Hey men. If you’ve been coming by our house for the past few years you’ve no doubt run into our longtime employee and all around good sport Quentin. Quentin’s a midwest boy with a kicky sneaker fetish and a big heart. We cornered Quentin in the garden and got him to get his hands dirty for us.
Hey Quentin! Welcome to the belvedere! Where are you from? Originally from St. Louis Misery. I mean Missouri. But I have been in NYC for about 8 years now
And what will you be doing around our house this summer? I will be doing a little housekeeping management, front desk, and whatever else I’m asked to do <wink wink nudge nudge>
You’re returning to the Belvedere, what brings you back year after year? The recession! Its hard out here for a pimp. LOL..No. I have tremendous amount of respect for John, Craig and Julian and we are one big happy family, so as long as they keep having me I will keep coming back. Remind them of this at bonus time.
What are you most excited about this summer? The release of the new Nike Air Yeezy (sneakers).. Or did you mean this summer on fire island? Im excited about it all, meeting new guest, seeing returning guest, and all the parties
What’s your nickname around here? The Ancient One or Quentina
Original! Why that nickname? I have been around as long as some of the paintings.
Aw you’re not that old! Will you be participating in the invasion this year? I’m still thinking about it, I did it a few years ago under the alias Amy Crackhouse. Everyone thought it was genius! And I had a blast doing it, so it is very possible that I will be doing it again.
What’s your drag persona? Anita Gram Nah’Really. (Its French.)
Cute!! What’s the most important thing to remember when servicing our guests? Make sure they are having a good time and feeling at home..
It’s your day off of work on Fire Island, what do you do? Lay out on the beach? Lay out at the Belvedere? Get off of Fire Island! You’re free!, or Day off? What’s that?? I’m free!!! so I’m probably somewhere having a cocktail or two or seven
Anything else you’d like our guests to know about you? Im not as mean as I look. (2) I’m a huge fan of Ciroc red berry vodka..(just saying if they wanted to surprise me with a gift) (3) No, Im not straight
Coulda fooled us. (Yeah right) Thanks Quentin! Here’s to a great summer 2011!
