Our last and final inspection from the health dept.on Monday to officially open Base Camp Cafe.
Pierre is whipped been pulling 80 hr weeks trying to finish.
I am just tired of all of it.
Opening a cafe is not easy.
Hiring staff, digging up rock, landscaping, painting,
Ordering from BIG companies like Coca Cola & Sysco
( who knew we would ever do that?)
Working on the menu.
Making sure everything is up to code and ADA .
Sticking with our budget..
yeah right, we blew that right out of the water...
It's all a new.
Dealing with by passers eager to find out when we are opening
and of course one smarty pants that asked:
" define soon"
So much to learn.
We have a lovely espresso machine from Italy that we are learning how to use next Tuesday.
I am not just a Blogista
soon to be Barrista :)
It was actually a blessing we were so naive going into this endeavor-
had we known we might have not.
Well that's all folks,
I am so tired I am diving into bed with my work clothes and boots on tonite.
See you all in a bit
once Base Camp Cafe is officially open I think Pierre and I can breathe a little easier.
