"Like most of my generation, I was brought up on the saying “Satan finds some mischief still for idle hands to do.” Being a highly virtuous child, I believed all that I was told and acquired a conscience which has kept me working hard down to the present moment. But although my conscience has controlled my actions, my opinions have undergone a revolution. I think that there is far too much work done in the world, that immense harm is caused by the belief that work is virtuous, and that what needs to be preached in modern industrial countries is quite different from what always has been preached".
In 2017 Threes had the welcome opportunity to open a second bar in Greenpoint. While the location and the aesthetics are different, the ethos is not. They hope to be the place where friends can come together, and strangers can become friends. Or, as we might say, come for the Constant Disappointment IPA, stay for the good times. Threes will be offering $1 off beers for Olios!
Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
