Let’s Eat! A (New) Startup Journey With Food and Friends
It’s HARD work building businesses from scratch. Don’t let anyone fool you with the lure that working for, or creating a startup of your own, is “freedom” and “work-life balance”. It is, depending on your perspective and lifestyle preferences, but not quite so glamorous as it would sound or appear. (For a great post on this subject, check out Jonathan Field’s blog.)
But alas, for good or bad, I’m off to create (not find) more happiness with my latest venture… Let’s Eat SF….and wanted to provide an update for my friends and followers.
To put this new venture in context, I have an insatiable appetite for two things:
INSPIRATION from PEOPLE and PLACES
My life didn’t please me, so I created my life. – Coco Chanel
A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of life. ― Thomas Jefferson
CREATING EXPERIENCES from THINGS WE DO
Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it. ― Julia Child
Let’s Eat encompasses all of the above, which is what makes it such a delightful concept to build out. Perhaps it will be my Magnum Opus, or perhaps it will not. But none-the-less it’s a new venture to feed my passion for culinary art and to create a meeting ground for others to connect with others who share the same.
A little about Let’s Eat….
The Short Story
Launching October 18th, Let’s Eat SF is a once (or sometimes twice) a month pop-up dinner party event featuring Bay Area food and specialty cocktails. For the price of a dinner ticket, attendees can enjoy local cuisine sans formal restaurant fanfare, mingle with new or old friends and enjoy a gourmet, full-course meal. Along with a selection of signature cocktails, guests will be able to take home recipe cards to re-create portions of their dining experience.
And on this (fun) note, I leave you with a little inspiration to go have some fun of your own….
