 Cue "Choir Music"!
Hey GB users! It's been a really long time since I've posted here on the site (Around 7 months now) but I wanted to share this with all of you. 
When it comes to the Whiskey Media sites, I usually spend my time at Comic Vine and Anime Vice. At the beginning of this month I had the privilege to accompany the Comic Vine staff once again as their convention intern for Wonder Con in San Fransisco. You are probably wondering, "what does this have to do with video games?" Well nothing, it has to do with Giant Bomb.
Since the comic book convention was held in San Fran, I took the opportunity to visit the offices of my favorite websites. I was there After Hours so I didn't get to meet everybody. I did meet Vinny, Drew, Melisa (Whiskey HR) and Alex Navarro from Screened for the first time. I got to see Ana (AHR), Ethan, Daniel (Rizener) and Norm from Tested once again and of course I spent my weekend with Joey, Sara (Babs), Tom Pinchuk and Tony Guerrero (G-Man) from Comic Vine. 
I was at the Whiskey Media Office... Of course I took pictures: 

Me (sporting my new GB shirt) and Cool Baby!

That's really cool. I especially like the shots of Babs and Daniel.

Highly amusing when you typed Alex Navarro from Screened instead of Alex, we GBers have known him for years.

Neat! I got to meet all the GB staff plus Alex at PAX. You're lucky to be able to go to the office though.

That's Dennis Calero (comic book artist), there was a party being held by Comic Vine after the convention so a lot of people in the comic book industry were there. Oh an yeah, the girl thing... I get that a lot! o_O

Something like that. I know a lot of these people... so it's not like I'm some random person entering the Whiskey Office, but how I understand it.... any random user CAN go to the office and get a tour and such! ;)

@Kjellm87: Don't we all?

Also, if you pay close attention, you can see a completely clean shaven Ryan Davis.

@sora_thekey: Wow dude, you look a LOT like my brother did when he was in his late teens. Like seriously, I'm kinda freaked out right now.

Does the Whiskey Media now have a fulltime bartender? Looks like a fun office to work in, though it looks like they're always drinking. I guess Whiskey Media needs to live up to it's name.


I bet the local cab company has set up a dispatch next door. Or at the least keeps a line of cabs parked outside, hotel style.
