Babes Be Brewin’
December 17, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Calling all fabulous ladies for our next installment of Business Babes Be Brewin’!
This time it’s all about cocktails and conversation! Grab yourself a drink and chat it up with other awesome business women at Jakers Bar & Grill, December 17th 4:30pm – 6:30pm.
They say some of the best ideas were those scribbled on a cocktail napkin (they also say toilet paper but we’ll skip that one ☺-or not, you’ll have to be there to find out), so come have some fun with us, maybe write down an idea and absolutely meet some new friends.
Written on: A cocktail napkin
By: Rollin King and Herb Kelleher
The Story: Kelleher was a lawyer. King was a banker and pilot who ran a small charter airline. In 1966, they had a drink at a San Antonio bar. Conversation led to an idea for an airline that would provide short intrastate flights at a low cost. They mapped out routes and a business strategy on a cocktail napkin. Looking at the notes on the napkin, Kelleher said, “Rollin, you’re crazy, let’s do it,” and Southwest Airline was born. [editor’s note: This issue of the Bathroom Reader was printed in 1997. In 2007, in an interview with The Dallas Morning News, Rollin King admitted that the napkin story was “a hell of a story” but not true]
