1NTERRUPT was quite literally conceived, created, and is operated from our dining room, our kitchen, from various hotel rooms and airport lounges… and sometimes our patio, when we seize upon the rare occurrences of nice weather in New England. It is very much a labor of love and something we just have a lot of fun doing.
