Drink Slingers Featured on Wedding Venture Austin
We were excited to get a call from the folks at Wedding Venture with questions about how Drink Slingers makes things "go".
Here's a little spotlight! (Link to full feature after the jump):
Please introduce yourself to our readers.
We are Drink Slingers, an event bartending company in Austin, Texas. Our tagline is “Spirited Servers of Spirits”, and we think that just about sums it up! We have been in the industry since early 2015 and this year we received The Knot’s “Best of Weddings” award. We are a woman-owned, LGBT-owned business. The owners, Sadie Smythe and Nannette Taft are partners in life as well as business.
How did you get start?
The short version is that Nannette had been working part-time for another local bartending service (Urban Bartenders) when the owner of that service encouraged her to start her own bartending business. He was not interested in growing his business so he seeded her new venture with all of the leads he couldn’t, or didn’t want to, accommodate. Then Sadie joined in and Drink Slingers began to take shape. The name helped! People love our name and it is extremely memorable. Six months later, Urban Bartenders sold their business to Drink Slingers and the rest is, as they say, history.
