I’m extremely intrigued by the concept of not looking like a moron in a new city. This notion of knowing where to go and what to say, man…it’s radical, I know.
Thankfully we have this digital media thing to aide us in our travels.
Our pockets now house the maps that used to take us across the country with our family – little brother not included. Glowing denim replacing the crumpled and frayed edges of a map drowning in that familiar patina offered only from a sun-bleached yellow highlighter.
With this thought firmly planted in my mind, I’ve created the inaugural Advertising Week Social Club City Guide.
And why not, I figure.
We all travel in this industry; many of us share a similar taste quotient when it comes to dining out, things to do and the like. So I want to offer to you folks a useful piece in navigating a city that you may have a client in – but also the places that helped make yours truly.
Many of these places are, of course, bars – but don’t sleep on our “almost famous” sandwich shop with a day’s worth of calories built right in!
No matter the season, one of our teams will be playing. Hell, two of our three teams are even really, really good!
If you find yourself in the City of Bridges come the dog days of summer, the Pirates still play in the best ballpark in America. So call it two-thirds and a half.
With that last thought poorly expressed through fractions, check out the guide I’ve created for the AWSC community of The Steel City – where rust grows and rivers converge, that place that I call home.
