I poured scotch, made Manhattans, wine, and schmoozed with people who are still great connections today. One of them was on the board at my grad school and made a call, I got my acceptance letter the next day.
Yeah I might aim to work at a higher end place opposed to working at party's. I never thought of it like that.

I've known a few bartenders that have met some really important people in their time. That's pretty awesome when you think about it. Oh and you Matt are a lucky son of a gun for knowing that guy

We kind of got screwed, we missed the tech boom and also missed the low commodity prices. If I had a time machine, I'd go back 15 years and buy ALL THE SILVER AND GOLD haha. Oh and that Google stock I heard something about
Man, if I can turn back time.
So many missed opportunities. I was young so I can't blame my self haha.

Maybe as a bartender I can get to know some people that will come in handy for investing haha
