I hosted a party with Superconductor’s Matt Brimer a couple weeks back. Since I’m more or less incapable of throwing a party these days that doesn’t turn into a NYC tech mixer, we decided to embrace it and craft an appropriate drink menu.
I wish I could take credit for more of this, but it’s primarily the work of Brimer and HomeField‘s Reece Pacheco.
They tried to capture the spirit / theme of each startup in the drink. Or something like that.
