Taking in the SUNSet

What do you call 70 T-birds under one roof? Fun? And if they’re taking the US Airways Center by storm? A riot of fun!

The theme tonight was “The […]

By Sasha Wang Drinking Cheval Blanc 1961 with a paper cup was a fun scene in the movie “Sideways” but in the real world, you may think twice whether you should do it that way. My suggestion is always treating a beautiful Grand Cru wine like a lady, because she deserves it. As you may […]

Thundercrusin’: All aboard T-birds!

Thunderbird. Glendale. An island of cross-cultural business learning and fun. As with all good things though, this blissful existence ends after a year and a half or two, scattering everyone across the earth in the goal of making future global leaders. So when an opportunity comes along to bring that motley crew of people back […]
