Former Manhattan Fruitier staffer Adam Suerte was the featured artist in the inaugural issue of The Brooklyn Spectator (May 2011). Adam worked at MF in the early 1990s in his first job out of RISD. He later founded Brooklyn Tattoo, NYC’s acclaimed artist-centric tattoo shop on Smith Street in BK. We are big fans.
We had our annual holiday party last night at Resto, our friendly Belgian/pork restaurant next door. In the run up to the holiday crush, drinks were drunk, bellies were filled with an amazing roasted suckling pig & condiments, stories were shared and good feelings abounded. BTW Happy 10th anniversary to Sarah. Double BTW No pics from party to protect everyone’s reputation.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has designated today Oct. 20 “Spirit Day” and are asking Americans to wear purple to show their efforts to support the end of anti-gay bullying.
Sarah and Matteo reviewing numbers for pre-holiday dried fruit production. Matteo starts production in BK warehouse this week.
Sarah was busy a few months ago putting up some home brew – vodka, rhubarb, rosemary and sugar. Today we tasted it and we didn’t go blind or crazy. I’d call that a victory. Flavor wise, I think we all agreed that some cough syrups taste better. But you have to love the kick and the fact that it burns a hole through a paper cup.
