Brad and Johanna met 12 years ago through mutual friends. After 10 years of marriage they have decided to become partners in business as well. Brad is a native Omahan and graduated from the Univeristy of NE-Omaha with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. After college, Brad worked at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. It was after 9/11 that he worked in restaurants full time. It was then that Brad realized that this is the industry for him. He has worked at restaurants in Omaha since 2001 including V. Mertz and more recently as the General Manager of Spencer’s for Steaks and Chops until October of 2011. Along with wife Johanna, Brad can always be found on the floor at Lot 2. Johanna was raised on Camano Island in Washington and moved to Omaha in 1998. She began her career in the restaurant industry at a very young age and has never left it. Prior to Lot 2, Johanna held an 11 year position at M’s Pub, the first two years as a host, server, bartender and the remaining nine as the floor manager. In June of 2011, Brad and Johanna passed the Certified Sommelier examination through the Court of Master Sommeliers. They look forward to sharing their wine suggestions with you and recently have been admiring most anything from Northern Rhone in France.
Website from the Museum of London early showing 'roemers', a type of tall drinking-glass with a cylindrical body decorated with glass 'blobs' ('prunts'), which was popular in the Low Countries and Germany; other beakers and drinking-glasses in greenish-clear glass; miscellaneous green-glass vessels, and artefacts such as linen-smoothers.
Glass of this type is often termed 'forest glass', because it was produced in rural north European glasshouses, near supplies of wood and other raw materials. One of its primary ingredients was 'potash', a substance obtained from plants such as bracken. This produced a distinctive greenish tint. Potash glass cooled rapidly, making it primarily suitable for plainer, utilitarian shapes.
The Museum has few 'roemers'. However, it has a useful collection of 16th- and 17th-century drinking-glasses, complementing those of similar date made in the 'Venetian style'. For bottles of all kinds, see the Bottles section; for pre-1500 'forest glass', see the Medieval section.

"Nothing is life counts more than the happiness we can give others, the good that we can do. This is what we must teach our children, to think of others more than they think of themselves, for it is in this way they will find the most noble satifacation of all."
