Send your clients the gifts they crave with The Cravory, a cookie subscription service that ships freshly baked cookies across the country. “The Cravory really pushes the envelope in terms of flavors,” says Dawn Triemstra Seymour, the company’s publicist. “We’ve done cookies based on cocktails and classic desserts, and during San Diego Beer Week we featured six beer-flavored cookies.” Groups like Bizo-LinkedIn and New Way Pro have taken advantage of The Cravory’s corporate subscriptions, which include custom branding and flavor options for each monthly order. For those who’d like to enjoy the cookies in person, The Cravory just opened its first brick-and-mortar shop in Point Loma, San Diego.

 

Perhaps your attendees have hopped on those electric bikes and e-scooters that are scattered all over metropolitan areas throughout California. That’s old news, no question. Yet it’s a sure bet they’ve never been on a Vintage Electric Cruz Bike, because only 250 of them ever have been made. Mad Dogs & Englishmen Bike Shop in Carmel has a fleet of these smile generators, as well as a fleet of knowledgeable guides to lead scenic group tours. 

 

 

California is one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, but a startling number of residents aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, one in eight Californians struggles with hunger. The situation is especially startling for children; one in five is food insecure.

Hunger is not a supply problem, it’s a logistics challenge. And the meetings and events industry is full of logistics-minded people who are in a position to chip away at it.

 

There’s gold—and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed meeting center—in them thar hills.
