Additionally, a portion of the money raised will be donated to charities nominated by and voted for by the student
body. This year, GSB Gives Back is proud to support the African Leadership Academy, Pencils of Promise and the

SILENT AUCTION RULES
The Silent Auction opens at 11:30am on Thursday, March 3rd and will be located in Upper Arbuckle until Friday,
March 4th at 3.30pm when it will relocate to the LPF site. Bidders will record their bids on bid sheets detailing each
item. The minimum bid and the bidding increment for each item are specified on the bidsheet. To be valid, bids must
comply with these minimums and be written legibly. Bidding constitutes a legal contract to purchase that silent
auction item at the price you stated if your bid is the winning bid. The last (highest) valid bid entered prior to the
section closing will be the winning bid. Silent auction lots will close by section starting 6pm on Friday March 4.

LIVE AUCTION RULES
Live Auction bidding will begin at 8:30 pm on Saturday, March 5th at the White Charity Auction and Gala. When
bidding, please raise your hand to be identified. If a group is bidding on one item, please designate one person to
place your combined bid. Auction items will be awarded to one purchaser only. A bid acknowledged by the auctioneer
is a legal contract to purchase the item.
LIVE AUCTION ITEMS
Live Auction items are selected at the discretion of the GSB Gives Back Co-Chairs. We have already hand-picked a
few items with a balanced appeal to genders, classes and historical interest. A few of the Silent Auction items will be
elevated to the Live Auction based on “buzzworthiness,” entertainment value at the Live Auction, and projected value
at the close of bidding on Friday March 4. Typically, Live Auction items are accompanied by a 2 – 3 minute
performance or video to promote their item at the White Party.
TERMS OF SALE
Unless otherwise noted, all auction items expire within one year (March 5, 2012) or on the date of the item if stated
on the bid sheet (most relevant for sports tickets, etc.). There will be no exchanges or refunds. GSB Gives Back does
not make any expressed or implied warranties or guarantees on auction items regarding quality or value of items or
services. GSB Gives Back has attempted to describe and catalog all items correctly, but all items are offered and sold
“AS IS.” We have attempted to be as accurate and inclusive about restrictions as possible: however all items and
services are subject to the terms and conditions specified by the donors. Reservations for trips and vacation
accommodations must be mutually arranged with the donor unless otherwise noted.
Please note that Big Hitter events are for consumption exclusively by current GSB and Sloan students.
TAX INFORMATION
The excess of the amount you pay for an auction item over its fair market value may be deductible as a charitable
contribution for tax purposes. Please check with your tax advisor for specific advice on this topic. Please also note
that in addition to paying over fair market value, you must be the payer for the item to be eligible for a tax receipt.
With the exception of any Big Hitter and Live Auction items described as “Priceless,” this catalog lists the fair market
value of each item. Please note that where the term “Priceless” is used, it is intended as a marketing term for our most
popular offerings and is not intended to represent an estimate of the item’s market value. For any item listed as
“Priceless” in this auction booklet, the FMV has been estimated in advance through the good faith efforts of the
officers of GSB Gives Back and will be communicated to the acquirer at the time of invoicing.
Stanford University and the Graduate School of Business offer no representation or warranties regarding any items included in the catalog.
Auction participants are individually responsible for review of all items prior to bidding. Successful bidders accept all risk related to
purchased items. Successful bidders accept responsibility for fitness to participate in any physical activity. Successful bidders must act
responsibly in relation to any purchase of alcohol or event involving alcohol.

Promtastic Voyage 4!
You’ve heard the stories. Maybe you’ve even seen the pictures. Promtastic is back. And it’s bigger and better
than ever. Inspired by years past, eighteen tuxedo-clad gentlemen will pick you up from your rooms and
whisk you away for an exquisite evening (and morning) never to be forgotten: You will be escorted arm-in-
arm to an official corsage-gifting ceremony. A professional photographer will capture the delightful
awkwardness of your prom poses with your date and group. A sunset toast, complete with hand-made
chocolate strawberries, will precede an award-winning dinner. And then the fun begins: a plush party bus will
chauffeur us to San Francisco where we will enjoy VIP service at the hottest nightclub in the city. We will
dance the night away with moves that even our high school selves will be proud of. Everything will be left on
the dance floor. 4am late-night grub? Maybe. And to top it all off: the very next morning, you will be treated
to a gourmet brunch at your residence. You pick the night. You pick your dates. We’ll take care of the
everything else. And we’ll stop at nothing to make this the night of your (GSB) life. Get your bidding group
together.

prom•tas•tic (próm-tās'tĭk) adj. inspired by or related to a prom; conceived by an unrestrained imagination; unusual,
remarkable, extravagantly fanciful or marvelous.

