Way to Branch Out, Vita Coco

I’m not a big fan of coconut water, so I was leery when someone gave me a free sample of this on my walk to work. Surprisingly, it was really tasty. A few weeks later, I noticed they also sell a lemonade version.

Ranee’s Last Day

September 24th, 2014 · No Comments


Monday was Ranee’s last day at work. On Tuesday morning she moved to San Francisco. So sad that I won’t see her every day any more, but so happy for her new adventure! For lunch on Monday a group of us went to the Cultural Center to check out the art exhibits.


Of note were CHGO DSGN, an exhibit of local artists. Ranee’s husband Greg worked on the Divvy branding and launch and there was a cool presentation of the work. Also, I spotted some things by Martin Kastner, the designer and sculptor of Alinea’s (and Next and all of those) custom service items. I’ve met him before and I’ve been to Alinea twice, so cool to see.




Even better I was surprised to see an exhibit of Hebru Brantley‘s work. I immediately recognized it from murals I’ve seen around the city. Super crushing on his work!

Thanks to Ranee for the fun lunch. And thanks for being a great friend! We bonded a few years ago when we were both traveling to Boston a ton for work and remained friends since. I’ll miss you, but see you soon!t

I pass by a lot of guys making music on my commute back and forth across Randolph Street each day. Not to mention the changing array of musicians who are in my train stop daily.
