The kitchen floor’s been grouted, for the most part, so we brought in the equipment that we didn’t need desperately at Current Feast.  I estimated we’d get it done in about three hours, since there were six of us.  Seven and a half hours and a mild sunburn later, we were finished.  Just enough time […]

free refills

Remember how the concrete floated the trench drains up above the level of the rest of the floor?  They’re fixing that now.

sidewalk Sunday

Monday morning the pouring begins again; this time there will be sidewalks.  I foolishly forgot to take photos of the equipment we liberated (and purchased) from my kind brother.  Cuvee will live on  in Tucson both in the kitchen (an oven, a sink, a couple of refrigerators and a freezer, plus lots of pots and […]

sign o’ the times, part III

The first sign went up yesterday, and when I went by at 6:30 this morning, regrettably sans camera, they were starting in on the other one.  I’m headed back over now to see the progress.
