From the Editor

If you're a regular reader of our eNewsletter, you may have noticed there's considerable variation in the length of the issues from month to month. That has a lot to do with how much time I spend flying, as usually our eNewsletters are written at about 30,000 feet altitude. This last month we have been extremely busy with five different leisure projects, but my travels have been limited to short flights and car travel. So this eNewsletter is on the shorter side, but certainly no less significant in its content. Our articles include why LBEs should ban the words "snack bar" and "concession stand" from their vocabularies and get serious about their food and beverage offering with eatertainment, discussion of whether IALEI is truly serving the interests of its members, and coverage on the Foundations Entertainment University.
