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. FROM SCOTT MCKAIN: Favorite restaurant in the city you live: As we split our time between Vegas and Indianapolis – and “best Vegas restaurant” is already one category – I’ll go with Sullivan’s in Indy. Sure, it’s easy to recommend St. Elmo’s as THE place to go in Indianapolis (and we love it there). Sullivan’s is a chain…however, the quality of the service is extraor... (more)

Most blog post are lies…except this one…

Did you know that Walmart donated $10,000 to a fund for Officer Darren Wilson from Ferguson, Missouri?  A post sent to me on Facebook says they did.

Everything of importance has value, and value has an associated cost. Trying to “have i... (more)

The Indiana Pacers, Lance Stephenson, and Taxi Terry…

It’s early on Saturday morning, and I am a bummed out sports fan. Last night, my favorite basketball team — the Indiana Pacers — where annihilated and eliminated by the Miami Heat.  If you follow sports at all, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the antics of Pacer Lance Stephenson, who — in an attempt to rattle […] ...

The Craving for Connectivity…

CRM on Ulitzer 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 coffee, right? Well, yes and no. I certainly have the coffee I purchased sitting next to me – however,... (more)
