hi Kristen!
I work with ChartHouse Learning and we have a unique opportunity for everyone in the Vegas area. We are the folks that created the FISH! Philosophy based on the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle and we are premiering FISH! The Musical in Las Vegas on September 25th. The show is free and positioned as entertainment with a message for businesses and organizations. Write back and let me know if you're interested and we'll get you set up with a seat or two. If you know anything about FISH! you know it will be FUN!
Take Care.

Just checked the comment about bottles. I will call you to do the quotes and all. I am looking for plastic/eco/green bottles. The short 5oz versions with med holes on top for shakers. Very cool that you do that. Trying to stay eco-friendly/plastic.

Hi there. I checked out your website. Do you do food packaging, or just the design of it? Co-packaging?

I am starting up a spice/sauce company and sourcing for suppliers. Saw you and wanting to know. PS: my 3.5 yo daughter loves PINK!

Are you an Ohio native?

Hi Kristin, you may be interested in a spot on our State of Nevada Page, or any other of the 50 States' Pages. We are getting ready to add Food and Paper goods pages to our website as soon as we get our Restaurant Equipment pages off the ground (probably Late this week). Our web targets the Restaurant and FoodService Industry as a whole, with special emphasis on pre-opening research and resources. All of our current clients are in the Atlanta, Ga area and you can see examples of the pages that we create for them on our Website Sponsors Page. Since we are on the verge of branching out, our prices are very reasonable for the amount of work that we do. Our clients in Atlanta have had very good success. At the very least, I think that we should exchange links to increase our page ranking in the search engines.

Thanks Again

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
