rhapsody in blue

I don’t know whether I’m more surprised when people I’ve never met before ask me how the building is going, or when people say to me, “I know more or less where you’re moving, but I just can’t seem to find it.”  Problem solved.  The blue paint went on today, and while I was nervous […]

when is a garbage can a dustbin?

No, that’s not a lawnmower.  I’m sure it has a name, but to me it will always be a flattener.  You’re looking at the area where the trash and recycling bins will go, and if you look at these two photos, you’ll agree that we stand a significant chance of having possibly the flattest trash […]

wet paint, dry humor

Neither one was facing me when I took this photo, but when I asked if they were smiling, I was fixed with a glare.  “I’m smiling inside,” said the guy on the right.  I have a feeling the only way he smiles is inside, but I don’t know him that well yet.

cookin’ with gas

a trench, a gas line- what more could we ask for? This morning a trench was dug, that we might have a gas line.  With any luck, we’ll use the gas that comes through it to cook your lunch or dinner one day.  Or brunch.  Where do you stand on the brunch idea?  We’re seriously […]

reaching new heights

You may or may not recall my bellyaching about the fact that code required me to spend nearly $15,000 on a new grease trap and its accoutrements even though the grease trap already on the premises was twenty-five times the size of the one we have now.  I had thought very little about how bitter […]

listen for who’s working

The walls are nearly finished, paint-wise, except for a few touch-ups.  I’ll say this about the painters:  they’re a serious bunch.  That’s not bad at all, mind you- I like a focused person working on Feast.  But you can tell who’s working on the building without looking by other, seriousness-related cues.  When the electricians are […]

the first cut is the deepest

Okay, so you can’t really see it, but by the time I got out there with the camera, they had already put the saw back on the truck, so the photo is a lot less dramatic than I had hoped it would be.  Still, it’s the harbinger of drama to come:  the cut means they’ll […]

a (few) coat(s) of many colors

Well, well, well.  It’s starting to look like Feast.  I’m amazed at how many of our guests have been panic-stricken about whether our color scheme will change.  the answer:  only a bit.  As you can see, our burgundy and gold are plastered all over the new space, though the ceiling will no longer be toothpaste […]
