Check it out!
My work is doing a project all on rum! Of course I said I would post this to Tiki Central cause you guys must know these types in NYC, Chicago and SF. They are also looking for people who HATE rum! Here is the shout out!
International Design Firm IDEO (www.ideo.com) is currently conducting in-home interviews on the topic of ALCOHOL with 21 - 40 year olds. We are seeking everything from novices to experts on this topic. All interviews will take place in the Manhattan area on Thursday December 4th – Saturday December 6th (they will also be going to SF and Chicago the following week). You must have an active FACEBOOK page to take part in this study. Participants will be compensated $100 per hour. Typical interviews last 1 hour.
