With the holidays upon us, Buzz is in a confessional mood, so here you go. We once walked into the Brick Store Pub in Decatur and ordered a Michelob Ultra. The server politely noted that they didn't stock it, and we tried ordering an Amstel Light instead. Sad but true. To their credit, none of the employees called the police.
Now here's a happier holiday Brick Store tale for you. Local artist Kathleen Plate, teaming up with business owners Harris Botnick, Geri Botnick and Joan Wasser, held a Smart Glass Jewelry trunk show the other day. Plate, known for her recycled glass jewelry, made this particular collection from Brick Store bottles and combined the event with a food drive for Decatur Emergency Assistance Ministry.
