When four friends discovered a mobile bar while traveling, they thought, “Why doesn’t Detroit have one of these?” So began the quest of Lauryn Laszczak and Kim Warner (and their husbands) to find a suitable vehicle for their venture. The end product was “The Llama,” a mobile bar that can be booked for events. Lauryn and Kim stop by to tell Danialle their story — and serve delicious cocktails.
Next, Jen Guarino, the former vice president of manufacturing for Shinola stops by. She is now the president of ISAIC, Detroit’s Industrial Sewing and Innovation Center. ISAIC will be located inside Carhartt, and it will teach Detroiters sewing skills, emerging technologies in the fashion industry and offer fair and equitable job opportunities. It’s the latest avenue to help community members in need to get back on their feet.
