100 cups of tea

Another change in the scenery

Millie's Deli closed on Friday for renovations. The current owners have been in that spot for 20 years and decided it was a time to update. This place is across the street from my studio and I often run in for a quick snack during the afternoon when my energy starts to lag. When I heard that there would be changes to the space, I offered to do a painting to capture, yet again, a little bit of the history of the neighborhood. Last week I dropped off the painting as promised and there was instant delight on the faces of the folks working there. I asked if I would be treated to a cup of tea upon the re-opening sometime in March and the owner shouted out loud for all to hear, "100 cups of tea!" Sounds like a good deal to me.