Your Best Friend's Wedding
The man you love* kneels down with a surprise proposal that knocks you off your feet, stylish invitations are
sent to all your friends; guests cry tears of joy at your vows in a beautiful, catered ceremony at Thunderdome;
a limo shuttles you and your wedding party to a glorious poolside reception at Skydeck with views of the Bay;
over one hundred of your friends wait to celebrate the special couple at the elegant venue; open bar, live
band, first dance, cake cutting, DJ into the night, weirdness ensues, your drunk uncle** jumps into the pool in
jacket and tie, and you finish the night with that glorious thought you’ll only have once in your life: “That was
the single most epic wedding the planet has ever seen.” Your Best Friend’s Wedding will have everything you
want in a wedding and more: a best man’s speech, embarrassing toasts, a bouquet toss, “a little bit softer
now,” you name it. Plus, you don’t have to plan it and the next day you’re technically not even tied down.
Get a group together, get psyched for some nuptials, and prepare to bid big so you can “eat, drink & be
married” in this year’s most coveted White Party item. Your wedding may pale in comparison.
*Love not guaranteed – as the winners of this epic event you’ll anonymously select someone in your group to be married to someone in ours
**Your real uncle probably won’t be there. Unless you invite him. He’d be forever grateful.

GSB Iron Chef
Welcome to your very own kitchen stadium, where three of the GSB's most skilled chefs will compete for
your approval and your love. The contestants • Don Hoang • GSB President, Wok Master. Don brings his
unparalleled poise and charisma to Kitchen Stadium where he plans to take home the trophy without
breaking a sweat. Check out some of his work here: http://sgdproject.tumblr.com/• Ryan Votaw • Finance
Guru, Grill Master, Texan. Ryan had a smoker on the roof of his Manhattan apartment. 'Nuff said. A few
weekends ago, Ryan reportedly cracked in front of paparazzi to whom he laughed "Does anyone think this is
even a competition? Really?" • John Mullins • Frank Sinatra of his Day, Turducken King. John cooks from
his heart, which he claims gives him an advantage over his "cold-hearted" rivals. His house in Menlo Park has
just received its second Michelin star, which John said was "disappointing" but a "sometimes necessary step
on the path to three stars." If you win Iron Chef GSB, you and five to seven of your friends will select the
"secret" ingredient that each chef will highlight in a three course meal. You will score these various dishes
over candle light and fine wines at an Atherton mansion where all of your whims are anticipated. After you've
scored each dish, you will crown the next Iron Chef GSB.

doubted your ability to intelligently converse with someone well versed in 14th century prose. Or maybe you

chance. An evening to remember, a tale for your grandchildren, the culmination of your GSB
experience…Greg Williams will make himself available for a night out on the town with one very lucky GSB

soon forget. This season, the competition is hotter than ever…bid on a chance for you and 5 friends to judge
the competition, including your selection of the secret ingredients. You’ll be treated to two separate 3-course

It's life after the GSB...and you (uggh!) have to commute, work, and juggle personal relationships beyond
conversations about Vegas FOAM every day. Need some good old comfort food like mom would mail you
back in college? No fear! As someone who loves to bake and has received such lovely packages from her
own mom, I promise to send you 4 care packages over a year's time (expires Jan. 2013). Anywhere in the
world, at any time, when you want your favorite cookies, cakes, etc.(basically any home-baked items that will
properly ship), I will run to my kitchen and send you off a beautifully prepared care package. And yes, if you
want to appear like you have friends outside of work, I'll include a nice card :) And just like mom, you can
tell me all your particular food habits and I'll follow them to a T. Baked goods are easy to scale, so if you're
living in a house or apartment with more than one person, I will adjust the care package appropriately.

Belgium Beer & Chocolate Tasting
Some say that Belgium's notoriously vicious rift between its Wallonia and Flanders regions can only be
resolved by splitting the state into two sovereign territories. Historians have long attributed this divide to
economic, cultural and language barriers, but using the latest statistical techniques, it has been discovered that
87% of this rift can be attributed to one simple tension: between chocolate and beer. The Wallonian's claim
their Belgian pride from their famous beer, while those from Flanders argue bitterly that Belgium's
contribution to humanity lies in its chocolate. We ask you and five of your closest friends to join us in
bringing Belgian beer and Belgian chocolate under one roof for a tasting that can finally resolve this historic
tension once and for all.

