This time last week I attended my first USBG Regional Conference. Words can not describe how awesome of an experience that was for me... It felt almost kismet that the conference was in DC as my first social experience with USBG members was with @geekbehindbars and @scuddlebird about a year ago! They were friendly, passionate about our industry, and supportive... then at TOTC I was introduced to other DC chapter members and it was the same experience. They made me want to become active in the organization, breaking out of my shell. Thank you ladies for opening this door for me, and thank you to DC - and the rest of the USBG - for being the community I needed.
These photos are just highlights from my first 24 hours... from hopping off the plane and heading straight to A Rake’s Progress to see Morgan & Linda (best decision ever btw... check out their brunch if you haven’t already!!), to our welcome dinner with BeamSuntory, and the next night with Amaro Montenegro... to everyone I met, and to everyone I have yet to meet on this journey - CHEERS! —-
