Lessons from @ev & @louispagan
These last few days I have been able to refresh my bartending skills via twitter.While in College I worked as a Waiter & Bartender in the southern part of Puerto Rico and my hometown of Ponce.Those where fun times. The biggest benefit was learning how to deal with people (sober & drunk).

While being a bartender my co-workers use to poke fun at all the cocktail recipes I use to download from the internet and experiment with (when we had downtime) at the bar. At one point they nicknamed me the Cybernetic Bartender
I think that sent me on my way to find my passion in IT Consulting and only continue as a bartender on family & friend private events (as a volunteer although I do accept tips).
Reading my timeline on Twitter I saw the following interesting tweet by @ev.
Having heard of Twitter promoting wine (@fledgling) I made the following comments regarding the whiskey to @ev and I was so lucky I got a reply back from @ev.
Little did I know that I was going to get some Whiskey Liquor History 101 by Twitter’s Co-Founder @ev.
@Chirp 2010 After Party @Ev & Me (He was very Approachable & I had the Privilege of Taking a Photo with him).
I aprecciate the time @ev took to reply to my tweet (although it did not surprise me) since I consider him one of humblest influential people (anotother being @chrisbrogan) I have met .
Searching more about the @fledgling project I found out that Twitter’s @Fledgling Wine was a fundraiser by Twitter for the Room to Read Effort. So if you are a wine lover and want to also donate to a good charity feel free to order a bottle via http://fledglingwine.com .
Future Mojito Video
Personally I really enjoyed seeing the process on how the mojito was created the only down side was that they used gelatin “non-vegetarian” to create the mojito (which will keep me away from trying it).
I use Twitter for many things but primarily for learning do you?
What have you found on Twitter educational and awesome lately?
