Day 189

Busy week coming up, especially for a couple of my classmates.

First this Friday (March 23), the college presents another edition of Caps, Corks & Forks, the wine vs. beer dinner. I was part of the beer team for the inaugural edition–as you may recall, we tied with the wine students 3-3, only to lose in a tiebreaker. This time, fellow first-year students Kellye Robertson and Jennifer Nadwodny will be part of the beer team, and I’m sure they and their team-mates have a great selection of beers chosen to be paired with some fantastic food.

The one thing we need is more beer lovers in attendance. At the last event, there were perhaps 5 beer lovers out of 80 in attendance, so it really was remarkable that we convinced enough wine drinkers to choose beer in order to tie the score. If we can get just a few more beer drinkers out, I’m sure Kellye and Jen can sew this one up. For six delicious  courses with fabulous wine and beer–and you get to discuss beer with your tablemates for 3 hours–it’s $80 per person.

Then Jen and Kellye have one day to rest from their labours before they are back at it on Sunday. They and nine other female brewers have created seven special beers, which will be unveiled  at Beer for Boobs, a fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation happening at barVolo in Toronto. I had a taste of Kellye and Jen’s beer, called Cocoa Inferno, and I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but woo hoo! I fell to the ground, crying with joy. So, $20 gets you in the door, then supplicate yourselves before the goddesses and seek their permission to buy a pint of Cocoa Inferno.

Now that I’ve told you how to spend your weekend and your money, back to our regularly scheduled program.

Blake Landry, Business Aanalyst with nGen (Niagara Interactive Media Generator) visited Strategic Communications to talk to us about what services are available for small business start-ups, including advice on how to draw up a business plan, marketing research, government grants, and making connections with investors. Very interesting, and his material should help immensely as we prepare our own fictional business plans.

…a draft of which is due in a week. Whoops, gotta get back to work!
