where to find me (part 1)

February 21, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Dan’s post got me thinking I should write up where I’ll be speaking and attending in the next few months. I’ve been so buried on the Project I Can’t Talk About that my details are still a little hazy. I was actually on the fence about attending the next An Event Apart in New Orleans, and then Brian Oberkirch (who’ll be speaking there) wrote the following:

Need more incentive to come to New Orleans in April? Jasmine, sweet olive, honeysuckle, street car rides down St. Charles to Audubon Park, boiled crawfish at Frankie & Johnny’s, 5 napkin roast beef po boys, Liuzza’s, Mandina’s, Jacques-Imo’s, the Carousel Bar, loa, Pimm’s @ Napoleon House, a gulf coast lingering slow night on the porch at the Columns. Beignets. Streets full of people more colorful than what you got in your town . (Just don’t bet them. They *can* tell you where you got your shoes.) Burgers at Port of Call after you drink too many touristy drinks like hurricanes & hand grenades. Faulkner House books. The Maple Leaf Bar. There’s a million of em, baby, you just got to come on down.

How can I resist a sales pitch like that? Expect to see me there. If you’re attending, tell me you read Second Verse and I’ll buy you a Sazerac.

    We look forward to seeing you there, Ryan! Now I just have to read more of Second Verse so I can legitimately claim that Sazerac. Well, that and I’ll have to start drinking alcohol.

    Hi Ryan,

    I actually just left SXSW came home and was really inspired/reaffirmed by the conversation you led at the end about work enviroment/expectations and such.

    Just wanted to say it was fantastic, I work by myself in a small marketing agency and often get misunderstood on how I work or how long things may take, and being able to disconnect and get things done is a big frustration at times. So at the very least, thanks for bringing us together to talk about something that I think is a lot more common then otherwise thought.

    I’m hoping to make it out to An Event Apart, if I do maybe I’ll buy you that Sazerac for inspiring.

    (I’m the one who goes for walks haha)

    Matt, thanks for attending the Core Conversation! I’m glad you enjoyed it, and cheers for contributing. Hope to see you in NOLA!
