THE OPS CROP

New York Magazine - - STRATE­GIST -

 DEC 2019 Mira Moore, a server at Ops in Bush­wick, also finds a snail in a box of arugula. Moore, who had pre­vi­ously owned rats, de­cides to take it home and names him Rocket. MAR 2020 Artist Oki­moto finds snails in her yard in Queens and asks her friend Moore if they make good pets. Af­firmed, she keeps one and hands out sev­eral via con­tact­less pickup. MAR 2020 Con­struc­tion es­ti­ma­tor Ra­mona Sadiq takes two from Oki­moto.

“They’re blobby,” she says. “Like those blobby ce­ram­ics. Maybe we’re just into blobby shapes.” MAR 30, 2020 Buz­zFeed News strate­gist Mag­gie Schultz was on In­sta­gram and “saw Oki­moto was giv­ing some away. My for­mer col­league at Buz­zFeed had snails, and they were kind of cud­dly and seemed easy to care for. So I adopted one from Oki­moto and named it Tony.”
