Hosting my first dinner in over a year

It’s been over a year since I last hosted a dinner.

But when my friend Sherry told me she was in town, I thought it time to bring ’em back. And then I found out my buddies Clay and Phil also in town, so double-bonus.

It’s funny – I’ve realized more and more that the job of a host is very simple:

  1. Curate
  2. Set expectations (in my case, a stronger focus on the personal size combined with an irreverent approach)
  3. Get the hell outta the way

Food is nice. Ambience is important (we were in the “Swords & Pistols” room). But the people who show are key.

I am pretty grateful of knowing so many dope-ass humans.


Oddly enough I got this email today too:

Go host your own dinners.

What are Quick Thoughts?

Inspired by Seth Godin's indefatigable daily ouput, Quick Thoughts is where I give my quick thoughts on business, entrepreneurship, productivity, and living an enjoyable life.


They are posted by me on Facebook before being added to SJO.com (so you can follow me there if you prefer).
