Farewell, Sam Mason. Hello, Tailor

Its time we finally admitted it: Our winding journey with Sam Mason has come to an end. Construction crews told a Grub Street staffer that the Tailor people plan for an August 6 opening. There might be some truth to this: The dates not all that far off from the official mid-August projection we were recently given, and frankly, wed sooner believe the laborers than publicists nervous over a massively hyped opening day. And so, we present this album of the magical moments we shared with Mason as he chased the dream of Tailor. If nothing else, well have the memories.
