Only a few days ago, our second visitor came and left his mark, and only a few days later, it’s all gone. Sad, I know, but we have the photo and we’ll always treasure our visit from, well, whoever it was.
While the rain’s been good for Tucson, it makes for a nail-biting experience watching the stucco go on. Coat number one is done, and there are two more to go. Pray for rain, but only until Monday. Then pray for no rain for about two days. Then, by all means, pray for rain again. If […]
I think this person’s initials are “TFR,” but maybe that first letter is a C, or a symbol, like the Artist Formerly Known as Prince, Then Eventually Known Again as Prince used to have. Whatever it is, maybe this person and Hektic will become friends. I’m glad TFR (or CFR, or SymbolFR) was kind enough […]
Maybe we’re not quite ready to lay out a welcome mat, but at least we have a place to put one. Our front door has been framed out and measurements have been taken for the glass. Now that we have a threshold, I’d say we’ve crossed a couple of figurative thresholds as well: we no […]
Uncrated and full of majesty, our exhaust hood is now hanging from the rafters. In a way, it’s like buying tires, or maybe fixing your roof: it costs a lot more than you feel it should, and in the end, you only have something that you need, as opposed to something fun. That said, I […]
The big green sign is up, so you have a couple of weeks to express your support for (or to complain about) our moving the liquor license to the new location. My vote: support it. We’ll be able to offer tastier drinks with a liquor license. Seriously, doesn’t a Bohemian Bicycle sound good right now? […]
The windows are all framed up; we’re just waiting for the glass. And there’s more going on as well, but it makes for less enthralling photos. There’s insulation in the ceiling, for instance, but I can’t say it’s exciting to look at.
Wow. I thought I wouldn’t bring the camera today, because how much could they get done in a few hours? As it turns out, they can get quite a bit done. I went home and got the camera. In the four hours that they had worked in my absence, most of the walls in the […]
Three fans of a very silly size showed up yesterday. They’re not much to look at, but they will keep billowing clouds of airborne olive oil from wafting through the restaurant. They’ll also keep it from wafting over Discount Tire, as per City Code. No wafting. Mostly a fire-related stipulation, but I think it’s wrong […]
In preparation for stuffing our guests with beautiful food, we’re stuffing our walls with beautiful insulation. Oh, how cozy we’ll all be- toasty warm in the winter and cool in the summer, except for the part where we have four ovens, a steamer, a fryer, two char-broilers, two griddles, eighteen burners and the heat from […]
