LA's Emily J. Synder

Posted by Natology Views: 7,777
Los Angeles artist and friend Emily J Snyder gave me LIFE with her Jerome Rousseau collaboration. Each pair is custom and handmade by Snyder with 7000+ beads including coral, freshwater pearls, vintage Czech crystals and a whole lot of love. Totally worth more than the $6,500 price tag. Wearable sculpture and a dream come true in the form of a shoe that fits like a glove...and shines like the sun.

Butcher Shop in Ocean Drive

Posted by TheButcherShop Views: 8,500

A canopy of globe lights strung over communal tables beckon wanderers into The Butcher Shop, a beer garden-grill hybrid hidden on a nondescript street in Wynwood. On the patio, bartenders sling craft brews, shots of flavored moonshine, and martinis ornamented with olives stuffed in-house. Inside the former warehouse space, a 24-foot meat case showcases the stuff of a carnivore’s dream: duck sausage, lamb and feta burgers, USDA Prime Black Angus beef, and mettwurst the German employees of Fred Niznik fondly call “the closest thing to home.”

What It Takes to Open a Brewery

Posted by biscaynebaybrewing Views: 8,147
With more than 2,700 breweries currently operating in the U.S. and the craft beer industry enjoying a steady growth rate, there's no doubt why the business of producing beer is gaining unprecedented momentum -- expanding faster than any other time since prohibition ended. 

There was a 15% increase in new breweries from 2012 to 2013 alone and 2014 looks like it will top those numbers! Great news for all the beer drinkers - as availability and selection border on gluttonous. But planning and starting a brewery is far from quick and easy and definitely not for the casual businessperson, faint of heart, impatient or corner-cutter. The industrial brewery environment requires skills and procedures that come from safe brewing experience and is an unforgiving place for the inexperienced. 

Process of opening a brewery, some of what it takes to go from brooding to brewing...
That said, love of beer alone will not take a brewer or brewery very far - because going from grain to glass is a multi-dimensional undertaking requiring passion, experience, and sweat. Beyond the initial investment expenses and acquisition of equipment brewhouse, fermenters, kegs, barrels, space - there is the lengthy, tedious and careful process of state and federal permitting. Then readying the facility is where the focus moves to drains, flooring, and coolers.
Picking and getting the right location, equipment, and recipes can have lasting repercussions making or breaking the brewery when it comes time to expand. Recipe research and formulation selecting beers for our portfolio ñ is also an area where we dedicate a huge amount of time and energy. Opening a brewery is as exciting as it is scary. Combining different malts, hops and yeast to create unique beers is what gets us going, and the pint at the end of the tunnel we're working toward is bringing our creations to the masses.

Don't sink my boat.

Robin Williams, Disney and a Late Picasso. 
Robin Williams was only paid $75,000 to do the voice work in the 1992 film Aladdin Under the condition his voice would not be used in advertising to sell products for the movie. 

When the film broke $200 million at the box office, Disney broke their promise to Williams.

Robin Williams was very upset with Disney. A few years later Disney to make good gave Williams a late Picasso painting (not the one in the photo) 

Williams never fully forgave Disney.
