Day One

Our first official day was filled with cleaning up and running sessions as well as brainstorming for future use. Good stuff.

Thanks to everyone that came out and helped us celebrate our opening. We had a great evening and look forward to having another get together in the near future.

The last week begins…..

Runner rug, plants, more and more paint. The details, the details, the details….
We have had several clients through to give the place a run and to work out the kinks before the official opening. The lobby is shaping up quickly with paint on the baseboards and bathroom door. Thanks to Eddie for the help. Saturday I took a short walk to the Biscayne Market and met some nice people involved in massage, organic food and a local newspaper and invited them to the opening. Also Saturday Nikos and Joy (Peter’s parents) came by and again helped out. Their help has been immensely valuable, from the beautiful curtain covering our garage door to the reinforcement of the second level. As I type this LL Court J is trying to hang new lights and getting to the point of massive frustration. Needless to say we are all looking forward to Saturday and seeing this thing fly. Hard work and patience.
