I had the good fortune to meet BillyKirk’s Chris and Kirk Bray shortly before they wrote an entry for my on-going series, The Things My Father Taught Me.

Since that time, I have made a point to stay in touch with them getting together on my trips to New York City where time and place allowed, and as I said upon first meeting, you’ll never meet two nicer guys. Earlier this year, I brought them a bottle of Basil Hayden’s, and we hung out in their Jersey City office space. Chris ran around like Willy Wonka in his chocolate factory, and Kirk spoke poetically about art and commerce, and we all raised a glass together. You can read all about our experience with Whiskey. Among Other Things…. on Basil Hayden’s blog.

And after you’ve done that, head over to Flickr for a behind-the-scenes look at their space.
