Closing Early Today for a Special Anniversary

November 1st, 2010 · 1:14 pm - LoxPopuli

Today Russ & Daughters will be closing early at 5:30 p.m. for a very special celebration. We will be honoring Herman Vargas on the occasion of his 30 years at Russ & Daughters. Herman started in the store as a 17-year-old peeling onions in the kitchen, and over the years has gone on to become the store’s long-standing manager, right hand man to three generations of the Russ family, friend and go-to-guy for countless customers, and he was immortalized as “Herman the Artistic Slicer” in Calvin Trillin‘s book, Tepper Isn’t Going Out.  Russ & Daughters would not be what it is today without Herman.

We wish we could invite everyone to tonight’s event.  Look for photos and recaps on the blog soon!
