“The Medellín Living event at Humo BBQ & Bar in May 2014 was a hit! As a restaurant, we were able to promote our Happy Hour, share our concept and cuisine with a new segment of locals, and grow our following within the community. As a business owner, the networking opportunities were incredible, Dave and Ryan are very good at tapping the professional channels of locals, foreigners, expats and frequent travelers within the city. I hope we can team up again very soon to have another successful (and fun!) event!”
— Carmen Angel, Chef & Owner, Carmen Restaurant Medellín, Carmen Restaurant Cartagena, Humo BBQ & Bar
