Our group seems to like to work in themes, so I guess the theme this week is beer! Friday night was our VIP networking event at Jaxtoberfest at the Shipyards. It was fantastic socializing and networking with our members while enjoying frosty malt beverages. Continuing on that theme is the fact that this Wednesday is our annual Beer Tasting, courtesy of Dan Regenhardt, Assistant Brewmaster for the Anheuser-Busch Jacksonville Brewery. I have known Dan for a few years now, and he is an incredible expert on the four food groups (malt, yeast, hops, and barley.)
I would like to give a shout out to the Jaguars Tailgating Committee for all of their hard work last week. What a beautiful day for a tailgate! We were fortunate that the game chosen by the committee was competitive, against a former division rival, and during Jacksonville's 48 hours of fall. Only negatives were that the Jags lost, and that someone let a bunch of Steeler fans into the stadium.
Tomorrow is Columbus Day, a day celebrated by bankers and postal workers all around the country. So, I will leave you with a quote, and ask you to please remember that Madame President has the day off J
