What were you doing when scouted: Hanging out downtown with the family.

Least favorite fashion trends: Train hats, because it seems like now everyone is wearing them. I’m also not a fan of old men wearing spandex at dinner.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence: I’d like to see conscientious restaurants and more early shows and early dance parties, like around 7 p.m. Everything in Lawrence starts so late, which isn’t convenient if you have a kid. We need some more baby-friendly boozin’.

Who are your fashion influences: My wife, Lauren. When we met, we were wearing the exact same thing and we definitely still share clothes.

What’s the best part of your job: My family eats really well all the time. I really enjoy the blood and the sweat involved in managing a restaurant.

Tell us a secret: I always wear mismatched socks. And I love the Oak Ridge Boys.


Shoes: Birkenstocks, purchased at Footprints one and a half years ago for $60.

Socks: Gap, they were a gift from my wife about eight months ago.


Jeans: My wife’s jeans. We share clothing. I think she got them a year ago.

Shirt: Also my wife’s shirt, always worn inside out. She’s had it for almost four years.

Hat: Purchased at Rails & Sails in Savannah, Ga. I’ve had it for over 10 years, and I think it was around $6.97.

Plugs: Creation Station, purchased 1 1/2 years ago for $5.

Baby: Our son Julian aka Juice. He’s 15 months old.

Many thanks to Meghan Brozanic who, after nearly two years of scouting, is leaving Larry for Chicago. ¡Que dios vaya contigo!
