Twitter Spotlight: Adrienne Allen

Twitter Spotlights are always fun for me. I love getting to know someone I follow on Twitter.

These little interviews are even better when I learn something new about a real life friend. Today you get to meet the wonderful, whip-smart, fearless Adrienne in a special Monday edition of the Twitter Spotlight.

Drinks on me

Remember when I told you about this event?

Walt and Bowery Collective are doing it again. Whiskey Washback, the next edition, will take place on Friday, October 24 at the Bowery Hotel.

(AKA my favorite place.)

If you like whiskey and bourbon (or you want to learn more about both), here’s your chance: Bowery Collective is bringing back Whiskey Washback on Friday 10/24 at Bowery Hotel.

And if you think the brown spirits are a bit scary (you shouldn’t–trust me), know that there will be cocktails available in addition to straight tastes.

This awesome event will sell out so if you’re interested, get tickets here ASAP.

To get 25% off your ticket, use promo code JEN. See you there!
