Some Coverage of our Speaker Dinner

by Teresa Valdez Klein on November 1, 2006

As many of you know, our speakers and their spouses were treated to dinner, wine, and gin tasting courtesy of DiStefano, Plymouth Gin and Maggiano’s Little Italy. Jason Calacanis might not have liked it because it was a blogger junket, but I know I enjoyed it.

Here are some of the things our speakers had to say:

  • Maryam Scoble found British gin expert Simon Ford very entertaining, although she’s not sure whether it was his fascinating talk about the history of gin or just his sexy british accent. Oh boy, watch out Robert! ;-)
  • Chris Pirillo has kindly posted the recipes for the drinks that Simon concocted for us.
  • BlogHer’s Elisa Camahort wrote about her experience of the dinner as a vegan who is allergic to alcohol. I’m glad that Maggiano’s was able to accommodate her dietary requirements, but I wish I’d known about her alcohol allergy in advance because I’m sure Plymouth’s master mixologist could have come up with some virgin and vegan concoctions for the occasion.

I’ll post more links to the dinner buzz as things get going.
