What is Mikie Squared and who is Mikie? We have nothing to do with Mile Square, nor our we "Mickey's." These are the two biggest misconceptions. Mikie Squared is named after the owner, Mike Fasciano and his son, Mikie. Despite the fact that he is only 4 years old, little Michael is the future heir of Mikie Squared and is quite the regular. He is often spotted after long days at pre-school watching Tom & Jerry and munching on fresh avocado, ham and the famous fresh cut french fries. His drink of choice is a glass of soymilk while the senior Fasciano prefers a Hoegaarden Belgian beer. The father-son duo share a similar passion for the Yankees, Devils, Nets, and of course, Tiger Woods and Fred Couples.
So there's a little Michael, cute, entertaining and quick with a smile, but who's the big guy? Mike was born in his parent's home in Molfetta, Italy. For ten years he worked with his family farming vegetables and making wine with his grandfather. "I spent the early years of my childhood trying to make wine and my adult life drinking it. Drinking it is much easier." Mike came to Hoboken at the age of 10, on a plane, not a boat. "More on than off," he laughs. "We were able to live in a railroad apartment. People think that's cool. But it's not really that cool." He is a product of Hoboken high where he played football and attempted to stay out of trouble. "Trouble wasn't always unavoidable!"
