Viko Baumritter and Treehouse at The Heavy Anchor

The Heavy Anchor, in the Bevo Mill neighborhood of St. Louis, Mo, is a place I try to visit any time I can find an excuse to do so. The reason being, it's a great bar on Gravois Ave. with some bitchin' mid-century furniture.

My excuse on Wednesday March 19th was for a networking meet-up called Treehouse St. Louis. The event series was created by Wesley Hoffman with the purpose of positively connecting people for social and business purposes. Wesley does a fantastic job of introducing himself and new people, but what I dig is how contagious his mood is. The place was buzzing with a positive vibe that obviously originated from the founder himself. This get together was only the second one for Treehouse, but it is already drawing a good amount of talented, interesting, and forward thinking individuals.

I had the pleasure of meeting some great folks at the first two events. One of them is a talented photographer named Adrian O. Walker. He was kind enough to shoot some pictures for me of the mid-century furniture inside the bar. Once I was able to stop ogling the seating, and after I twisted Adrian's arm to take some photos for me, I grabbed myself a beer and a couple FREE Strange Donuts. I find it a little overwhelming to talk to so many new people so first I caught up with a few people I met at the February event. I knew I was there to broaden my network, so I finally got around to making some new aquantances. Everyone at these events seem so great. I am already pumped for next months meet-up.

I forgot to have Adrian take a picture of this cool bench so you'll have to deal with my crappy iPhone picture
