I haven't been to a conference in a while and I love the energy of conferences. They're good for me because I can be kindof mentally manic and there's so much going on. I couldn't go at that pace all the time, and haven't been to SXSW the last two years in part because I can't maintain my mania for all that long, but a day is perfect, and hopefully I will learn a lot. And eat yummy things.

If you can't make TECHmunch or just want to eat food and not talk about it, the same day is the Midtown Lunch 5-year Birthday Party! And it's at gorgeous City Winery. (I was profiled there back in 2008, when I worked in Midtown.) And you can win stuff like:

* An afternoon Sweetery Sweet Stop for you and up to 100 of your co-workers
* Dinner for 2 at Beacon
* $100 Gift Certificate to Bon Chon
* $75 worth of beer tickets for BeerParc
