Welcome to 2011 Floored! readers My fellow contributing bloggers and I have so much in store for the new year. From the 2011 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show Hot Chef Challenge to the International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event Star of the Bar competition, to NRA Show 2011 and IWSB news, information and updates here on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. There is something new every week here at Floored!
It has become something of a tradition I contribute a New Year's story to Floored! Chicago has so much to offer and it is always a pleasure to share some of the adventures with you!
This year I was lucky enough to ring in 2011 at the incomparable Peninsula Hotel in Chicago. It is not only the ideal location to ring in the New Year, but Chicago's premiere hotel to enjoy year-round, including during the National Restaurant Association's NRA Show and IWSB.
