Meet Colleen

Hi! I’m Colleen, the Chief Storyteller here at Over Drinks. Welcome to my little slice of the internet.


I am a cocktail, foodie, and travel blogger, just starting out on my new adventures. Though this has been a passion for years, I’ve been busy in other arenas.


Believe it or not, I have nearly 25 years experience in the hospitality industry. I’ve worked in restaurants, a liquor distributor, a couple of hotels, a pie manufacturer, an adult beverage marketing agency, and a coffee roaster. I know a thing or two about food, beverage, and hospitality in general.


Prior to that, I was a musician. Classically trained in flute performance, I also play Irish flute, penny whistle, bagpipes, and the bowed psaltery. I still dabble and music still speaks to my soul, so don’t be surprised when you see musical posts pop up here and there.


Follow me on my adventures and learn about the places I visit through food, music, and more. I bring all that knowledge with me when traveling and writing.


Also,┬ámy little family is going through some huge changes. The spawn (my one and only son) is moving out on his own and making his way in the world. There will probably be posts about this every once in a while… it may be the only thing that keeps me sane! But that’s not the only big change. Hubs, our two woofs, and I are preparing for a move “cross country” from the foothills of the North Georgia mountains to wine country via a circuitous route taking us through the US. Follow the downsizing, house prepping, and general mania that comes with a move like this at our Sunrise2Sunset section of the blog.


Oh, and if you have a restaurant, bar, or hotel and are looking for some help with your marketing, hit me up! I can certainly assist with that. For collaboration, shoot me an email. Anything else, just ask!


Thanks for stopping by!
