Find me a FAM tour and let me go on it. Working in tourism makes me a lucky fellow. I was one of the two people from the bureau to play host on a FAM tour through our area for travel writer Connie Reed, and we visited Asparagus Restaurant for lunch to refuel before heading out to last weekend's Pierogi Fest ® (like you really need to refuel before that fest).
