North Shore business owners, Jazz Pennino owner of Mode Music, Vivian Vassar owner of Hey Viv & Ettore Mazzei owner of chez vous caterers have each been in business for 30 years & had a chance to celebrate their accomplishments at last month’s “This Way on Bay” mixer at the Art Cypher /Overspray Event Space.
