Art from Friends

We seem to be amassing a nice collection of local art! Our friend Kipp at Northern Draw made us some sweet art out of a skateboard that is now on display above our back door.



Our friend Sean also has been experimenting with 3-D. He made us an awesome interactive Jackson 5 piece that's on our bar as well.

And to top it off, we have some new, gigantic art from our neighbors at Gallery Zero. It's huge and amazing!! Come see it!!!

New New New

There's been a lot of newness going on in our 'hood lately! In the last month both Straight From New York Pizza and Sweet Hereafter have opened just a few doors down from us. The opening of these places brings a whole new energy and liveliness to the street. Plus they both have awesome food.

For the past two years, I have blogged that July is the best month for Justin and I. Well this year is no different. We got married July 9th and had the best time ever!! We turned our wedding in to a 4 day wedding weekend and it was the best idea! Our friends and family from the East Coast got to see the store we've been talking about for years with their own eyes and everyone had a blast!

We spent a week in Hawaii and our business partner Dameian did a great job managing the store while we were gone. We got our full liquor license a whole week before we went on our honeymoon, so there was definitely a sense that we threw our employees to the wolves. But everything turned out great!

We have three new girls working at the bar, as well as a new guy on Saturday nights. We have one employee who has been with us since the very beginning of opening and he's taking some time off to bike around South America after graduating college. He should be returning in about two months with a nice tan and full of stories!

Coming back to the bar after Hawaii was amazing, because we really missed all our regulars and customers!! It was really awesome that everyone came out to see how everything went. We feel really blessed.
