It's a Long Way to the Top if You Want to Rock and Roll: Ideas in Action

Have you ever wanted to pick the brain of Austin's serial proprietor, Bridget Dunlap? The owner and founding force behind Austin's Lustre Pearl, Clive Bar, Bar Ilegal, and Bar 96 (and two others to open in 2013), has a lot going on and a lot of experience to share.

Bridget will join us at our next meetup for a talk and Q&A session. She will talk about her own business pursuits, which include the processes of having opened multiple establishments in the Austin Rainey Street District, juggling these different ventures, and her driving motivation. She will also answer your questions.

Meetup starts at 12:00, the talk begins at 12:15, and there will be plenty of time for Q&A at the end. Please come with questions!

You can read more about Bridget Dunlap here:

As always, if you plan to eat lunch that day, consider doing so there - the fine folks at the Flying Saucer have generously donated their room to us.

    Many thanks to Bridget for reinforcing to the rest of us hardworking (and sometimes frustrated and discouraged!) 'treps that vision, honesty, authenticity, discipline, self-belief, hard work, persistence, "treating people right," ... and oh, yes, did I mention hard work (?) can, indeed, result in much success. I shall press forward!

    And many thanks to Thomas, Tony and Amanda for making this information and experience available to us!!

      Hey Dale - it's a pleasure to do this each month. But we couldn't do it without the group - so thanks for being part of it!

    Bridget did a wonderful job and was inspirational. I was impressed that she stayed until everyone that wanted to had the opportunity to speak with her. Additionally, a friend and I ran into her at Clive and we had a long conversation last night. She's the real deal! Thanks for having her speak to the group!
