It’s a special moment when you have a room full of people who you care about and who inspire you. After 5 years of having Verbal+Visual, I was lucky enough to have a moment like that. It was a special night for all of us, though; the team members who we sweat with day in and day out, the sponsors who were so generous in their responses for the event, the clients who came by to say hello and enjoy a drink, and the family members who traveled from all over to support our efforts.
Highlights of the night include the launch of our new website, the generosity of attendees to donate to our charities of choice, the delicious bite-sized treats provided by the talented chef of the evening, Tessa Liebman, visits by parents and family from out of town (including multiple family members from Chicago!), a web-infused drink menu (The Ruby on Rails, anyone?) and much, much more (see pictures below).
Before getting to the pictures, we have to thank our incredible sponsors:
Uproot Wines provided all of the wine for the evening, including their brand new 2012 Grenache! For a bottle of wine with a tech twist, try a bottle of Uproot today. Shipped right to your door!
Haute So Sweet provided us with an assortment of cake pops, including a birthday cake pop that nearly made my mouth melt. Their cake pops not only taste fantastic, they are good for the health conscious dessert lover.
Brooklyn Brewery provided all of the beer for the evening, which was all fantastic. If you haven’t tried it yet, do so the next time you’re out!
We look forward to celebrating with everyone again, and we won’t wait another 5 years to do so! A very special thank you to everyone who attended and made the event special. It’s something that everyone on our side won’t forget for the rest of our lives. Cheers!
