Jahn’s Ice Cream Parlor

I spoke with my Dad the other day. He recalled the afternoons we'd spent at Jahn's Ice Cream Parlor in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

Computers Art & Crepes for Dessert

It was a very busy and yes, stressful week. Returning to work after being out sick for three weeks made me feel like it was my very first day again.

New staff, no room, and everyone trying to make … Continue reading Computers Art & Crepes for Dessert
