Originally from Hammond, Louisiana, about 30 minutes North of New Orleans, Cole Just acquired his love of good food, drinks, and music. Cole currently lives in Atlanta and works at Old Forth Distillery. He was brought on board to collaborate on Locker Club, which focuses on classic cocktails made only with spirits made in house. He has also served as Beverage Director at Bellina Alimentari, The Cockentrice, and Last Word.
David “Doodleslice” Cohen is an artist and ‘brand therapist’ who has exhibited his work in galleries in New York, Washington DC, New Jersey, Baltimore and Atlanta. He received his MFA in Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art and was selected as the Official Doodler for the TEDxPeachtree conference in 2011. “I call (my) drawings doodles, but despite that silly sounding name I’m very serious about this as a form of expression. I try my best to pour my heart and soul into these small works - to fill them with love and joy and smiles. Why? Because I am inclined to think that those simple things, love, joy and smiles, are very important things indeed. People, animals and many, many birds all meander happily through my doodles. They dance, they hug, they float and they fly. They soar in spaceships and share quotes and thoughts meant to inspire kindness, wonder, personal empowerment and empathy. Each plays their part in communicating my fundamental outlook: that despite a world of threats, ambiguity and danger, there is always a place for whimsy, joy, hope and love.”
