Friday May 7th:
Another jam-packed installment of ‘good people drinking wine and talking to each other’
Please RSVP to join a hand-picked group of good people – friends, colleagues, and super interesting bon-vivants – to drink some great wine, eat some delicious things, have your photo taken, and enjoy three short, yet spell-binding, presentations.
Dominic Bortolussi & Rob Ballantyne: Will talk about and offer wines from the magical kingdom of Rioja. Where new world meets old world, unicorns run wild, and where countless people found their first love of wine. Maybe you will too. For the first dozen or so people who arrive, there will be tasting glasses of a ‘1987 Tondonia Gran Reserva’ from the renowned Lopez de Heredia vineyard. For those who arrive later, you’ll also get crazy good wine, but it won’t be 23years old.
Anil Patel: Topic: Decision-making when thinking about Software As A Service (SaaS) tools. There’s a difference between Open-source versus an Open-Architecture, and connecting people and content is what matters most, not who owns the software.
Andres Aquino: Will announce the impending launch of our brand spanking new commercial web-application. PostageApp – “The easier way to send email from web apps”. PostageApp, which started as a side-project to solve our own email problems, seemed a good candidate to sell as a service. Andres will highlight the major pain points in PostageApp’s development and how we overcame them.
Rebecca Baran: Who has recently launched her eponymous website, will be here at the studio, taking photo portraits of the fully clothed or soft nudes.
It’s an early thing. Short and sweet. There will be tasting glasses of wine, as well as other alcoholic and non-alcoholics things. Cheeses and good nibbles will be all around, but it’s not meant to spoil your supper.
And then … at 7:00 pm, our encounter will end, and you will all move on to your dinner reservations and vegetarian yoga classes, full of cheese and ideas, a good wine buzz, and fun people to stalk on Twitter or Facebook over the weekend.
Our studio, in the Burroughes building, at 639 Queen Street West. Suite 502. We’ll jimmy the door to stay open, but buzz us at 5002 if it’s locked when you arrive.
Friday, May 7th
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
There will be neighbors in the building, entrepreneurs, graphic designers, fashion designers, industrial designers, web developers, animators, film-makers, gamers, writers, musicians, painters, wine lovers, comic book lovers, maybe even foot lovers – all stylish, vivacious and friendly people. So you should be here.
You’re strongly encouraged to bring along equally amazing people too.
