From Bartender to Bar Partner 

Bartenders are rising in the cocktail industry, not only creatively, but as partners in their bars and they are reaping the rewards of ownership. What does it take to find a partnership that works? How can bartenders find backers that see them as true partners, not just talent? In this seminar, we will meet three bartenders who are now partners and co-owners of their operations. They include Jim Kearns, who partnered to create Slowly Shirley, The Happiest Hour and Tijuana Picnic, Meaghan Dorman, who is a partner at The Bennett, Dear Irving and Raines Law Room with Alberto Benenati and Yves Jadot, as well as Lucinda Sterling, who is a partner at Middle Branch and Seaborne with the late Sasha Petraske.
 
Michael Anstendig, Partner at  Hanna Lee Communications Moderates this fascinating discussion.

Having a Theme Without Being a Theme Bar
Plus bonus interview with Neal Bodenheimer. 

Moderated by Michael Anstendig with special guests Mark Maynard-Parisi, Josh Mazza and Neal Bodenheimer.
There is a narrow line between a bar having a theme (good) and being a theme bar (not so good). What does it take to pull this off successfully? How can a bar honor a theme without being predictable, pigeon-holed or clichéed? In this seminar, we will meet three successful bar operators who manage to walk this line gracefully and with outstanding results.
