Union & Main had its grand opening last Wednesday. EG News’s social media manager, Stephen Susi, attended and was able to get in some time with part-owner Olivia Culpo. Maybe you noticed the selfie he posted to our Instagram page. Stephen maintains Olivia actually asked him if wanted to take the selfie, saving him the embarrassment of asking. Culpo’s genuineness and sincerity that helped her become Miss Universe in 2012 was on full display.
