A quick blog entry here…hope everyone is looking forward to a fun fall weekend ahead. We had an exceptionally busy week meeting with many new clients and prospects of Linx- even got to visit a lovely and very impressive prospective client at her Silicon Valley home to ensure 100% privacy. Lots of matchmaking this week and meeting with VIPs to discuss their projects in the works. Tonight a stellar Linx client has invited my husband, sister, and even pooch Marshall (woof woof!) over for a cooking lesson dinner party. I am so excited to see him in his element and on top of that getting to splurge on his yummy homemade pastas (yes ladies…he told me he is making the pasta from scratch, I know!) and will show us how to make 4 rustic Italian pasta sauces. He keeps saying everything is very easy to make. Tonight I need to witness this firsthand and see if these insanely good sauces are THAT easy or easy for him but not for us!
Last night I checked out The Rosewood Sand Hill Hotel to survey the scene with a girlfriend after a visit to the Hockney opening at the De Young. It was a fun girls night and good quality time together. The infamous Thursday night scene was definitely different. Ladies, it was literally ALL men. I saw this on my satellite radio one day and had to laugh. Although I find that word derogatory used in context of the ever-popular Rosewood nights, I couldn’t help but smile.
The bar was packed with dudes having drinks and they sort of seemed very happy just talking to one another. The deck was very crowded as well with around a 10 to 1 ratio of men to women. I asked the bartender “what was up” and he said he has witnessed a shift in the Thursday night scene. When I looked around more, it really looked like a lot of very cute, preppy MBA and law school Stanford boys in their nicely pressed chinos, dress shirts, and Ferragamos. Sort of like an East Coast group of guys in the mid 20’s to mid 40’s age range. A pic I snapped from last night- told you…ALL guys!
One former lovely client who is getting married soon sent me a couple of nice quotes from her Linx experience. “There are myriad dating books, advice columns and best friends out there, all offering “helpful” suggestions. However, the best advice I ever received – and still hold dear to my heart – was from Amy. It was her words that lead me to the man I am going to marry and I pass on her wisdom to others regularly. Like all the other ways in which we are leading the nation in innovation, Amy’s services are unsurpassed. Hold her advice dear to your heart. I certainly do; her insight lead me to the man I am going to marry.”
Have a great weekend all!
