Happy Labor Day! Since 1882, America has been taking this day off to celebrate and honor the American worker. The idea was born of a time when workers had few rights and barely a day off. The day has really evolved into a day with family, barbecues and the last real day of Summer.
We are thinking today of the American craftsmen and people who make things here in our country. As you know well, the numbers have been waning for some time as offshoring has taken the craft away and turned building things into a major profit center. We here at The Lodge have built our business on partnerships with American craftsmen, artists, and designers and we thank you for supporting their work.
So today, enjoy your day off and have a beer for us!
