After spending months making Christmas for Macy’s, Dan decided to take a turn at tearing it down. He told me about one of his more recent gigs. He was called in at the last minute to do carpentry for a pop-up. Their arrangements had fallen through and they needed 13 tables to be made at the last minute. They already had the table top material, some repurposed wood, which after a trip to Home Depot, Dan used to slap the tables together with. The place was an anti-holiday bar, called Jingle Hell’s and was all about protesting the seasonal cheer. Located in the East Village, by design, it only lasted a week. The décor included eight tiny “reindeer” trophies mounted on the wall, including one with a very red nose and entertainment featured a very bad Santa. You get the idea.
