I'm behind in my online correspondence. I was supposed to go to the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain opening also. But I moved to the Twin Cities this fall and won't be making it back for a while - although January would be the perfect month to escape. Enjoy, it will be lovely.
Your name sounded so familiar to me, and then it stuck me that we met briefly at the Tucson Food & Wine Festival a couple of years back. I believe Kimberly of MTCVB introduced us (would that be correct?).
I removed the comment, as I think I have attracted enough negative attention. I simply made the observation that in terms of writers I know, the women in my age group (20s-40s) are highly competitive while the older ones have treated me with kindness and respect. I suffered a lot at the hands of one particular writer whom I considered partnering with whom has poached a lot of jobs, ops and publicists from me, and whom I think was responsible for placing a horrible story on me with Gawker. I apologize for overgeneralizing, but this particular woman when at events and on press trips tends to draw attention a la rock star from younger, less experienced people while the older,more experienced people see right through her.
