I’ll be spending Pesach this year with Smilow Family Tours at the AAA 4-Diamond Bonaventure Resort in Fort Lauderdale!
OK, as a hopeless foodie who has never been to a Pesach program before I’ll admit to being most excited about the promised 5 star culinary experience and how that will be accomplished with a completely non-gebroktz and cholov yisroel menu. I’ve heard from past attendees that dishes like pancakes, waffles, pizza, pasta, and baked goods taste like the real deal. The only question is how many times I’ll make a mezonos instead of a shehakol
But I’m also excited about the opportunity I’ll have there to talk about credit cards, miles, points, and travel in different format than I have until now. I’ve run 8 sold out seminars which have been attended by thousands of people and have loved getting to meet so many of my readers face-to-face to talk about our addictive hobby. I’ve gotten lots of positive feedback about the seminars but the most common complaint from folks is that I cover so many topics in such a short period of time that it gets overwhelming.
Unfortunately I don’t normally have a good solution for that. There’s just so much information to cover in less than 3 hours. I take lots of questions after each seminar from the audience (and the Q&A formats have been much improved of late) but it’s still a lot to digest.
With a captive Pesach audience I’ll be able to break down the topics into separate sessions, allowing more time to cover each section, and allowing for questions and answers after each session.
Also at the program will be world renown lecturers like Charlie Harary, R. Zecharia Wallerstein, R. Menachem Nissel (all the way from Israel), R. Daniel Mechanic, and Dr. David Lieberman.
Entertainers will include Avrohom Fried, Sruli Wulliger, The Yedidim Choir, ventriloquist Chuck Field, and from LA, comedian Avi Lieberman. A Teen Program/Camp will be run by the NCSY’s energetic R. Avrohom Walkin.
Will I see you at the program? Hit the comments!
