for my 50 traveling company members…any suggestions?

busily preparing for a stint of one week stops on our tour. Tempe is the first
place we get to hit right after the new year and can I just say how excited I

out your window and seeing the glorious mountains, prickly cacti, and tumbleweed
rolling across the roads? I tell you, ASU kiddies, Tempe is going to be my
