We spent an even larger sum of money yesterday. Noooo... well, yes. Lawyers aren't the only people who require engagement letters with retainer deposits. We officially teamed up with Destree Design Architects yesterday. Despite working on highly-stylized places like Samba and Fromagination, the folks at Destree are very grounded and approachable. Helping us evaluate locations and design our facility won't be as lucrative as some of their other projects, but they're cool with that.
I spent the last day of 2008 doing something I love: bottling a batch of Belgian Pumpkin Ale. Bottling is ok on a homebrew scale. There, I'm not a hypocrite.
