At the switchboard of the industry, an ambitious, sociable, and shrewd business woman connects us all. Lindsey Johnson is the founder/owner of Lush Life Productions and the essential friend to the industry. Whether it's education in rum, bourbon, bar ownership, or just being humane, LJ is helming a movement while being one of the brightest icons in the booze industry. Part Texas and part New York, Lindsey is here to raise the bar of quality, connection, and education. As Lush Life evolves and matures, the dawning of a new Bar Institute program emerges. Traveling from city to city, this amazing educational summit will hit Austin in June of 2016. Without Lindsey's contributions to the booze narrative, many of us would have never forged the wonderful friendships we share today. We sip Russell's Reserve 1998 and discuss how the Cure can sometimes put us to sleep.
