Yesterday, I drove up to New Jersey to visit a customer, and a potential customer. The business end of the trip went very well, but I'm going to focus on the personal stuff.
When I travel, I try to find Hampton Inn's to stay at. That way, I get the Hilton points, and they are easy to find, and consistent. The Hampton that was nearest to where I was working was on Passaic Avenue, in Harrison, New Jersey. Nice hotel, and there was a bar in the lobby. I got to the room, and here's the view I had:
I don't fault Hilton... There's only so much you can do with a location just across the river from downtown Newark. :-)
I availed myself of the Manager's Happy Hour at the lobby bar. The view from the back patio of the hotel was lovely:
I then ordered some veal parmasean and ziti from Gina's Pizzaria, watched some 007, and went to bed.
The next post, will be about the geeky fun I had with my mobile comm unit, GPS receiver, and my laptop.
