We pick a (ridiculous, but fun!) name

Ali Grimaldi @aligrim

Two points on us:

  • We really only have time after work, so we'd hang out at our favorite bar and brainstorm long term product roadmap vs realistic MVP, user stories, "write" our next article, etc.

  • We are notorious for ridiculous ideas (re: all work projects we jokingly name...then it seriously catches on ).

With these things in mind in mind, it's no surprise that while working one night, we picked a name for our project based off of a hilarious drink name (a sour beer, which Ali loves and Tzeying hates).

Thus, BelliniSlushie (and it's twitter account) were born that night.
