Fab is about connecting, sharing and learning about the business of food and beverage. It’s about moving forward, standing up for yourself, being brave, baller and badass. It’s about women supporting women in their life goals. Fab’s a veritable feast for the senses and soul.
In 2017, its inaugural year, Fab Workshop brought more than 230 women from all areas of hospitality to Charleston, South Carolina. Over the course of the two-day workshop, attendees from New York, Chicago, Nashville, Charlotte, Atlanta, Los Angeles and more learned from, shared, laughed, and connected with 30 nationally known movers and shakers in the hospitality world.

Native New Yorker and Charleston resident Randi Weinstein has worked in and around the hospitality industry her whole life. As Director of Events for the Charleston Wine + Food Festival for seven years, she helped elevate Charleston’s growing food and beverage scene.
Randi founded her next gig, Bad Bitches, with two food and beverage pros with a mission to showcase women's rise, decade by decade, from the home kitchen to the hospitality industry. Through seven themed dining events, Bad Bitches raised more than $55,000 in scholarship money to help women in the hospitality industry advance in their chosen careers. The success of Bad Bitches deepened Randi’s passion for educating and empowering women in hospitality – and forged the path for the creation of Fab Workshop, which kicked oﬀ in June 2017.
Hope began her career in hospitality working on a Dude Ranch in Colorado while in college. Since then, she has worked in restaurants, on farms, in industrial bakeries, for the nonproﬁt Slow Food and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Tarrytown, NY. She relocated from New York to Charleston and became Randi’s partner in crime/communications lead for Fab in 2017. In addition to Fab, Hope also works part time at Le Farfalle in downtown Charleston. She plans to one day open a restaurant of her own with her chef husband.
