…which clearly, you do.

Silicon Alley Insider thoughtfully posted details regarding the British open today. Live open streams will be available tomorrow (and were today). You have two options:

  • Starting at 4 am ET, watch the broadcast all day until play is over
  • Or park yourself in the virtual grandstands and follow the groups at holes #9, 10, and 11 until about 3pm

Now that’s dedication.

See the full post here.

Cheers,

Lauren

I know I promised you photos Friday, but better late than never, Martini Lifers! Our Q3 offsite was everything one would expect from the Martini Team – interesting, effective, and a killer celebration fitting to a successful Q2. We returned to beautiful Lake Tahoe for some hiking, wakeboarding, jet skiing, grilling, and yes, beer.

Ahh, sweet, sweet summer!

Enjoy photos of an afternoon on the lake, below.

More to come in the next couple of days!

Cheers,

Lauren

This past weekend, I was down in Beverly Hills enjoying the (eventual) Southern California sunshine. While making the rounds on Wilshire, I happened upon the Beverly Hills Concours d’Elegance! How fortuitous, and admittedly embarrassing that I didn’t know it was going on in the first place. At any rate, it made me all the more excited for Pebble Beach this August. I took a few photos of my favorite cars – apologies for the shoddy quality, my point and shoot was out of batteries and my blackberry can only do so much. As you can see, I have a penchant for the classics, and red and white, apparently.

Cheers,

Lauren

This past Saturday, our event Passion Meets Performance was a rousing success. Huge thanks to Aston Martin, Cirrus, Lotus Vodka, Belgrave Trust and Quintessentially for making the day simply fabulous!

I won’t bore you with my commentary, and will let the pictures speak for themselves. I mean, I got to hang out in a Cirrus. Just another day at the office, right?

Cheers,

Lauren
