TSAI House pictures, OCH Market on Sunday

We have pictures from our TSAI House event last Sunday in the Marigny here. We also recently agreed to be the primary food vendor at the OCH Art Market on the second Saturday of every month from now through the end of 2012, so please visit us there starting this Saturday to eat our food, refresh yourself with our delicious beverages, and to see the improvements being made to both the space we’re working out of as well as to OC Haley Boulevard as a whole. The corridor has come a long way in just the last couple of years, and we’re excited to be a part of it.
