Welcoming a New Face Behind the Bar

Thai Elephant This Week’s FTF, Music by Autumn Jones Band; Saturday’s Act is Matt Mattheiss Duo
Small Business Spotlight: Seven Layer Studio

If you frequent the bar at Pickett’s, you may have noticed something new just inside that front corner. It’s a photo of Jim Pickett, an original partner in Pickett’s, who passed away July 2018. While we all wish he were here in the flesh, Jim’s vision and energy are very much alive in who we are as a neighborhood bar and how we continue to evolve. Thanks to a beautifully framed photo of Jim, gifted to Pickett’s by his best friend, his smiling face is finally behind the bar where it belongs.

Speaking of friends … when it comes to outdoor dining, the weather can be our best friend, or kind of a lousy friend, and let’s face it: this last week hasn’t been our friend’s finest moment. While we had to pull the plug on last week’s FTF, folks persevered and showed up anyway with friends and family, inside and out. Regardless, we don’t give up on our friends, right? Looking forward to authentic Thai cuisine from FTF favorite Thai Elephant at this week’s Food Truck Friday, along with the spectacular Autumn Jones Band. The much-loved Pickett’s regular Matt Mattheiss Duo is up on Saturday.

This week’s small business spotlight is 7 Layer Studio. You may not know them by name, but if you’ve ever admired our brand identity — logo, tee shirts, frites papers, signage — it’s their work that got your attention. In addition to doing the branding and design work for Pickett’s, they count among their clients other successful local businesses, including Liv Breads and Wildly Floral, and many others.
