Canadian headquarters of the Bar None Group is McBride's Organic Farm in Oro Medonte, Ontario.

What an incredible year!

The first moments of 2014 were spent ringing in the year with friends at the Sand Bar in Barra de Navidad, Mexico. The last moments of 2014 were spent with some of those same friends from Barra de Navidad at a farm in Ontario, Canada. Along the way their was an epic roadtrip to visit all 50 states in one calendar year.

After a lap and a half around America, with diversions to Peru, Columbia, Mexico and Canada to break up the adventure we managed to visit 47 of the 50 states. We came across some amazing poets and poetry and were happy to share their voice within these pages. Thank you to all who have read, contributed, inspired and shared their words within the pages of the Bar None Group.

Happy New Year to:


































You are truly the Bar None Group. I am forever in your gratitude.  And now, I have to finish packing for the return home to Chicago. A new year. A new adventure. Keep those pens sharp in 2015. Salud! Cheers! Happy New Year!
