Today, I did a bit of moonlighting. A good friend (who also happens to be a great winemaker) asked me to help out with a group of 120 pharmaceutical executives that she was hosting at her winery.
It's not a huge stretch of the imagination to anticipate that large groups of people, drinking alcohol, can sometimes become a little unruly. The task of keeping that many people focused on the wines, the winemaker's story, and the greater Napa Valley experience can often seem a little like herding cats. However, the event went extremely smoothly and all the executives departed with smiles on their faces.
It was fun to do something other than my everyday routine.
