Today I wanted to share the most important person in the GCT project (plus all of our other ventures) and that is the "blackjack dealer" and my partner Douglas.
Douglas is the one who works tirelessly on the finances. As you can imagine it's not the most fun and for the most part it's THE most stressful piece of the pie. Douglas works very, very hard to make sure Noodle and I, along with all of our employees and vendors are taken care of. It's been a very difficult time lately and he has done a fantastic job juggling everything to ensure a smooth opening of GCT.
The picture is my two guys relaxing in Mexico last year. Please raise a big 'ol margarita glass to Douglas... he is the best!

Good news, kinda... We passed the ceiling inspection so it can be enclosed next week but (and here comes a big NYC but), in order to have a usable closet it's going to cost another 3200$. This closet is the size of a double door refrigerator. Why so much you ask? Well, it has to have it's own sprinkler head and emergency lighting system.
Is it worth it?
I hear all the time "people don't use journals anymore", well I am here to tell you that's not true. Cursive sells more journals than I ever would of thought possible. Everything from these lovely, limited edition, scene printed beauties to crackled leather from England. I believe all creative people carry a journal in one form or another. I do not go anywhere with out mine and sometimes I have 2 or 3 going at the same time. GCT will be well stocked on journlas!

We visited our cabinet maker yesterday, he is conveniently located in our building, to check in on the custom fixtures. This is a 3'x5' table with storage on both sides, when you have limited space as we all do in NYC you have to use ever available square inch. The venetian is going over this table.
