One hundred people!  

You may have noticed a trend lately, where I’ve been posting spotlights about women only.  That is because it’s March!  Women’s history month!  

I figured I might as well post an abundance of women’s stories to coincide with Women’s History Month.  

But who’s this guy?  

He’s most certainly not a lady, though he does happen to be going through life with a beautiful woman named Maelyn, also known as number seventy-nine.

When I took Dane’s picture, he politely requested “dibs” on number one hundred.

How could I say no to this face?

He might look a bit bashful, but I’m pretty sure he’s excited.  He’s just hiding it.

I used to see Dane at my elementary school, back in the 90s.  He was smaller then and he had less hair, both on his head and on his face.  I remember thinking he was quiet.  And that’s pretty much all I remember.

But I’ve heard stuff, you know?  Like, Dane is a lifelong martial arts student and a fantastic musician.  

He was a chef at Madhouse for about eight years and then, with his partner, branched out into restaurant ownership.  

Oh yeah.  You know the place:

Such a great atmosphere in there, with delicious food and personable staff.  It can get a bit loud (for my old ears) but that is definitely a testament to its popularity.

I’ve been told by many that Dane has a great business mind and is fair to his employees.  

The beautiful and artistic front of the building leads way to a lovely interior.  The Foundry, much like its owner, isn’t just beautiful on the outside: outer beauty is a front for the true goodness that is held within.  

Seven years and counting for this Port Arthur classic.  Here’s to many more!

And one more thing…

Dude is rockin a man-bun.  I’m both impressed and bitterly jealous.

Thank you Dane!  

One hundred!
