My son wants me to grow a beard. I’m four days in. We’ll give it a week.
Want. To. Shave. So. Bad.
My friend Malcolm has a podcast. He invited me to talk transition from two decades as a local TV news anchor/reporter to restaurant group owner/entrepreneur. On the one year anniversary of taking that leap I agreed. One caveat. I also discovered in this interview that I’m terrible at speaking in soundbites. (10 - 33:30)
A first look at our DRY 85 video premiere. I actually didn’t want to be in this spot. We shot it in hopes the natural sounds and music would carry the message. In the end we decided the narrative was too important to leave viewers guessing. I’m proud of our team and it’s my job to share their hard work with as many people as possible. Also, I probably came off a little more “news guy-ish” than I would have hoped. Old habits die hard, apparently.
Our first spot for DRY 85. We shot three vignettes and one full length promotional video. This one focuses on our gourmet comfort food menu. The other videos to follow.
Dayamn. If you see it get it. $150 nose and taste for $60ish retail.
Sometimes a rusted 1930s Pepco power plant work table is exactly what your dining room needs. Power wash and a poly coating … good as new.
All moved in. My work here is done.
That moment when you’re cleaning house and remember the year long, six figure fight to fire an old agent. Choose carefully, young TV types.
Moving Day. New Beginnings.
