On November 6th, we celebrated the launch of deliberateLIFE and our iPhone app with a little party at The Stable Cafe in San Francisco. It was a lovely evening filled with laughter, good conversation and amazing food provided by Savoy Events an Oakland-based sustainable and eco-friendly catering company. The food was really something else, and we love their business model, so please consider using them for your next event!
If you loved Ken's cocktail at the party, try making it at home. He was kind enough to share the recipe he designed for the party. Named 'The Perennial' the drink is a nod to both our belief in sustainability and a well-wish that deliberateLIFE Magazine will have many seasons to come. Enjoy!
