Looking to connect with local SF Bay Area creatives, it is going to be three years since I rebranded my blog and what a life changing experience it has been! I know I have said it before but if there is any piece of advice I can share, with any of you who are on a creative journey, it is to surround yourself with people who love like you do. By love I mean, passion, joy and ambition. They will help you when you have those moments of self doubt and inspire you to keep dreaming big when things get impossible. Seeking to capture this experience and share it, I recently partnered up with Verge Restaurant and Lounge at Toll House Hotel to host a small group of Silicon Valley style makers to an amazing evening of chic cocktails, delicious dining and creative conversation!
Verge is a hidden gem in downtown Los Gatos. It recently re-opened its doors after a beautiful remodel of not only its aesthetic design but of its menu as well. From dishes to drinks, I honestly have been blown away by everything I have tried. My favorites foods include the Wild Mushroom Cobbler, the Crispy Brussel Sprouts and the Pork Wings. My favorite libations are the Passion of The Fruit and the Green Tea Macha Fizz. The attention Chef Albert Nguyen-Phuoc brings to his cuisine craft is present in each of his creations, thus I suggest a shared dish experience so you can taste every savory to sweet bite of bliss.
I was joined for the night by beauties Amanda Kuzak, Nicole Bagai, Paulina Perrucci and Alyson Alconis and it was a delight to host such a fun group of gals. We talked about everything from blogging hiccups to career goals, as well as good old fashioned relationship girl talk of course! As I stated in an Instagram post from that night, "My Heart Is Full..." It was quiet a treat to break bread with up and coming Silicon Valley women in such an amazing setting. Make sure to check out their blogs for their re-cap of the night and stay tuned to the blog for another style maker event in the making!
