and it had great views of the city from the top floor:
The Association of Professional Genealogists Professional Management Conference started Friday afternoon. I met many fellow genealogists, and discovered that professional genealogists are not competitive with each other; rather they are very collaborative, sharing tips, ideas, and experiences. I learned a great deal about running a genealogy business, specializing, creating interesting end products, and other educational opportunities.
When I travel, food is one of the important parts of the trip. I was given some good tips on eating in Salt Lake City. Unfortunately, because of the slippery sidewalks due to the snowy weather and time constraints, I was not able to follow up on all the tips. However, I was able to try what is supposed to be the best Mexican food at Red Iguana by eating at A Taste of Red Iguana. Even though this is in the food court, City Creek Mall is beautiful, with a creek filled with fish running through the center, and the food was very good!
Crown Burger, reputed to be the best burgers in Salt Lake City. I did not have burgers, but the gyros were excellent and the blackberry milkshake was a decadent indulgence. And it was a quick walk, as I could see the flashing neon light from the hotel room window.
I was disappointed not to have time to try Greek Souvlaki, but they have a location at the airport, and it was way too early on my way home for lemon chicken soup, but I did purchase a couple pieces of baklava, and they were fantastic.
Thanks for sharing Salt Lake City! We love it! ;-)ReplyDelete
Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.
May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
