The latest from Cree McCree, market maven, nutria designer and flea market queen:
The Great Blue Nile Costume Bust ain't over yet, kids! A sheriff showed up at my door this morning with a summons to appear in Municipal Court on May 3 as a witness at the trial of Blue Nile bartender Oliver "Ollie" Stevenson, who was just doing his job when the bust occurred. He's being charged with "selling clothes w/o a license" (he was only selling drinks) and with "not having a manager on the premises" (manager Jesse Paige was just steps away outside being issued his own summons.) This is totally bogus. Ollie shouldn't have to be a fall guy, and Jesse and I shouldn't have to go to court smack dab in the middle of Jazz Fest (Blue Nile's busiest week).Please help spread the word!!!
