Thank you to John Wiley & Sons for loving and supporting this idea.
Anthony kindly let us film at Bistango NYC and the General Manager, Sam, was our server. Say "Hi!" Next time you go in. Tell them I sent you.

The video production crew was Digital Zen. The director/producer was Heidi Bayer, Bklynallergymom.
