But I don’t like that sink…whah

I need it smaller! Can you find me one?

It has to be changed out…Now!

Because I can!

Really, I need a 3 sink?  After this I should open a restaurant…do I really need to add an expensive grease trap? Making nice with the Health Inspector. Oh the things I am learning…

We are on the home stretch, and it is an intense orbit.  General contractor meetings, pushing the painters and carpenters and plumbers and electrician who has a lot to do and I think probably went to the Grateful Dead concert.  He is that era.  MIA for awhile.

Trying to settle on hard dates and roll back from what has to be done to open on the 31st of July…

For the 4th of July Morry wanted to stoke up the SMOKER…and smoke ribs for 5 hours and test the rubs we will be selling to rate what we liked.  Verdict:  We liked them all.  Different flavors for different tastes.

I might have to stop ordering product now even though CJ and I went to the Fancy Food Show in NYC last week and saw lots to buy now and then build up our assortment for the holiday.  However, I think my open to buy is closed!  Unless you all come in and shop ’til you drop!  

We will carry all of these olives like this…at least that is my vision

Did you ever think olive snack packs were an option?

So what was the big trend at the Fancy Food Show…to me it was beverage.  Lots of infused liquids with herbs and fruits and what you could do for creative recipes for cocktails and mocktails which is a big trend too…no alcohol!

SO WHAT SHOULD I DO FOR RECREATION TO CLEAR MY MIND WHICH IS WORKING 24/7?  BOYFRIEND ARNOLD?

I did love CONAN THE BARBARIAN…1982 with Arnold, James Earl Jones, etc.  Arnold as a current Terminator might be just the thing, even thought the reviews are only 2 stars. (Conan was zero stars)

Guardian Robot ‘POPs’ as at the Terminator might be comic relief to my intense life today. Enjoy!

Will let you know details as we lock in dates for opening…anyone game for