Taco/Tequila/Michelada/Cerveza Taqueria Crawl
Did you know that there are 49 taquerias in Redwood City? The population of RC is ~74,000. That equates
to one of the highest per capita taqueria ratios in the country, if not the world (this excludes Mexico, of
course). Discover the scintillating carnitas at Taqueria Apatzingan or perhaps the to-die-for al pastor at El
Grullense and the incredible carne asada at Taqueria MexCal. You will be whisked away to "Little
Michoacan," with the Mexican/American/Latino MBA2 crew. This will be a trip you will not forget. We will
visit 5 taquerias on a beautiful spring day decked out with 20 gallon sombreros. At each taqueria we will eat a
taco of your choosing along with either a shot of tequila, a michelada (for those who don't know what a
michelada is, you will after you win this), or a good ol cerveza. Additionally, you will be taught some great
Mexican mariachi songs and there is a chance that Epi will serenade you with his breathtaking voice.

Are you someone who loves food? Are you one of those people that think New York has the best restaurants
in the country? Do you falsely believe that any city can top San Francisco's culinary wizardry? Then this one is
for you. Sample dishes from some of the best restaurants "The City" has to offer. Your friendly and
knowledgeable host, Darren Bechtel, will prove that nowhere can compete with San Francisco in the kitchen.
Winners will be treated to drinks at one of San Francisco's hidden speakeasies, where patrons will be served
delicious concoctions poured by mixologists (not to be confused with bartenders). Google it. Following
drinks, we will have the option of either dining at one restaurant or doing a culinary crawl, sampling
appetizers at one establishment, entrees at another, and dessert at our final stop. Cocktails, wine, and
transportation will be included. Food is on your own tab. (And trust me, you will be enjoying some GOOD
wine.) Thinking about bidding? Do it. It's for the kids.

GSB Flashmob

UC Berkeley did it, Ohio State did it, University of Kentucky did it. Now it’s time for GSB to make its
Youtube debut. We have searched the MBA-1 class far and wide to find anyone with an ounce of dance
talent. With the pick of the litter, we have trained in FOAM off-hours under the watching eye of professional
ballerinas and Indian pageant runner-ups. GSB FlashMob is locked and loaded and ready for your bid. On
your command, 85 GSB dancers clad in GSB neon undershirts will take a public location by storm, strip off
their daily wears of Nantucket whale belts and Bonobos pants and dance their hearts out. You choose when
we do it, where we do, and how we do it. We can send any message through dance, signage, or song. The
performance will be videoed and photographed by our semi-professional videographers and photographers
and then released on Youtube and Facebook. If Ohio State made 2,000,000 Youtube views and University of
Kentucky made it to Oprah, imagine what GSB Flashmob could do? 85 dancers….5 dance coaches…3
photogtaphers...2 videographers…1 adorable tree….Don’t miss out on making GSB history. Bid GSB
Flashmob!

Number of Participants: Enjoyable for all!

Soundtrack To Your Life

Intrepid music enthusiast, close your eyes for a few moments, and imagine a day where you're followed
around by a boombox-carrying, fingerless-gloved guy playing your own personal soundtrack with dancers
occasionally accompanying your entourage as you make your way from class to lunch to, perhaps, an
interview. Beginning at the crack of dawn, meditate upon the following: "Wake up in the morning feeling like
P Diddy…"
 You awake to the perfect soundtrack describing your day thus far: roll out of bed while Ke$ha recites your
every move in painstaking detail (assuming your every move involves brushing your teeth with a bottle of
Jack). Get your shower on and find that perfect get up for this great day, and head out the door…
  "Ain't nobody dope as me, I dress so fresh so clean…"
  What was once a silent understanding of how awesome you are has now become a truth universally
acknowledged by your peers. And it can all happen by winning this auction. What would you play during a
run through campus? Or a trip to DTPA? Just think how phenomenal your swag would be during a first date
-- with Montel's 'This is How We Do It' getting things started, you'd be near-guaranteed of finishing the
evening with some Boyz II Men (Baby all through the night... I'll make love to you, like you want me to...)
setting the mood and sealing the deal. Place a bid only if you are ready to harness pure awesomeness. Bid
early. Bid high. Bid your bland school day goodbye.

