“LA Influencer Dinner” by Carnivor Wine
June 19th, 2014
Tuesday night was one for the books!
About a month ago the good folks at Carnivor Wine approached me with a simple idea. “Bring together twenty of your favorite ‘influencers’ in Los Angeles and we’ll provide dinner and red wine all night”. Hmm, deal.
I started by thinking about what it means to be an “influencer” and how subjective the term is. I wrote down some buzzwords and struggled a while with definitions. I eventually settled on a three characteristics that I thought were necessary to be considered an influencer.
1) An influencer is creative.
2) An influencer spends time doing the things they are passionate about.
3) An influencer inspires others.
This was a great opportunity for Alex and I to catch-up with some of the guys who’ve had an impact on us since moving to LA, as well as a chance to meet some of the people that influence them… The outcome was an incredibly rare evening of shared interests, thoughtful discussions, hard laughs and new friends. In fact, it was such a success that we’re considering making this a seasonal thing.
