It just takes one good question to spark an evening of stories and we want to include yours in a future episode of the podcast. Whether you’re moved to answer the question (revealed to those who show up) or would rather just soak up a good time, please come! Our guests have really enjoyed these gatherings in the past and it is our pleasure to host another one. For the latest information about this event including any special instructions (nothing too onerous, we promise), either let us know that you’re interested in coming or check back here for updates. You can also follow and share the event on Facebook. That said, RSVPs aren’t needed. Just show up! We’d love to see you!
1-23-2019 – For past QuOTeD Socials we would suggest a pre-event special assignment for our guests to do and this time is no different. If you want to play, get a used envelope or any handy scrap of paper you can use to make a list. Write the heading: “QuOTeD Podcast – Feb. 22”. We suggest putting this on your fridge, bathroom mirror or some other place where you’ll see it every day. Stay tuned for further instructions. In the meantime, consider types of lists. What kind of list are we going to make? We’ll see.
Part 2: Make a List
1-30-2019 – Think of some things that you have that you “should” let go but you just can’t bring yourself to do it. Make a list of the first few things that come to mind. Add to the list as more things come to mind over the next week. You can write your list on the envelope in Part 1, but any paper will do.
Our History with Urban Forage Winery and Cider House
We have a history with Urban Forage and it is our pleasure to be making this place a part of our plans. The owner Jeff Zeitler and I met on a committee that was charged with starting a community garden. Then when Jeff and his wife Gita decided to pursue a dream and open a winery, they asked me to produce a video for their Kickstarter campaign. A few years later, it is so cool to see the business take form. They’ve managed to take a vacated pawnshop and create a very nice atmosphere for enjoying their offerings of various fruit wines and ciders.
Jeff and Gita on the Podcast
It’s true, Jeff and Gita as well as their two kids have appeared on an episode of QuOTeD. The family attended a QuOTeD social where we asked our guests to tell us about their first cars. It was a fun night! Jeff also shows up in our very first episode about what it means to be grounded. I really appreicated what he had to say about getting stuff done (like start a business): “I just did the work. I put my head down and did the work.” Later he played an art-collecting dentist in a story we made up about a painting. He did some really good improv work, which we actually recorded at the winery.