Team Peer Pressure

Does your roommate have a ‘do that’s a don’t? Have a friend that you’d like to see at FOAM more often?
Wish your SO would hurry up and pop the question?
We can fix these problems. We are covert team of 5 MBA students. We look, dress and act like everyone
else, but we’ll use our charm, savvy, and OB-training to subtly influence your target to change their behavior.
For example, if your roommate is long overdue for a haircut and doesn’t know it, we will dispatch a flock
attractive women to tell them how much they enjoy a freshly cropped coiffure. Simply put, we will harness
the power of peer pressure for good. Only limitation: we won’t encourage immoral, unethical or illegal
activity.

Learn how to make Cuau's Cantina Family Recipe for the Original Clamato-Beer

Ever wonder why Clamato Juice is associated with Mexican Beer?? Well almost 40 yrs ago in my hometown
Mexicali, Baja, Mexico, a bartender decided to mix the famous "Virgin Mary" with Beer in a new combination
of mexican spices and even seafood juice. Today, there is a wide variety of ways to prepare Clamato-Beer
that includes real seafood, or "chili and chamoy" goodies, among other ways. I will bring in all the ingredients
directly from Mexico if we can't get them all here. And I will teach you how to prepare an Award-winning
Mexicali-style Clamato-Beer. Cheers!! Your friend, CUAU ps. Includes 2 special Mexican Cantina Goblets!!

Rent 1 Baby, Get 1 Free

People always tell us that they'd love to babysit/borrow our twins. This strikes us as reasonable -- Johnny
and Eden are incredibly fun 7-month-old babies -- but we were never sure whether people actually meant it.
So, we are putting it to the test. The winner of this auction gets up to 3 hours with Johnny and Eden. Do
whatever you'd like with them. Seriously. Guys, they are terrific wingbabies -- Johnny alone has already
played a non-trivial role in one GSB romance (ask CO). Gals, cuddle them to your heart's content. If they
get fussy or start to smell, feel free to return them early -- it's win-win.

RoLos With RoLo
Have you ever had one of those mouth watering, sumptuous chocolate pieces of heaven with a warm, chewy,
caramel center? You probably have... BUT have you ever eaten one with a professional RoLoer? RoLo has
recently received certification as a Master Chocalatier - the most coveted designation from Chocalate's High
Court - The Royal Society of Chocolate Magistrates* (which is the Chocalate equivalent of the Court of
Master Sommeliers). Warning: Only chocolate lovers should pursue this item as this will be a crash course in
choclating and RoLo will be eating many rolos during the process. RoLo will devour one rolo every two
minutes while you lounge at Shokolat, Palo Alto's chocalate mecca and known for their unique chocolate
creations. This will be one indulgent afternoon of chocolate, caramel, and a unparalleled opportunity to see
the famous RoLo do what he does best. Devour the hell out of some rolos. Fun fact: The caramel in the
American version is thick and chewy, rather than runny, as it is in the U.K. and elsewhere. They were
advertised for many years with the slogan "Do you love anyone enough to give them your last rolo?". Well it
looks like you will find that out - Do you love anyone enough? Well RoLo sure loves his rolos and he'll be
damned to see anyone give them away. Since RoLo is such a rolo aficianado, there might even be some
european rolos imported across the Atlantic for this once in a lifetime opportunity. Imagine - dining with an
american rolo, a european rolo, and a mexican american RoLo? Does life get much better than that?

Nightmare on Serra Street: A GSB murder mystery dinner party
It was just another night in Palo Alto’s hottest speakeasy, until… BANG! A beautiful, young flapper fell to
the ground. Who can solve this senseless crime? Who among you is the murderer? Better question, who is
that looking so dapper over in the corner?! Presenting the GSB’s very own murder mystery! In this one-of-a-
kind experience, you and 9 of your friends will each play a critical role in this scintillating 1920s drama. After
a little character and costume help, you will rendezvous at the Schwab Speakeasy (aka, a transformed
Littlefield Reading Room) ready for your Great Gatsby debut. You’ll be transported to another time as guests
arrive in character to the smell of fresh appetizers, the sound of live piano music, and yes, plenty of bootleg
cocktails (and EANABS). As the evening progresses through dinner, dessert, and plenty more cocktails,
guests will unravel clues about that tragic night. By the end of the evening, you’ll think you know exactly who
perpetrated the crime… but do you? You’ll have to bid to find out!

