PITCH MEETING, Sand Hill Road, Palo Alto, CA: “we believe we’re strongly positioned to be the market leader for direct to consumer cute lil’ Apple Watch sleeping bags. We’ll give them quirky names like Jasper and Thimble, offer a home try-on, and we’ll be super passive aggressive to anyone that doesn’t sign up for our dumb newsletter and coupons.”
This week: talking microwaves, lox and schmear, some grade-A flip floppin’, and as a special bonus — an avocado toast recipe from a prolific Michelin-starred chef! 👨🏻🍳.
