I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun the VO Cafe Podcast Bash was, so I’ll skip how to begin telling you and I’ll just tell you…
Friday night was dinner at Ted’s Montana Grill. Two words: Bison Burger.
Then we hit McCoy’s, a genuine Irish dive bar!
Saturday during the day was brunch at Mustang Harry’s. Two more words: Eggs Benedict.
Saturday afternoon was the Voice Talent Production Roster Dinner at Hurley’s. Three words: Mango Chutney Swordfish.
Saturday evening was the Bash itself! Here’s me with some of the VO Cafe staff:
And here’s me dancing with Lindsay Sheppard!
A huge thank you to everyone who attended, and a special thanks to my fellow organizer Trish Basanyi, as well as Erik & Lindsay Sheppard of Voice Talent Productions. A great time was had by all!
TIP OF THE WEEK: I’ve been to the first five Mixers and I had a blast at every single one. While the Bash didn’t have 400+ voice talkers running around in an arena-sized venue, it was very special. On top of that, when there are less people in attendance, you can do some hard-core networking by taking the time to really get to know someone by listening and sharing. If you didn’t come because you didn’t think it would be “worth it”, it’s your loss!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
STUFF!: This short film was made by my friend Peter Ganim and has two of my favorite people in it: Eileen Frances Stevens and Johnny Heller. It’s bleeping brilliant! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yX_YZ6wqmq0
