Hi All! If there was going to be a TEDx just about geography, or ideas related to geography, who do you think should be there and what should they talk about?

Sorry, just saw this! Forms of exploration; What a Geographic lens/perspective is; Some talks on different perspectives - e.g. indigenous perspectives on environment; Fieldtrips as CSI; Importance of Geography in a strong education system; Someone like Michael Palin talking about travel and cultures; +Daniel Raven-Ellison  on guerrilla geography; Helen Clark from UNDP on sustainable development projects. Wow this sounds like my dream conference/inspiration list!

Always get great service and food from The Misfit. The drinks are solid, and I almost always get the fried chicken sandwich. It's a little loud inside but, outside is always good for people watching.

1 star off for saying that they can seat large groups. The food is REALLY good, and the drinks are even more phenomenal. I'd stick to a date night or very small groups for drinks and dessert but, they really don't have seating for more than 3 or 4 max. I brought a group of 12 with a reservation (that they confirmed twice) and they only set the tables for 8 and that was even a big stretch.

Yah know, I always want to like this place because Spike is famous and all that but really, it's just ok. The burgers don't seem like anything I couldn't make and the buns are the same I buy at the store. The milkshakes are pretty good but, other than that, I'd probably get my burger fix elsewhere in DC.

1st tip: bring a high clearance vehicle. Went to Death Valley on a road trip with my girlfriend and thank goodness she had a Subaru outback because there is not a lot you can get to in this park with a regular car. Camping here was amazing, we stayed in Mesquite Springs and it was beautiful. If you do have the ability to do it, I highly recommend driving up to Aguereberry Point - it's very beautiful and there are lots of cool ghost town excursions along the way.

Stayed here for a work trip and may be biased because I haven't really been any place fancy (or Hawaii) before but, I thought this place was great. The staff is very nice and helpful. The infinity pool and grounds in general are just gorgeous, it's (kind of) walkable to great restaurants and the nice shopping center and the rooms are clean and well-appointed. I could have stayed an extra week for sure!

I've been here many, many times over the years and it never gets old. Well maintained and run, it's one of the few things to do when the weather isn't good enough to go to the park.

So. adorbs. 1 star off for lack of plugs and the staff not really knowing what's going on but, the food and drinks were INCREDIBLE. I wish it was just a little bit bigger with more comfy seating but, I spent about 7 hours there and did just fine so, can't complain that much. It's always busy and so unique, I'll definitely be back and bring friends.
