Dot Com Pho – Going The Extra Yard Edition

Just because I’m at BlogWorld LA doesn’t mean there’s no Dot Com Pho. In fact, it’s a lot easier to set up a Pho meetup at a major trade show since there’s no shortage of people who want to attend. Another advantage of doing a Dot Com Pho during BlogWorld is you can generally find someone else to pay for it. In this case, Inmotion Hosting stepped up and comped the entire cost of food and drinks at the Yard House.

The Yard House, located at the LA Live Entertainment Complex, is an upscale-casual eatery known for great food, classic rock music and 160 tap handles of domestic, imported and craft beer. Whether you’re in the mood for a grilled burger and a pint of your favorite beer, or seared ahi and a chilled martini, Yard House has something for everyone. Yard House is the perfect place to unwind and take a break from the madness of BlogWorld. The best time to go is during Happy Hour, where you can get a yard long beer for only $7.00.

We had a full table of nine making it out for the Happy Hour Pho. It turned out to be the longest Dot Com Pho in history. By the time it was over, the sun had gone down, and it was 7PM. Time flies when you’re drinking yard long beer!

Dot Com Pho Vancouver – Project Sushi Edition

Yes, it’s called Dot Com Pho, but it’s not all pho. This week, the crew enjoy some Japanese ramen and sushi while talking about finances. Michael also shows off a nifty pico pocket projector as the gadget of the week.

  1. Boy that one is blasting dot com pho … I must say …

    1. Yes ZK,

      Blasting Dot Com Pho it must have been in LA, since it’s very rare and unusual to have beer at a Pho at all, let alone this much. I’ve only seen a small bottle of Asahi beer once at a Pho and only one person, John, had it.

      1. Yes never saw any kind of alcohol drink in dot com pho.

        But John was in LA so this can be count as exception.

        Nice to see the sponsor of that happening dot com pho. Would love to check their website and plan.

  2. Michael that small projector is really cool though price is bit high but if you need portability with mobility than this is good option.

      Seems like a good projector, indeed. Portable ones can be really helpful, especially if you’re a consultant and need to do a lot of presentations on the road.

  3. a yard long beer for only $7.00. !!!!! A pink beer cost around 1-1,5 euros here in Spain.

    1. And what is quantity ?

      In that I think that was more than ne ltr.

        Beside this he is also having some blogs which use adsense.

        John correct me if I am wrong.

        1. John Chow says:

          Investments are my biggest income source.

          1. Aah … we all know you simply love Apple shares.

            What sort of investment you are talking here.

    Looks like fun. Great idea to have Dot Com Pho even though you’re at a trade show. Seems like the best place to have Dot Com Pho since so many people can conveniently attend!