Stanford Gone Wild: Party like an Undergrad
Looking to explore a new social scene beyond Schwab, Munger, or B412? Come experience the best nightlife
in the real hub of campus. This VIP party tour grants sketchy GSBers inside access to an evening of
youthful debauchery. Start with dining in exclusive ‘Row House’ eating clubs, pre-game at dusk in the scenic
Lake Lagunita, crash a real frat party (e.g. Exotic Erotic), and if you’re lucky, maybe even experience a cross-
campus Walk of Shame. Your MBA1 tour guides Araceli Ortiz, Becca Levin, Dylan Keil and Valerie
Villarreal (who were former Stanford undergrads) will give you lasting knowledge and tips for finding the
best, hippie houses, and late night munchies for whenever FOAM leaves you uninspired and seeking new
adventure.

GSB American Gladiators
Your heart pounds, threatening to jump right out of your chest, though it's drowned out by the deafening
roar of the cheering crowd. You wipe a bead of sweat off your forehead. Your red, white, blue
and...yes...gold spandex singlet hugs you in all the right ways. Adrenaline courses through your veins, and
your muscles tense as you effortlessly dodge a oncoming foam missile while dive-rolling toward safety. You
squint through your rec-specs, as the stadium lights catch a glare off the tufted, blond-highlighted hair of the
hulking giant standing menacingly before you. Your lips curl into a knowing smile: you were meant for this
moment. You were meant to be a GSB American Gladiator. Not a man or woman among us hasn't dreamt
of being The Challenger when we were a kid. You know how much you wanted to step up and face the
Gladiators. To test your mettle. To wipe the smirk off Gemini's face by sending him to the ground at the
business end of a jousting stick. Well now you and ~10 of your classmates can join forces in a full-scale,
winner-takes-all American Gladiators-style tournament testing your athletic prowess and...spandex-wearing
abilities. You'll face off against MBA2 Gladiators with names like Blaze, Lazer and...Blazer. You'll battle
through all the classic events: Breakthrough & Conquer, Powerball, Joust, The Gauntlet, Hang Tough, and of
course, The Eliminator. And if you dare to challenge the MBA2 Gladiators to claim your rightful title as a
GSB American Gladiator, you'll be showered with glory and celebratory beverages. But the Gladiators won't
go quietly into the night. You'd better bring it.

Just as with the original film, last year's White Russian Party was launched without much acclaim only to

Well, three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax...YOU’RE GODDAMN

Commission Eight Custom Art Pieces by MBA2 Artists!
From the MBA2 artists who brought you "Trevor: A Retrospective on 30 Years of World Domination," we
are happy to put our services back on the block. Let Alexa Bisinger, Natalie Diekmann, Jacqui Goldman,
Jenine Golueke, Heather Hund, Angela Rastegar, Frank Visciano and Xiaoning Wu help you class up that
dorm room or passdown house.. This item entitles the winner to commission 8 art pieces on any subject of
his or her choosing. Some ideas:
• Power Portraits - No great business leader has really made it until a smug portrait has been painted. To
make things happen in the future, you need to think big now.
• Passdown House Family Portraits - Concerned that you will be forgotten, and that life at the GSB will
continue unchanged once your two short years are up? Make your mark by installing the image of you and
your housemates over the fireplace
• Painting of Your Favorite Photograph - Do you want to appear less narcissistic? Don't worry, you can
show off your jet-set lifestyle by having a painting made of a favorite travel photo. "A patron of the arts and
you love to travel? Tell me more..."
• Abstract Art Piece – demonstrate your superior intellect by having a painting made that no one understands
but you. Paintings of your newly discovered emotions, you say? How touchy feely of you...
So pull out the checkbook and buy yourself some culture today. After all, art is an alternative investment!

Quartet) and Jean-Michel Fonteneau (SF Conservatory of Music). I will tailor the lessons to your existing
musical ability (or lack thereof). I will start off with 4 one-hour lessons with the option to continue for
$50/hour thereafter. You can use my cello during the first four lessons if you like, but if you actually want to
get better, you should probably rent one so you can practice :)

Commission 3 Surreal Paintings
Artist’s Manifesto: We do not qualify abstract painting as an attempt to substitute the inventions of the
intellect for a pristine imaginative conception. We believe that the inner life of a human is a vast and varied
realm and does not concern itself alone with stimulating arrangements of color, form, and design. There are
painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others like McLain, Arnau and Fryderyk,
who thanks to their art and emotional intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun… We might don't
say everything, but we paint everything!

