In this episode, I take plenty of time to wax nostalgic about the good ole days with Joshua Miranda, owner of both Blyth and Burrows and Via Vecchia in Portland, Maine. His work in the restaurant, night club, and hospitality business spans decades and has found him in New York City, Miami, and then finally back in Portland. Let’s just say he was knee-deep in the game back when sporty wristbands were fashionable behind the bar.
We talk about our shared experiences, mine being significantly dumber, working in night clubs, as well as the kind of restaurants we loved growing up (with an emphasis on Portland, obviously). We examine the ill-fated Portland Public Market, what went wrong, what went right, and the benefits of getting paid in wine. Did you know that the bar in Cocktail is based on a TGI Fridays? Well, we did. We sure did.
Lastly, I provide one of my top tips to save money.
