Hello Matt,
I would like to personally invite you to my site...YouGottaMenu.com!! Its a place where you can advertise your business, promote your special events & invite your customers there to blog about food related events. You customers will also be able to exchange recipes, join groups and interact with other food customers from around the world!! It's a different concept, but I think that's the draw. I am very excited about the future of this site. My company (Goins Enterprises) is currently launching a national campaign to promote this website. We feel that as we are promoting nationally, our members should promote to their own customers. I think that this site will give "Ellen Giminski" of Denver, the opportunity to experience your establishment & browse your menu and pictures. This will entice Mrs. Giminski to visit your establishment during her next trip.

We have also designated a place on the Home Page where we will doing "Close Ups" on Restaurants, Chefs & Special Events. Please stop by and take a look. Please contact me with any comments or constructive criticisms.

Hi Matt. I just happened to join this site today and see two things in common--- we're (a) neighbors and (b) Levy alums.

What do you do for Levy?

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.
