Life and politics from the Sunshine State's best city

Rocking the Schorsch Shot

in Apolitical by

I’ve been writing about some of the amazing people I’ve met since moving to New York and at the top of that list has to be my colleagues Rob and Alan. It was Alan who really led me to Toast because on my first visit there he was my waiter. I aksed him how he liked working there, to which he replied that it was the “best job he ever had.” People in the restaurant business just don’t say that kind of thing. Fortunately, I learned he was right. It is the best job I’ve ever had in the restaurant business. And that’s mostly because of the people I work with, including Rob and Alan, two waiters who just happen to be incredible artists.

Together, they run an art consortium/promotion firm/party planning operation called FRESH Art Long Island. They had a party a few weeks ago at Painters in Patchogue, and although I completely failed at this party — got in a fight with Talia, destroyed Suzanne and blew through loads of money on champagne — it was an amazing experience. It was an art show, a graffiti art display, a hip hop production, a bar bash…a true multi-media experience.

Rob put together a sketch on one high-octane night at The Old Port Pub. It’s called Rocking the Schorsch Shot and it’s yours truly.

Peter Schorsch is the President of Extensive Enterprises and is the publisher of some of Florida’s most influential new media websites, including,,, and Sunburn, the morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics. SaintPetersBlog has for three years running been ranked by the Washington Post as the best state-based blog in Florida. In addition to his publishing efforts, Peter is a political consultant to several of the state’s largest governmental affairs and public relations firms. Peter lives in St. Petersburg with his wife, Michelle, and their daughter, Ella.
