Good morning, afternoon, and evening. I'm not sure which one it is. Time gets confusing.
We've been working hard (or hardly working) for our first event July 6th. Our flyer has been released, we're twenty minutes from releasing the time table and things are looking a okay. Time to write a blog.
CONNECT was named connect for a reason. We don't do things just to do them. Actually, we do but that's mostly when we're either bored, fucked up, or something in between. Sorry mom and dad, its the way it is.
Connect is the basic idea of bringing together two things. You connect with people, with communities and, on the other hand, you disconnect from your phone when having sex. Well at least if you have a good sex life you do!
We thought of connect after multiple hours of brain storming. Connecting to my wifi, we realized the perfect name was right in front of us. Connect. It's our mission statement, our goal, and what we're doing all of this for. To connect people, locals and communities. Yes, we're doing it for the 305 but that's just the beginning. Cities across FL, the US, and the world need UMAMI to connect.
CONNECT is July 6th. We're bringing together the best of local creatives. I like to say creatives because it encompasses everyone. Anyone who starts a business, either as an artist, musician or entrepreneur has creativity. It's not all about having the best business strategy, knowing people, or the money to do so, its about having a creative idea and going through with it. Going through with it is a feat in its own that should be celebrated by all.
Our flyer is under the "Events" tab. We hope to see everyone in the 305 there. To party, first of all, and, secondly, almost as important as the first, to connect.
