Blogging from the NRA Show

Hi fellow bloggers,



I just joined the FOHBOH community today at the NRA Show!

Tell us what about the trends you've seen on the floor, whom you think we should meet and what ideas you're taking back from the Show. Check us out at www.restaurant.org/blog.



And have fun… Continue

Please visit your Facebook page and learn from our comments there about the movement being started through local NRA chapters that gives these security forces a new mission that also supports our customers and workers.
