Taking chances has heightened risks and equal rewards, and all of our guests banked on their respective concepts.  So, this week we’re joined by entrepreneurs who’ve crossed career paths – and the globe – to establish their business ventures!
This week, you’ll hear from the owners of Pennsylvania’s CraveWell Cafe, Managing Partner of Con Murphy’s Irish Pub, and the Owner of Negus Winery!
We began the episode with Morgan and Deb Manchester who own CraveWell Cafe in Pennsylvania.  The husband and wife partners began their path to a fast-casual healthy concept after Deb had a medical scare.  The duo decided that they didn’t want Deb going back to work for someone else, and they wanted to focus on healthy food options–something they found was lacking when they were out and looking for a quick bite to eat.  Now, they’ve just celebrated their 5-year anniversary of owning CraveWell Cafe and are excited to share their healthy smoothies, sandwiches, cold-pressed juices, and more with all of you!
Liam Kelly is no stranger to hard work, and even began helping out a family member’s business at the age of 8. Later on in life, he found himself drawn into the culinary world when Ireland competed in the 2010 world cup and was hooked.  So, in the late 90’s he made the decision to move to the states and was offered a job inside a Manhattan bar. Soon after, he became a managing partner of the place and helped to open Tir-Na-Nog, a well-known Irish Pub & Restaurant chain.  After that, he took a break and worked in Australia on boats…but eventually was drawn back to the states with a desire to open his own place in Philadelphia.  Today, Liam is the Managing Partner of Con Murphy’s Irish Pub in Philadelphia, Con Murphy’s Ocean Bar & Grill in Florida, and he is a buyer for Aylesworth’s Fish and Bait, Inc.
There’s some sweet rewards when you stay tuned for our last guest, Gize Negussie, who owns and operates Negus Winery which is located in Alexandria, VA.  Why is this such a sweet reward?  Gize is the first Ethiopian Honey Wine maker in the US, with strong familial bonds.  The recipe for his signature blend was the one he was raised on.  According to Gize, Tej (the honey wine, which is similar to mead) is always on the table when there’s an occasion to celebrate.  The signature wine also happens to be his mother’s recipe but modernized to meet the needs of US regulations, and stamped with his mother’s approval.  Gize also offers other varieties of wine inside his tasting room, as well as specific varieties available to ship nationwide, so if you want to sip on something originally created for royalty–check out Negus Winery online or in-person!

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
