The old soda machine

The old soda machine is alive and well. Back when the dojo was moving, some of my coworkers brought the machine from Leonard St. to our offices at Broadway and Spring.

Sensei got us started by loading the machine onto a handtruck and pulling it up those narrow, twisting stairs to the floor above, with a couple of guys pushing from the bottom. He was supposedly showing us how we should get up the stairs, but ended up doing the job himself. We then put the machine in the freight elevator, took it to street level, and loaded it into a waiting truck.

Thanks to Scott, Dan, and the other Scott for bringing muscle and transportation, and thanks to Pando for giving the soda machine a new home, where for all we know it will give us another 35 years of service.
