4 months later......

Wow, what a crazy 4 months. I can't believe all that has happened so quickly.

Lots of good press, and returning happy loyal customers. Awesome.

We started out as a 7 piece unit, 2 new peeps are helping cope with the chaos that we are dealing with. I knew I had the "A" team when we started and people are finally finding about the good stuff we do. We are getting through the newness of it all so far... quite well I think.

It's all so hysterical and new to me...but it's working so far. We are only going to get better. New food menu, new drink menu, patio and special event room on the way.....

Who'da thunk a place on Foster would take reservations????

New Radiohead!

The new album is out! I have not been so excited about any music for I don't know how long.

I wonder if this is like what people felt in the 60's when the Beatles released their music.

I'm playing it nonstop tonight.

And probably tomorrow night.

You download it from their website, and you can pay whatever you want.

Unbelievable.

For the record, I gave em about 20.00-seeing how the dollar is doing so crappy against every currency right now- I contributed 10 English pounds.

It is so worth every cent, shilling or pound.

It's a done deal!

Our first party rocked!

Many highlights, but the fact everyone was clapping in sync with the Cars "My Best Friend's Girfriend" was awesome. I think they understand me.

We rule da skool!

Good times to come!

Home Stretch

We got our ok from the health department today, which means we can open!!!!!!!

We're having a party this sat night, and then "soft" opening this week.

I'll try and get pix up tomorrow, things are finishing up quickly.

What an amazing 7 months.

The hard part now is picking tunes for opening night.

And really, that's not so bad in relation to everything else.......but I do need to figure out the cash register and all its million programs.....

The first plate of fries!

Foley is back, painting the front of our building! Jesus, he met more people in one week here than I have in 6 months!!! My goodness, how much fun to have him here.

The bar, with brown mahogany stain........

The plumbing is so close, yet so far way. It's the reason for those gray hairs that have sprouted..

Target date is 9/27.
