In response to the recent gas tax increase, New Jersey’s Pole Position Raceway is offering a 23 cent race to all of the visitors to their Jersey City location on Wednesday, Nov. 23. The offer is only open to visitors that present a gas receipt as proof of a fill-up between Nov. 1 and Nov. 23.

The 80,000-square-foot facility has two quarter-mile tracks and karts that can go up to 45 MPH. They also offer V.I.P. spaces for private parties and corporate events as well as arcade games, flat screen TVs and authentic racing memorabilia.

The offer is only available at the Jersey City location and is limited to one per customer. It cannot be combined with an additional offer and guests must show proof of a minimum 10-gallon purchase.

“We understand the frustration of New Jersey motorists due to the recent gas tax increase,” says Karen Davis-Farage, president and co-owner of the Pole Position Raceway venues in the East. “On Wednesday, Nov. 23, we hope to ease those frustrations by providing races at our all-electric and emission-free kart racing facility. We look forward to offering a thrilling race experience and softening the blow that motorists are currently facing.”

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:
