The Brooklyn Eagle mascot was impressed with the photo gallery of the whole Bar Method team, seen on the wall next to co-owners Katie and Caitlin. But, alas, Eddie the Eagle failed his tryout to be a team member, despite his ‘thumbs up’ for the exquisite renovation of their studios.

Paul Samulski (not pictured), President of the North Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, was too shy to be photographed with Eddie, even though he and Elaine Brodsky (pictured here with no fear of a massive Eagle) arranged the upbeat visit by representative Maloney to the Greenpoint biz community.
