We've had paper up in our windows almost going on 5 months now. For a while we had some signs up saying Hall of Records - Grand Opening May. Before we knew it, we were crossing out May and writing June. And even faster still, July is almost upon us and we still can't open our doors.
The building has had some plumbing issues - as anyone who has visited the Aalto Lounge's patio can clearly see. Our back yard is somewhat of a mine field right now. It's put us back into the City's permit system, with no real end date in sight.
But we still show up every day with smiles on our faces. We feel extremely grateful that we even have the opportunity to have our business. In a way I feel like this is the Universe's way of saying, oh, you want a really amazing location and an amazing storefront? We're going to make sure you really, really want it.
Well, we want it alright. And no delays with the City or with old drain pipes are going to get us down. :)
Soon (Exclamation Point!)
