In this week’s installment of the Original Retro Brand’s “5 Questions with….” interview, we’ve decided to start a new tradition. Up until now, we’ve been interviewing famous athletes, musicians & radio/TV personalities, who all share a common love of Original Retro Brand apparel. From now on, in addition to our celebrity interviews, we’ll be talking with our hard-working customers to find out more about what they do for a living, the teams they like, and why they love the Original Retro Brand too. Our first customer is Dawn Lewis, originally from Lansing, Michigan. Dawn is a full time bartender who now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. She is a self-professed Michigan State Spartans & Detroit Red Wings sports nut. Recently I caught up with her at Smith’s Olde Bar, her place of business, to chat….
Andy: I know you’re all about the Spartans and the Red Wings. Are you more of a die-hard for the Spartans or the Red Wings, and why?
Dawn: RED WINGS!!! I LOVE hockey and the toughness of it. I love the fights and how intense it can be. However, I do love to yell GO GREEN-GO WHITE too!!
Dawn: No, I was always snowboarding with boys in the winter though. I wasn’t on the ski team or anything like that.
Andy: You’re quite the experienced mixologist. Do you have a specialty drink all of your own?
Dawn: Well, my drink of choice is a shot of Stolichnaya chilled with a splash of cranberry, but I am always happy to make the customer some sort of unusual libation!
Andy: Do you catch alot of grief from your clientele when you rock your Original Retro Brand Mowtown gear behind the stick?
Dawn: YES!!! But I don’t let them phase me….I’m a very loyal DETROIT fan!!!
Andy: You’ve been a big fan of Original Retro Brand apparel for years. What is it that you love so much about the gear?
Dawn: The FEEL of the clothes. All of my shirts are SO SOFT, and there is always something new every season for me to get.
If you like the shirts Dawn is wearing, just click over the photos to purchase from the Original Retro Brand website. I also told Dawn I would list some websites near and dear to her, so please check em’ out!
