We had a lot of grandiose ideas, but not a lot of money, and ultimately most of our furniture came from our own apartments (i.e. the tiny TV dinner table and big over sized green chair), to thrift shop finds, friends and even throw-aways on the street have helped create that warm, cozy atmosphere that exists at sugar Sweet sunshine today. We tried on several occasions to come up with clever names. In the end, it was a trip down the Bowery to look at a space on Rivington Street which would end up being the home of sugar Sweet sunshine, but not for another year. On that walk to the LES, on Bowery & Bleecker, etched in the cement was “sugar Sweet sunshine, Love” in a big heart.
