Georgetown University business majors Jonathan Neman, Nic Jammet, and Nathaniel Ru stated they couldn’t find a healthy or inexpensive place to eat near campus. So they started an eatery opening up shop in a Lilliputian M Street NW space opposite the apartment Neman shared with Ru.
However the start of Sweetgreen wasn’t smooth sailing. The tiny store didn’t have plumbing or electricity; its owner didn’t want to rent it to neophytes. But the guys, having decided to forego the investment banking jobs that many of their classmates had snagged, were determined. “I called every day for weeks,” Neman says. Opening up just ahead of the salad-and-tart-yogurt trends, they’ve since expanded to nine restaurants in three states and the District. Regularly logging 15-hour days, they plan to open eight more locations in the next year.
Family connections helped the trio raise start-up funds from investors including Joe Bastianich, the business partner of celebrity chef Mario Batali. Peter Hapstak, the architect behind Brasserie Beck and dozens of other hip D.C. restaurants, won awards for his eco-friendly design of Sweetgreen’s first store.
“Over time, this whole region and probably the whole country will know about Sweetgreen and Sweetlife,” Goldman says. It’s hard not to agree: After nine hours at the show, I realize I haven’t gone 30 seconds all day without seeing one of those two words.
“Next year, we’re going even bigger,” Neman says.

A blog called “A Journey with Books” recently post a review of House Trap. Besides reading the actual review at that site you should also check it out in general: http://debasishray19.blogspot.in/ . Thanks again Debasish Ray Mohapatra for the post.
WARNING:- This review has a major spoiler and reveal the twist of House Trap.
The story started with a cool and chill night. Everyone was preparing themselves for the upcoming Christmas. A little boy, just 10 years old, named Nicolas was staring at the sky and imagining about those gifts he’d be going to get for this Christmas. But all of a sudden mishap happened in his house that night. Nicolas found both of his parents murdered inside the house.
After 30 years, the same scenario happened again. But this time it was about Rachel who went to Alicia’s house as a tutor and had to spend a night there which was against her decision. Alicia’s father was the inventor of house trap and a well renowned person for his invention. But that night unfortunately, Alicia’s parents were absent inside the house. Two intruders, one of them was Jay Alicia’s friend and another one was Scott entered to house for some money. They both killed Alicia and tried to kill Rachel and Alicia’s brother Nathan and little sister Amy.
But the story looked most interesting, when you will get to know that Alicia’s father was no other than Nicolas, a person who went through these incidents at his tender age and invented house trap for the safety purpose. Now his invention worked as curse for his family. As the house trap was activated no one was able to come outside of that house including murderers and innocent kids. And after finishing the story I am sure that the whole drama was with full of suspense and actions and also thrilled you.
For me: What I liked about this story was finally Rachel learnt a lesson about life, freedom and realized that family & friends are much more important than just a good college and a degree.
The story was well plotted just like sequences of picture frames and it was smooth and a well thrilled story. I enjoyed it.
Don’t forget to keep checking this blog for any further news on the sequel to House Trap titled Fiery Trap. Take care and I hope you come here again soon:) House Trap is available on amazon, barnes and noble, kobo, sony, and smashwords.

Lee Rhodes was just 32 when she was diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer, a nightmare for anyone but a particularly grim diagnosis for a mother of three small children. After a long, hard battle and many rounds of grueling chemotherapy, Rhodes not only beat cancer but came up with a dream of helping other cancer patients.
The dream began from Rhodes’ sick bed, moved to the garage of her Seattle home and has since evolved into a successful business called glassybaby.
A truly unique and inspiring enterprise, glassybaby not only employs scores of artisans in Seattle — over 50 glassblowers at last count — but also gives a big portion of its revenue to cancer-related charities, over $850,000 and counting.
