I made up a new word in honor of my awesome friend and sometimes partner in assorted adventures and general shenanigans, Funtrepreneur – a person who organizes and manages any lively and convivial enterprise, especially a gathering of likeminded revelers, usually with considerable initiative and risk.
If you are new in town or looking to be entertained within a bigger group, check out www.MadHatterPromotions.com. Our friend Gary Haas offers pirate parties, pub crawls, even bicycle bar toursand other special events in a safe and controlled environment. As Brevard Live writer (and host of the Annual Brevard Live Music Awards – Brevard’s Grammy’s) John Leach mentioned: “What Willie Wonka is to chocolate, The Mad Hatter is to Pub crawls.” Now go find out for yourself what that means.
