Friends! Please listen to scientists. Covid-19 is extremely contagious. It is a matter of life and death. #Stayhome until this pandemic is over. Many people are still out running, biking, shopping for takeout or groceries. You can exercise at home. There are online grocers available. There are people willing to shop for seniors and high risk individuals. We have yet to #flattenthecurve. Those of you partaking in these activities are only prolonging the upswing, as many can be asymptomatic carriers of the virus. . . As a small business owner I can empathize with others in continuing to run their businesses for the sake of feeding their communities, their families, and their employees, but I urge you to think bigger. The virus won’t go away unless we stay home. . . Many are operating their businesses without proper gear: masks! Employees are taking public transit and being put at risk for the sake of a meager paycheck, just to make takeout food. Your paycheck, your business, the economy, can all be revived; your life cannot be. . . Learn from Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore. Stay home. Listen to scientists. Don’t wait for someone close to you to be infected or worse, die, for you to take these measures. They are not extreme; they are needed. . . #shutusdown #covid19

Happiest of birthdays to Dr. Larry 💜 I’ve admired some professors, athletes, chefs, friends, over the years but I continue to admire both of you the most every day. . . . You define humble, hard working, and empathy and live them more fully than anyone I know. . . . May we all have a little bit of Larry in us 💜

Today would have been the 95th birthday of Grandma Lorna. She was a mother, aunt, sister, grandmother, biochemist, watercolor artist, calligrapher, frame maker, gardener and so much more. She and grandpa met in gliding club ✈️ She was the only one willing to ride with me in the front for Splash Mountain with our arms in the air 🌊 She learned to play violin in her 80s 🎻 She drove and swam until the month she passed; she wore her medals with pride 🏅If she were here today we’d be having dinner, followed by her playing Edelweiss on piano 🎹 Her painting of a rooster 🐓 and its chicks 🐣is on our wall @gopagu watching over us 🙏🏼

2018 was full of highs and lows...awards, television filming, weddings, amazing collaborations as well as lay-offs, thefts, betrayal, sickness, death...owning a restaurant means there is never a dull moment! Thank you dear family, friends, mentors near and far, PUGS and good health that I am able to persevere, live my dream every day, feed this community, and evolve. Cheers to 2019, building an even stronger team, and growing our capabilities to serve YOU 💜🙏🏼 💪🏽 💪🏽 💪🏽 #goPAGU #PAGU #chefslead #womenchefs #foodcommunitycollaboration #chefsfeed #truth #puglife #pugrestaurant #cambridgema
