At HDC 10, I had the opportunity to eat at THE DROVER in Omaha, NE. If you are not familiar with THE DROVER (capital spelling due to required emphasis on the name of the restaurant), it is simply the WORLD’s BEST steakhouse on the face of the planet. I used to live in Omaha and discovered THE DROVER almost twenty years ago. There is simply no comparison or description worthy of THE DROVER. It is one of a kind.
I had the good fortune of eating at THE DROVER two nights in a row when I was in town for HDC. It was perhaps the two most fulfilling nights of my life. I feel a warmth in my belly at the mere thought of THE DROVER, yet I also feel a certain sadness. Why? Because I am now far away from THE DROVER. But how far away am I? How many miles of unforgiving, whiskey fillet empty sadness and despair stand between me and THE DROVER?
Fortunately, Windows Phone 7 and Silverlight can easily provide me the answer. I present to you, the FIND THE DROVER application. This app brings me solace during the day just knowing that THE DROVER still exists. That while I may be many miles away, there is still a whiskey fillet being ever so lovingly grilled to perfection on iron grates. That some day, I will once again travel the barren wastelands between THE DROVER and I, and once again enjoy the “heaven on earth” that is THE DROVER.
Make sure to look for FIND THE DROVER in the Windows Phone Marketplace in the near future.
