A Little Meeting

Gentle Friends, I usually make it rule to not talk about my work here on the Blog but keep things interesting and fun..... however, last Friday we had one of our infamous Quarterly Meetings over in Berkeley.  I work for a small Media Company here in the City and anytime we have a meeting we end up going out to lunch or drinks and somewhere fun....  well, last Friday we did all three... after the meeting, we headed down to Cornerstone Craft Beer Brewery.  This place is known for the 42 craft beers on tap.  I like some beers - but was not in the mood Friday for one.  They do have...

 ... a full, well-stocked bar... so you know I had to have a cocktail...  
I acquired one of  their drinks menu's and ordered a "Captain's Boutonniere" 

... it's a drink that has Captian Morgan Grapefruit Rum, St Germain Elderflower Liqueur a splash of fresh lemon juice served on the rocks.....

... a really delicious way to start off the afternoon.....  then we moved on to ordering some food...

... I ordered...

... the Shaved Tri-Tip Dip.... by the time my sandwich showed up as You can see I had polished off the Boutonniere...  I then had a "Purple Haze"...

...this cocktail has Ketel One Citron Vodka, Chambord a splash of pineapple juice served up....  
a bit on the sweet side... I should have just had another Boutonniere.  

I had a third cocktail but forgot to take a was another vodka based drink using 
Absolute Maderian vodka, peach liqueur, pomegranate liqueur and lime juice.... 
it was really tasty and pink colored and called a "Good Company." 

They have a sperate room for games....

... and some of the folks played ping pong......

... and we had a quick snap of all of us before the afternoon fun broke up...that's me in front, I just plopped myself down and smiled when I was told to!!  Overall it was a really nice afternoon and a great way to start off the weekend.

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. How fun! Your sandwich looks delicious...

  2. Now that's what I call a good meeting. The drinks and the food all looked yummy. I was a teacher for 30 years, I wonder why none of our meetings were that much fun!!!!!

  3. What a great meeting. You all look so happy and smiley.

  4. What a super way to end the work week! Your sandwich looked positively delicious.

  5. My CA cousin would come here (PA) and ask the meat shop for tri-tip. They had no clue! We had never heard of it before! If I had three drinks I would have slid right down those steps.

  6. A lot of the work meetings I attended would have been much more tolerable with a cocktail. (of course I might have been more vocal and gotten in trouble that way. LOL.)

  7. Wonderful! Thanks Edgar! You are blessed.


  8. Looks super fun! I generally love cocktails with St. Germain in them, and that one has an adorable name, to boot!

  9. Your Purple Haze sounds a lot like a French Martini, one of the drinks that I like. It looks like this was a lot of fun.
