Royce and Flip are the two electricians who’ve been here pretty much daily. Yesterday morning they came and mounted everything to the side of the new (old) walk-in. They bent conduit, they pulled wires, and they bolted, twisted and torqued. Flip wore a towel on his head. Then John, the project manager, came and explained […]
Robin has a heck of a beaux. I don’t know how he got roped into this, but he did what appeared to be the grunt work yesterday while Robin, who’s no slouch herself, work-wise, finished up the grout, which toned down the brightness of the travertine quite nicely. It’s kinda brown and soft-like.
Another signature in our guest book today (actually yesterday), but kind of illegible. I realize I’ve got no place complaining about anyone else’s writing. My signature looks like I wrote it from inside a blender.
Eric and his cronies wasted no time in getting the walk-in over to the new space, and they were hard at work on it today. One for raw materials and the other for prepped food? One for the restaurant, the other for catering? We haven’t decided yet.
The floor guys were back at it today, in full force this time. Twice as many, and redoing the floor from scratch, as they discovered our wall was not exactly parallel to the wall on the other side of the room. They took the whole thing apart and started fresh, which is why there doesn’t […]
Oops. I posted the photos of the flooring before I showed you that Ron wrapped the bar in alder on Friday. Delicious. And my apologies for posting out of order.
When the concrete around Feast started going in, I saw a guy in a hat checking in periodically to make sure everything was going according to plan. He looked like the owner of Benchmark Concrete, which in fact he turned out to be. And I imagined him strolling from one Benchmark job to the […]
I can’t say the budget overruns have been an enjoyable experience, but I can say that after just a couple hundred square feet, I’m glad we sprung for some decent flooring. I’ve got nothing against polished concrete when I go to a restaurant as a guest, but when you’re walking on it all day, you […]
It’s often been my experience that when a bunch of people show up in crisp, matching uniforms, they know what they’re doing about half the time; the other half, they’re letting the uniforms supply the professionalism. So when Eric and Todd show up, with Tall Skinny Other Guy (whose name I’m embarrassed not to know), […]
Omar and I started yesterday bright and early, hauling everything out of the walk-in and into our temporary refrigerated truck. while the truck is about the size of our walk-in, it’s configured rather differently, which means many of us will need to lose a few pounds to get in and out of it. Still, it […]
