Blogging from the NRA Show

Hi fellow bloggers,



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



We're blogging about all the interesting attendees and innovative exhibitors at the Show, as well as speakers, education sessions and the International Wine, Spirits and Beer Event.



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

Are you becoming weary of "tin cup approach" to helping veterans? Would you like to support them with jobs so they can be self-sustaining and proud? 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.
