The really huge storm the weekend before last slowed us down, but this weekend’s storms were apparently small potatoes for TEP, who was on site bright and early today to install our transformer. The meter comes tomorrow, and things should start falling into place shortly thereafter.
The plumbers will hit the ground running again on Monday, so Ron, the carpenter we all love and admire, came in on Saturday to get the bar ready for the sinks they’ll be installing. First, plywood: we can screw the sinks into it at any point. No hunting for studs. Then, FRP, which, as we […]
While the bar at Feast bears great promise (Welcome, David and Don, to the bartending and table waiting staff of Feast), there’s always that issue of sitting at the bar: if there are more than two of you, you’re craning your neck like Nadia Comenici just to talk to your friends. Problem solved: New Feast […]
Here’s a quick break to talk about the restrooms. Plumbing’s been added. Tile’s been added. Tile’s been removed. Then it will be added again. After a slight miscommunication with the tile installers, the trim has been first installed and then removed from the walls in the restrooms, but by now you know how we feel […]
It’s happening quite quickly now around the exterior of the building. The parking lot is paved, and yesterday by the time I got there, a bunch of plants and a system to irrigate them as necessary seemed to sprout from the earth itself.

The last of the exterior signs went up yesterday. They call it a monument sign, and all the sign people I’ve spoken to spoke of it in awed, hushed tones. Evidently, because it was already there, and because the previous establishment was a restaurant, it’s grandfathered in: we can leave it there to offend the […]
Look what we got: the fans and condensing unit were installed for the wine room yesterday, so we can serve everything at cellar temperature. And we can hide in here when it’s hot and swampy.
What’s with the song titles today? Here comes an extra bar to lean on, have a seat at and enjoy a snack or a sip while you wait for a table, or while you don’t. You can stay here all evening if you want.
I can still feel the heat radiating from the warm asphalt my new friends put down in the parts of the parking lot that were ripped to shreds. I can’t say that warm is my idea of a good time when the weather’s like this, but in this instance, it certainly cheered me up. Take […]
The Mobile Mini guy came yesterday and took away our storage pod. We’ve been through good and bad times together, me, the staff of Feast and that pod. We’ve filled it with what we thought was equipment of some value from Der Wienerschnitzel, only to discover that it was worth about the cost of dragging […]
