Brian and I finally had the opportunity to check out Central Standard Brewing. We were there for the YP May Mingle a couple of weeks ago. I went there straight from work. Misty was already there.
Brian went home to take care of Molly and Saki first, then took an Uber over so that we would only have one car to drive home.
BS Sandwich Press was there so we went ahead and ate dinner there instead of making food at home. It worked out great.
I’m actually super grateful for these events because it forces me to get out and meet people. I ran into a couple of Leadership Wichita classmates, Dan and Jaimie, who I hadn’t seen in forever. Dan, specially. I hadn’t seem him since our Leadership Wichita graduation, and I saw him twice that day.
I ran into him the first time earlier in the evening as I was leaving work to go to the mingle at CSB. I was pulling out of our parking lot and he crossed right in front of me. “That looks like my friend Dan,” I thought. Naturally, I honked at him. Lucky for me, it was really him. LOL.
He was on his way to some fancy lawyer gathering that meets monthly at the Petroleum Club, which is located on the 9th floor of my work building. We chatted briefly. I didn’t think to mention the mingle because he was obviously busy.
Fast forward a couple of hours. We are hanging out at the CSB patio, having delicious food from BS Sandwich Press, when I see Dan walking up. He decided to stop by the mingle after his fancy lawyer thing. Seeing Dan twice in one day, after not seeing him for almost two years, was a real treat. We got to catch up a little bit and had a wonderful visit. And, I get to see him again in a couple of weeks at the 40 Under 40 recognition dinner. We also have one other Leadership Wichita classmate (Landon) who is also being recognized in this year’s class of 40 Under 40.
I look forward to seeing both of them and maybe you too. If you are at the 40 Under 40 awards dinner, please be sure to say hello!
