THE FANCY FOOD SHOW IN SAN FRANCISCO was bigger and better than ever at the Moscone Center. We were able to visit with many old friends and meet new ones as well. Here we were able to take a shot with Banzai Beverage and our old friend Mike Iwase, their National Sales Manager, inside the Japanese Pavilion Fancy Food Show is produced by Specialty Food Magazine and holds 2 shows yearly, the Summer Show in New York and Winter Show in San Francisco.

YARDBIRD-SOUTHERN TABLE & BAR, OPENS IN THE VENETIAN and LVFNB Pro was delighted to attend their media opening along with the new show FRANK The Man-The Music! A familiar face was Greg Thomas, Yardbird’s General Manager, who previously ran the Hard Rock Café on the Strip. Hope they do well in this everchanging business environment, but looks like they know what they are doing. We love the corporate name, RUNCHICKENRUN. COM, and operated by 50EGGSINC.COM.
