Today we started work at the new place with John B, Mike and Manuel. These guys can make even sweeping fun! We goth the old fridge out of there, the old pipes, shelves, the old alarm system, the old phone lines, the old, old dust… all ripped out of there. I even got treated to a single malt from next door! I’m in builder’s heaven. Tomorrow is power cleaning day!!!
The old Duval cleaners,
will soon be:
Isn’t gorgeous? Wait until we’re done with it:-) But the best part is got to be the location, 4220 Duval, next to the Hyde Park Grill, Dolce Vita, Asti, Mother’s, Fresh Plus, The Bakery, Ayayay… I hope we don’t get too fat from all the wonderful food around us.
I’ve already vowed to head for the smoothies at Mother’s. Honest… Had my first one today with Joe. Speaking of Joe, if it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have gotten this space… he sent me a notice about the space behind it and it occured to me to walk around and I saw this one… showed it to MJ, who then proceeded to want it badly, although it didn’t seem like it was for lease… and it sort of kinda wasn’t… But it was… Many meetings and much charming-duty later… here’re we are!!!!
That’s John B:-) You’ve heard from him in the newsletter. You’ll be reading much more about him AND his business partner Mike, the awesome!
Yes, the old fridge will go:-) I posted it on Craigslist, maybe someone needs parts for an ancient monster… But check the north facing clerestories, inside… I’ll post more pics and renderings and plans soon, I’ll try to keep updates on the process,
MJ’s been at the office until very late these last two nights (he’s still there) drawing up a storm. I’m very excited:-) The best part is the swivel TV at the front. We are going to be running a 24/7 show!
