Too excited to even take out the candles.
Get in there!
1 to 4 pints of ice cream on the counter = normal day at the office. 5 is a party.
Happy Birthday, Robyn!
Robyn's birthday isn't until next week, but she'll be out of town, so we threw her a surprise ice cream party. This is Robyn's surprised face.
Here's a sign we spotted in the window of nearby Panda Dumpling House. Oh, those tricksters. (Alas, the dumplings aren't very good.)
WATERMELON, OH GOD YES!
We love red meat. ...Watermelon.
Here's something that happens almost every day: sandwich tasting. Ben slices as intern Dana digs in.
Where there's an ice cream shipment, there's dry ice.
Sam and Ben brought us snacks. One of the best kinds of snacks. Mozzarella and focaccia from DiPalo's, our favorite Italian market in the neighborhood. Sam, we have trained you well.
Rooftop photo studio
One problem with our otherwise nice office is that it lacks natural sunlight, big time. So sometimes we take food out the back door that leads outside to a roof for a quick photo shoot. Ah, the sound of air vents, the sight of laundry hanging out to dry.
Sam has returned
Summer intern Sam recently ended his internship with us, but he just can't stay away. THUS IS THE PULL OF SERIOUS EATS.
Or he stopped by because he just happened to be in the neighborhood on a Chinatown/Little Italy food crawl with his older brother, Ben. ...Well. We'll just tell ourselves that he misses us a ton.
