Slide Over, TED. Nosh Talks Sets Table for Atlanta Dining Industry Networking on March 7
Fresh. Meet. The thousands who make up Atlanta’s restaurant industry family hunger for fresh networking options to celebrate successes and swap scoop on trends. Food and beverage industry veteran Karen Pagano is cognizant of their conversational cravings -- that’s why she’s launching a new by-the-industry and for-the-industry networking organization dubbed Nosh Talks. “Booze Schmooze” pops the top on Nosh Talk’s series of regularly scheduled socials and taps Monday Night Brewing (670 Trabert Ave. NW in Atlanta) to host the 2-5 p.m. event on Monday, March 7. Light bites and sips from Monday Night Brewing’s signature suds lineup whet appetites for a beverage-centric panel discussion about the creative craft cocktail and burgeoning local beverage industry. Moderated by local liquor licensing attorney Dan Plevak, the panel features Aria’s Andrés Loaiza, The Painted Pin’s Trip Sandifer, Monday Night Brewing’s Jonathan Baker and Charlie Thompson from American Spirit Whiskey. Buy tickets online through Eventbrite: $10 for students, $20 for industry members and $40 for non-industry guests. Nosh Talks strives to be a mechanism for mentoring and giving back to Atlanta’s restaurant community. As Pagano says, “Our city is focused on giving, not receiving, and that sets us apart.” For more information and to discover ways to get involved, go to noshtalks.com or follow Nosh Talks on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
