1. an organic opening at a measured pace
2. taking your time to figure out what you’re doing so you don’t screw up
3. not making a big hoopla and inviting everyone and their brother to come so they can catch you in every mistake you’re sure to make.
On Wednesday September 7 we are going to begin our slow-pening. It has taken us a long time to realize our dream, the entire process has been pretty organic and we have allowed things to unfold at their own pace. We have been patient (most of the time) and we are not about to change that now.
So, we’re going to start by opening for happy hour at 4pm and go until closing for about a week and a half. Once we have mastered that, we will slowly phase in lunch, the retail store and our entertainment calendar.
Like life, it will be a process and we will do our best to be vested in the process (the journey) and not the goal (a “grand opening”) After all, we’re in this for the long haul.
