Happy Birthday Cafe Grumpy!

It was three years ago that Cafe Grumpy opened its doors to the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, and two years ago since it spread to Chelsea in Manhattan. I can’t believe it’s been so long.. Congratulations to Chris and Caroline the proud parents of these great cafes, and thank you both for taking a chance and hiring me so many years ago!

Here’s an oldie but goodie: This is a photo from the grand opening party of the Chelsea location, look at us babies. I was working for Grumpy, Chris was working for Gimme!, and Erin Meister was working for Joe the Art of Coffee back then. This was also back before any of us were married, or planning to be.. 🙂mlissa-chris-and-meister

Dear Melissa,

Tool!?!? Speak for yourself. I look AWESOME.

Seriously though… thanks for posting these. Wayback machine. But more importantly, Hooray Engagement! I just heard, somehow. I’m-a happy for you-a!

Hope I see you guys soon! Kiss Chris on the stubble for me.
