When I arrived at Jason Groupp's huge studio in the art district of NY I almost cried because Frank, Luke, Alisha, and Timco where all there and it was just what I needed! I seriously couldn't believe it and it was the best surprise ever! Thank you guys so much! Wow! I'm still buzzing from seeing you and from how great everything went! So many awesome people here!
There were over 50 people there and it was incredible! A couple of weeks ago after my very first PUG in San Diego I talked with Raquel from Pictage and she basically said, in her very sweet midwestern way, "New York is gonna eat you alive - clean it up"... because we both knew that first one was not great and so I've worked really hard to make sure that each of these talks is relevant to the groups that I'm talking with and I was really stoked at how these first two on the East Coast have gone!
Afterwards 15 of us went down to this little bar called Half King and hung out and chatted a bit and then I snuck off for a few minutes with an old friend from Santa Barbara and ate a Gyro at the famous 53rd and 6th Street stand...sooo good
.... and in a few hours I head to Nashville! I'm so amped...although my first flight got cancelled so my connection will be a little bit tighter but I think it'll all work out!
