Right, so, it’s been almost a year since we hosted a dinner. Time flies!
It’s been a crazy year. I got a new job. Six months later, that company got acquired and I had to get ANOTHER new job. We got engaged, and then we got married. And both of us now have pretty intense jobs at pretty intense tech companies.
So we haven’t had a whole lot of free time.
But we both miss Hearsay. It was fun to plan the menus together and test all the wine pairings (ahem, very important research!). Every group that joined us for a meal was unique and interesting, and it was pretty fantastic to watch friendships form between people who probably never would have met otherwise.
The question is, do you miss Hearsay too?
Leave a comment if you’d like us to get another dinner on the books. (Hint: we’re almost always willing to schedule something special if you come to us with a full group of 12.)
We’ve toyed with a few new ideas—three courses instead of six, cocktail parties with hors d’oeuvres instead of a sit-down dinner, brunch… if you have strong feelings about any of them, let us know.
