The GBTC summer wine tasting

ScottAndJohn.jpgI attended the Greater Baltimore Tech Council's summer wine event at the Emerging Technology Center in Canton on Thursday night, and it was a pretty packed place.

About 120 people showed up. The after-party continued for some at the Austin Grill.

It's a casual event -- helped along, of course, by the copious amounts of wine that was poured. Technology companies that want to introduce themselves to other business folks can volunteer to pour their favorite wines at these quarterly events.

Some choose to pour beer. Check out Scott Palmer and John Busteed, two employees of RWD Technologies, with their glasses of Resurrection ale. (pictured left)

For a list of the companies who poured, check out the GBTC's summary of the event. There's also a bunch of photos on Flickr, and of course, the requisite Twitter thread.

Mario Armstrong, a tech journalist who blogs and does radio reports for NPR, WYPR, and WEAA, was also shooting footage for new online video program highlighting the tech industries in the Baltimore/Washington area. It's called Pretty cool stuff.
