For 25 years, The Five Friends have spent the bulk of their lives in hotels,
airports and restaurants. While they have much in common both personally and
professionally, one of the things they love most is great food and a great
dining experience. If you travel and find yourself stuck in a city without a
clue of where to get a great meal, perhaps this list of restaurants will
inspire you. And if you have a favorite The Five Friends should know about,
then let us know what it is so we can enjoy it too.

Some of the unhappiest people I know are those who bought into that whopper.
They lack priorities, choose uncomplimentary or conflicting values and wear
themselves out pursuing every activity.
Try eating all you want and keeping your weight at a healthy level. Try
traveling non-stop for business or pleasure and have meaningful relationships
at home. Try working long hours seven days a week and see how much leisure
Everything of importance has value, and value has an associated cost. Trying

It’s early on Saturday morning, and I am a bummed out sports fan. Last
night, my favorite basketball team — the Indiana Pacers — where

I was sitting in my local Starbucks, staring at my laptop wondering how to
begin this blog. Then, as I looked around me, I noticed my fellow customers
– students studying, Moms taking a little break, professionals such as
myself getting a little work done outside the office on a wireless high-speed
Internet connection and couples on their way to or from a day of golf – and
it struck me.
Right now, I am a customer at a coffee shop. So, I came here to get a cup of
