The summit was at The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in sunny, and hot, Rancho Mirage, California. We left Scottsdale on Monday and spent the next three days there. It was great seeing everyone, and meeting people that I had only emailed with in the past.

Chipotle Mexican Grill: Gourmet Burritos and Tacos

Chipotle Mexican Grill: Gourmet Burritos and Tacos

Earlier this week I went to Chipotle Mexican Grill for lunch. I normally don’t eat like that, but I missed breakfast and I justified the gigantic burrito. My buddies Matt Rust and Benji Craig would be proud of me. I am pretty sure they spend more money at Chipotle than they do on their mortgages.

Drinks with Tom Turner: Master of Whisky

Do you like scotch? I do! I actually love scotch. I don’t care where it is from, either. Sure, I like the smoky and peaty stuff… But I also like the smooth and rich flavored stuff. Heck, I will drink a blend as far as I will drink a single malt. I can afford blended scotch, that’s for sure!

Grey Goose Vodka: The World’s Best Tasting Vodka

We drink a lot of vodka. Sheryl spent some time in Russia, and I spent a summer in Poland, and we became obsessed with this spirit. Whether we are taking shots, or mixing it in our favorite cocktail, there is always a bottle of vodka in our house.
