Additional details

Well, would ya look at that. Autumn’s here, and if you’re anything like us your calendar somehow filled all the WAY up—and what better catalyst for a lively season than a morning full of not one, not two, but THREE absurdly inspiring creative folk? We’ll be at Wanderlinger Brewing Co; parking is available on surrounding streets, but is in kind of short supply—so carpool, walk, or bike if you can. We can’t wait to see you there!