Golf lesson for beginners - 3 sessions
The secret is out - the best deal at Stanford is playing the same golf course Tiger Woods used to practice at
for $20 a round. That is just over $1 a hole! You will also burn about 1,500 calories (minus the calories
consumed), see the San Francisco skyline, and escape from D&D. You want in on the deal, but have never
swung a club before? Fear no more! We will provide 3 sessions of introduction to the game of golf for you
and a friend at the Stanford driving range. Each session will be customized to your experience and goals. You
should expect to come away familiar with the swing techniques, short game fundamentals, and on-course
etiquette. For more experienced players, video analysis of your swing and on-course strategy will be covered.
The 3rd session can also be conducted live on the Stanford golf course. Coaching is provided by 2 friendly
but golf-crazed MBA1s, who will assume the roles of the Co-president and VP of GSB Golf Club next year.
Range balls, clubs, and transportation will be provided. All you need to do is to put on a pair of comfortable
shoes, show up and, swing away!

Crash course in Stochastic Finance - Black and Scholes and more!
Come and discover the marvelous world of stochastic finance! Were you frustrated when Jenter showed the
Black and Scholes formula without explaining why it worked? Are you dubious when you see how ALL
bankers' structured finance desks post profits EVERY DAY? Are you wondering how (the image of) a
drunkard walking back from FOAM can help you better understand finance? Most importantly, do you want
to impress next time you talk about finance (for an interview, or at the beginning of your internship)? This
one-day crash course is for you. Benoit has been in the field all his professional career, and some of you know
he LOVES teaching finance. Because it is all about understanding new concepts, we'll keep the size to 4
persons. At the end of the day, you will
• Understand what Ito can do for you
• Know how to derive the Black & Scholes formula... and why they won the Nobel prize for it!
• Be familiar with an imaginary world in which bankers do not mind taking insane amounts of risk to make
ridiculous profits
• Know what a random wiener sausage is
"Yeah, but what technical background do I need to understand that?" ==> The only prerequisites are:
remember Taylor series (approximating a function with polynoms) and basic integral calculus (we will do a
couple of changes of variables - OMG!). That's all!

Your Own Valet, For a Day
Do you lack sophistication? Do you long for the sweet trill of an upper-crust British accent to announce your
arrival? When you watch Batman do you gaze longingly at Alfred, wishing you had such a noble and helpful
companion by your side? If so, then look no further: Joe DiMento - educated in the towniest establishments
and reared on a diet of Anglophilia - will be your valet for a day. Services include: personal wakeup with
breakfast and newspaper, chauffeuring to destinations of your choosing, a delicious lunch, and throughout,
measured, mellifluous commentary on the weather, art, literature, and geopolitics. Naturally, you will be
treated like a Lord, and your presence will be subtly announced by your valet in all settings. (Note that the
everpresent valet makes a great gift for someone who likes attention, or whom - ahem - you think might be a
bit pretentious to begin with. And while you think having a tuxedoed manservant would be all fun and games,
it might get old rather quickly, and so would make a good bit of fun to have at a "noble" friend's expense.)

national park larger than most of New England • How you can find 4 star hotels at 2 star prices last minute •

dirt road that take you to endless, summer-night concerts • How to get hitch hikers across the US-Canadian
Border illegally • What gear do you need, how do you defend against violent bug swarms, how many miles a
day you should cover, and what foods last longest without ice • Where can you kayak between iceburgs •
When's the best time to see the northern lights • Why taking a roadtrip is a better conclusion to our time at

Peche Mel Bush Cocktail
Want to try a fancy cocktail? You can do that with beers too! This recipe is probably the most famous
cocktail with Belgian special beers. 1 bottle of Peche Timmermans, a delicious lambic beer made with real
peaches + 1 bottle Bush Ambree, the strongest Belgian beer = 2 bottles of a delicious cocktail! According to
the legend, the Bush could not be exported to the USA because there was a famous guy who did not want to
have his name associated with alcohol. I don't know who that is, but I know he was wrong! Bonus: with the
two bottles, you will receive the special glass specifically designed by one of the breweries to serve this
cocktail.

on contemporary landscape, still-life and figurative painting, Jill works with acrylic on canvas, but has also

surroundings and life experiences. Jill has been especially influenced by Pop Art and American poster

significantly. In her use of rich color and bold lines, Jill brings a special charm and whimsical attitude to her
work.)
