Joby Schraier – New York

Joby Schraier remembers the first time he crossed the Brooklyn Bridge as if it were yesterday. He was on a business trip, going to consult with a new auto parts shop that was opening in Long Island. He was driving in early in the morning, and he had not spent much time in the city before, so he took a few voluntary detours and checked out all that the area had to offer. He didn’t have his meeting until later in the day, so he took full advantage of the time available to him.

First, he parked his car right outside of Union Station and hopped on the metro. He first took a walk around Central Park to ease his legs after the drive. A few hours had passed, and he had worked up an appetite. He went over to Greenwich Village and had a bagel with an espresso at a street side café. He struck up conversation with the waitress, who told him he should wait until night to go see Times Square because it would be more scenic then, with the lights and all. She then recommended he goes to Chinatown for lunch and gets a taste of the diversity of the city.

So Joby Schraier did exactly that; and it had turned out his client wanted to take him out that night in Times Square, so it worked out perfectly. With his soon-to-be successful new friend by his side, he was given a proper tour of the city’s dining and nightlife.


Joby Schraier – South Carolina

Joby Schraier’s experience in North Carolina got him in touch with his wild side, but when he got to South Carolina, he embraced a much more elegant take on the South. He crossed into the state right outside of Myrtle Beach, where he was booked for a weekend on a country club. South Carolina has been host to multiple PGA Tours, and has some of the best golfing in the country concentrated in an area full of championship courses.

Each day,  Joby Schraier would get up and start his day with playing 18 holes right after a light breakfast. By lunchtime, he would be making his way toward the ocean, but still finding a small ma-and-pa barbeque stand to sample all he could of that vinegary BBQ flavor. He relaxed on the shores throughout the late afternoon and read books as he worked don his tan. Then, he would end the day with a seaside seafood feast, usually including a fresh catch of the day and the accompaniment of a glass of red wine.

After leaving Myrtle Beach, Joby Schraier walked through the historic downtown of Charleston and then made his way back to the coast, this time going to Hilton Head for a similar routine that he enjoyed so much while in Myrtle. Joby Schraier really enjoyed his time in South Carolina, and his golf game benefitted greatly from all the practice he got on championship courses all over the state. To this day, it was his most memorable golfing trip ever.
