It was a great jammin’ FFF!

 

 

On October 8th SoundWorks had their fun FFF, Free Food Friday! It’s a way of supporting the Houston creative community with Free Food Friday* networking lunches.  Menus for past events have included everything from good ole’ fashioned homemade hamburgers to Mexican, Spanish and Portuguese-inspired dishes.  This FFF was a Jamaican-themed menu and guests got to suggest their favorite Caribbean tune and sing a Bob Marley karaoke tune to win the new iPod nano. All of the lunches are prepared  by Houston chefs.  Dwight Cook of SoundWorks says, “It’s very cool to see graphic designers, writers and filmmakers make personal and business connections. It’s about making the Houston community smaller by getting to know each other.” Winner

Congrats to karaoke winner JaTerria Brooks who took home a new iPod nano for her rendition of Bob Marley’s “We Jammin.’”  Click here for a photo gallery of the event.

* FFF translates: free lunch, invitation only, creative community enjoying creative cuisine. We believe in building this Houston network of  professionals through the art of conversation, a shared perspective, a plate at a time.  FFF is by invitation only, so if you want to attend you might have to twist an arm at SoundWorks.

The next FFF is November 12th and details are to be announced soon.

Free Food Friday – October 8th @ SoundWorks

FFF

SoundWorks has fun ways of supporting the creative community with Free Food Friday* networking lunches.  Menus for past events have included everything from good ole’ fashioned homemade hamburgers to Mexican, Spanish and Portuguese-inspired dishes prepared by local chefs.  FFF is free lunch fun with Houston creative people.  Dwight Cook of SoundWorks says, “It’s very cool to see graphic designers, writers and filmmakers make personal and business connections. It’s about making the Houston community smaller by getting to know each other.”

The next FFF event on October 8th will feature a Jamaican-themed menu and guests get to suggest their favorite Caribbean tune for download.  Pirate punch for everyone!

Social Media Peer Pressure?

OK, in social media I see surveys all the time but now …. peer pressure.  Look at the two sites below:

 

Judge: Go Try It On

image Marry judgment with social media, Go provides social style feedback for anyone willing to upload a photo of themselves in an outfit, allowing other users to give a thumbs-up/-down and even post specific comments, though no matter what you say they’re probably going to try on, like, five more pairs of jeans and make you late anyways.

Make fun to your heart’s delight at GoTryItOn.com

 

Share: Eat.ly

image Does ‘data + pictures = positive change’? Eat.ly invites you to publicly track your meals with photos, comment on other users’ dining habits, and rate the health factor of your own feasting.  I give myself five stars!

Share your grub habits with Eat.ly

In the future, you’re fat.

belly-fat-main_full[1] We’ve seen the future, and you’re fat.

It’s not totally your fault, it’s our stupid calendar’s—the way we pack Halloween, Thanksgiving and the rest together in some sort of three-month gauntlet of flab.

But good news: we’ve found something that can help you stave off the jiggles.

fitbit Meet Fitbit, the pocket-size fitness monitor of the future, now available in the present.

Think of it as a Nintendo Wii for your pocket. Using the same motion sensor you’d find in a Wii remote, it records your every move, tracking every step you take, every move you make and every bond your break. (Kind of like Sting, but without the puffy shirts.) And if you happen to wander near your computer—where the dock station lives—boom, it uploads all your stats to your PC.

Once online, you’ll see how many calories you’ve burned and even how well you’re sleeping at night. You’ll want to start adding some basic details (number of martinis consumed last night, number of bourbons consumed this a.m.) and pick a reasonable goal—like losing five pounds in the next month, or burning 300 more calories per day.

Unfortunately, Fitbit cannot high-five you yet.

Fitbit, is available now .. I don’t sell them, but I could lose a couple of pounds.

What a great gimmick! Groupon hits Houston

Once in a while you find a great concept and think “I wish I had thought of that”! That’s how I felt when I found Groupon.com – what a great gimmick!  They started in Chicago and added new cities as they got advertisers. Now they are rolling out Houston, today was the first Houston Groupon offering. Groupon uses social networking to funnel people and use it to get the customer to drive more biz…great concept.

How Groupon Works

Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, they offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Houston: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of grouponcustomers, they offer great discounts. For the consumer it is “collective buying power”!

If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today’s deal) sign up by the end of the day, you’ll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires-today’s expires in six months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won’t be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!

It’s nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life’s cactus. Like some of the other local search sites they allow people to review food, entertainment and more.

Details

organic I just got today’s Groupon (Houston’s first Groupon) and it offers $35 worth of organic and all-natural food for 57% off at Ruggles Green, Houston’s first certified green restaurant. Ruggles Green, a casual bistro in the Upper Kirby area, serves organic and all-natural food made from quality ingredients. The menu is a collection of comfort food that keeps omnivores and carnivores content; try spicy fish tacos, warm goat cheese salad, 98% lean buffalo burger, tomato basil soup, or wood-fired pizzas (organic margherita pizza and more).

I don’t need to sell you on organic … it reduces the amount of pesticides and chemicals in the environment (and in your food), and it tastes better because organic fruits and vegetables have higher levels of antioxidants, lower average crop yields, and flavor crystals. If enough of us demand organic I think the premium price in the grocery will come down,
