Having Drinks On the 96th Floor Of The John Hancock Center

When I was in Chicago one of the things that I wanted to do was see the city from one of the tallest skyscrapers there. The tallest building in the city is the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears tower), but all I read was it was a tourist trap. Next is the Trump International and the Aon Center, both of which do not have observation decks. That brings us to the John Hancock Center, which is where I ended up.

Seeing How A Graphics Card Is Made In Dongguan, China

So I had told you guys that I was in Hong Kong for the first time. Going to Hong Kong was actually part of a trip put on by Zotac. We work with Zotac at ThinkComputers and they make a variety of computer products, but are mainly known for graphics cards. They were celebrating their 10th Anniversary and while most of the events were in Hong Kong, they set up a factory tour for us to see how their products are actually made.

My First Time In Hong Kong!

At the end of October I had the pleasure of going to Hong Kong. While this might not be a big deal to some, many people rarely get to leave the states so I was excited when I found out I would be going on the trip. The reason I was there was that Zotac, a company who works with ThinkComputers was celebrating their 10th Anniversary and they invited select US media over to celebrate and do a factory tour.

The Summersville Trip

Ok! Ok! I know I need to wrap up these posts I’ve been meaning to write since summer! Let’s go back to the middle of August when a group of us went down to Summersville, West Virginia! This was sort of a last minute trip I went on with my Gabe, Jess, and Mel. It was actually my first time ever going to Summersville and man did we have a blast, even though we were only there for a day and a half! Check out the video I made which kind of showcases what were were up to.

My First Time Visiting Napa

More recapping of my summer! Back at the end of June I went on a really cool business trip out to Napa, California. Now for me Napa is not exactly a place a would normally go, I am not really into wine at all, but a company we work with over at ThinkComputers was having an event so I decided to go out. Since this was a tech event I got to hang out with my friend Michael, who was there representing MegaTechNews. Napa is of course known for wine, it is about an hour north of San Francisco.

A Trip Back To Beijing Noodle No. 9

When I’m in Vegas I typically try restaurants that I haven’t been to before, but I always seem to make a trip back to Beijing Noodle No. 9 at Caesars. If you didn’t know I am a huge fan of Asian food and on top of that they actually hand-pull their noodles there. That is something you don’t typically see, unless you are in New York or L.A. So Beijing Noodle No. 9 is usually on the list of restaurants I want to eat at each year.
