I just woke up and already got my first christmas present! I became a few notifications from friends of Le Lion that Robert Hess just published a new drinks video on Small Screen Network.
Wow. It is a great feeling to see a person I look up to since +10 years and learned so much from making your drink, calling it a modern classic and finally loving it ...
Thanks Robert ! Will be hard for Santa to beat you.
Mario Kappes will leave Le Lion • Bar de Paris and starts to work as a Brand Ambassador for BORCO MARKENIMPORT
And so, at one point this year, I kind of forced Mario to take the BORCO offer at least serious and try to negotiate hard to see whats possible. And Mario did.What I really like about this is that BORCO was not looking for someone to do a job. They just wanted Mario not some Brand Ambassador. Like so often, Mario set a new Milestone in our industry - And I am very happy to see that he will now work for BORCO. One of the most integer family run businesses in our whole industry. Old skoll Hamburg style - outstanding company - best possible choice Mario, if you ask me!I guess Mario will keep setting milestones. Mario has so much potential and parts of it, he never could play out behind our little bar.
Dear Mario,it is time to conquer the World - you deserve it!Thank you very much for the last 8 years at Le Lion. Without your work, our little bar would not be what it is for us today. I have never meet someone in my whole time tending bar like you. No one more passioned, more loyal, more human. I am really curious to see, what will happen in the future. I know you will kill it. And, as I told you yesterday, a nice side effect of all this: We will have more time to go out for drinks again - and I promise we will do!Standing Ovations for you my friend! And thanks for all the good time Mario.Cheers!Joerg
