Local Girl We Love, and Where to Meet Her
This is Melanie. She's a manager at Marlowe, where you can usually find her running things (like a BOSS) at lunch and, if you're lucky, a couple dinner shifts. Why we love her: 1) She's super nice and someone to know at a great restaurant, 2) She can jump rope with her arms, 3) She's the rad/rare combo of Jewish/Korean, 4) Her favorite Spice Girl is Scary Spice (Melanie, duh), and 5) In a fight between Paul Bunyan and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man: "Marshmallow Man wins, clearly, unless Paul has his blue ox, in which case, it's a toss up."
