We really don't have much left to do in the space. We're waiting on some plumbing and electrical and then we can get everything inspected. Everything seems to have gone through with the City, after three months of back and forth. I have a bunch of our bar and kitchen equipment on hold at their respective restaurant supply stores. After inspection, we just have to close up the kitchen wall, bring in all the equipment, get approval from the health department and we're ready to go!
We've been helping out with a lot of the shared space. Yesterday, I cleaned out the walk-in refrigerator and today I worked on the patio area. We had to take down a water line and tear out a part of the covered patio Carl just put in a few months ago. The guys next door are going to use the alleyway as an entrance at times, which is going to be sweet!
It's been tough because we just want to get open already!! But we have to keep reminding ourselves, all in due time. And when I put it in perspective, we've been waiting for 2.5 years for this to happen, so what's a few more weeks?
