Jennifer Gaydeski is the Co-Founder and Editor of Savor & Sip Magazine, a new food and beverage publication in Las Vegas, focusing on the local scene and telling the stories behind an industry that defines Vegas culture. Jennifer has been in the food and beverage industry for over 15 years and moved to Las Vegas in 2008 to run a local wine bar and restaurant, which became a local gathering place for food, wine, live music and local art. Since 2009, Jennifer has been writing a wine column for a national publication and spending much of her free time working on her blog and social marketing endeavors. 2001 finally presented the opportunity to launch her own business and SLJ Media LLC and Savor & Sip Magazine were born. Jennifer’s goal is to use this publication to showcase local businesses and provide a resource for locals to celebrate the places where they work and play in Las Vegas.
Why am I a Thirsty Girl?I was born into a family that loves life…traveling, eating, drinking, loving and laughing along the way. I have always been thirsty for adventure and new experiences and have had the privilege of being able to live and work all over the country. After graduating from performing arts school, I worked on a showboat in Ohio, toured with a children’s theater company, and performed and directed at several theaters in Atlanta. Along the way I bartended and waited tables and eventually began managing restaurants and exploring my passion for food, wine and people. As far as I am concerned, the journey never ends, and I am determined to continue expanding my knowledge and fueling my passions. Chances are I will be doing this with a glass of wine in one hand and a fork in the other.
