Here’s John Hale behind the counter at Diner. He’s in charge of music at Roman’s, Reynard, Diner, Marlow & Sons, and Achilles Heel — and today he’s wearing the new Marlow & Sons cooktek tee. Check out the t-shirt here, and read John’s story about instrumental guitar music in Diner Journal Issue 28…best one yet, coming soon!
We’re excited to tell you about a “tote that gives back.” Food52 and NY based handbag designer, MZ Wallace have collaborated to design a sleek & durable Farmers Market tote bag. Made of Bedford Nylon with leather handles and detailing, the tote can hold up to 70 lbs. For every bag sold ($365), $50 will go straight to the Edible Schoolyard Project, an organization bringing edible education programs and hands-on gardening experience to schoolchildren K-12. You can pre-order today and receive your tote in November – a perfect holiday gift for anyone or yourself.
We visited Brooklyn based artists Marley Freeman and Ted McGrath in their Greenpoint studios this week. Though vastly different in style and energy, we were completely inspired by both. One word that came to mind again and again: satisfying. You will find their work in Diner Journal Issue 28: The Music Issue! Thanks a lot Marley and Ted!
