nightlight

We fired up the signs last night and two thirds of them look pretty good.  The monument sign needs a little love, but we’ll get that fixed.  Apparently, the lights inside the sign haven’t functioned at all in at least five years, so I feel lucky to have it work at all.  This one is […]

truckin’

You’ll never guess what showed up in Feast’s back yard yesterday, or maybe you will, since I’ve posted a photo of it here.  We’re moving the contents of our walk-in into a refrigerated truck, so that as soon as I finish posting this stuff I can run over to the restaurant to help finish moving […]

bamboozled

Huge stacks of bamboo planking arrived yesterday, under the care of Seth and his quiet compatriot.  They hit the ground running and they’re working through their holiday weekend to get the flooring ball rolling, as it were.  It should be done in less than a week.  They’ve already started the floor prep.  Take a look.

seeing red

Our lighting guy seems like a good sort.  He loves to talk, and he gave me all sorts of advice on the restaurant business.  He told me all about his upcoming cruise to Alaska and his birthday and his favorite places to eat (big fan of the Olive Garden- I should check it out, he […]

rack attack

I know we’re over budget everywhere, but I’m hoping that this lone bike rack isn’t enough.  We have two more at Current Feast that I’m hoping to bring over if I can find a spot for them.  Plus there’s Bob, Builder of Bike Racks, who I’ll try and set something up with eventually, but in […]

the best-dressed farmer

There’s this guy I’ve known for maybe eleven years.  His name is Noel Patterson, and when I knew him at first, we’d been thrown together into a dysfunctional restaurant that circled the proverbial drain for over a year before it finally did itself and us a favor and had its doors nailed shut.  I was […]

i know why the caged bird dines al fresco

In a dream world, the fence around our patio would be waist-high, or at most, five feet.  You know, the kind of fence over which you see your neighbor, and you lean over and chat about lawnmowers or the paperboy or some other aspect of the idyllic suburban life of a bygone era.

a bright spot

The painters are back.  Again.  It appears to me that the building will have been painted in its entirety a total of three times, as it keeps getting scuffed, scraped and dusted with graffiti.  The flashing looks good, though.

chillsville

As you participate in the construction process, you begin to understand how many things you can’t accomplish until you’ve accomplished something else first.  It’s really exciting to see the stuff happen that can happen concurrently.  Some days last month were positively a beehive of activity.  Now that most things are done, you being to discover […]

travertine, interrupted.

We’re only part way through, here- neither is it cleaned, nor is it grouted, but it does look pretty sharp.  Here’s an aloe-y mosaic around the top of the tile wainscoting in the loo.  This one brought to you by Robin Riley.  Next week’s bathroom mosaic will be brought to you by Kathy Spain.
