Ed Sawicki spent a moment with us up by the registration desk (turns out he’s at least a third degree black belt in TaeKwonDo which he does with his daughters who are also 2nd and 3rd degree black belts) and shared a local’s perspective on some great restaurants in the area for those who want to venture out, or perhaps have alternate plans for the night of the cruise.
All of those suggested are located downtown in the “Fountain Square” area and about 10 minutes from the hotel. To get there, drive South on Vine Street. (Names are links to google maps, pictures are menus).
Via Vitae — Italian
Rock Bottom Café – Brewery
Nada – upscale Mexican (vegetarian friendly, I think)
21c Café – rooftop restaurant, variety of cuisine
Crave – next to Red’s stadium
Thanks to our opening keynote for starting our conference out well.
