Doug Thomas, a DJ with The Eagle, snipped the red ribbon about 10 Saturday morning and suddenly, we were open for business. I am embarrassed to admit that I set up the ribbon cutting shot using just the sign as a reference instead of people. When we all scrambled up the embankment to the monument sign, we realized too late that Doug was blocking me. Oh well, live and learn! I do need to work on my group shots. So, left to right, Lisa, our Kitchen Manager, Doug, the DJ, a little bit of me, Jesse my business partner, Kathleen, Jesse’s wife, Rich, our day manager.
Quite a few people stopped by for free coffee and samples of our cinnamon rolls. Evan Zee played acoustic guitar and sang for us and Foxtrot Mary Light, a mini version of Foxtrot Mary played as well, with Tim Brisson on guitar and Mott Reaves and Dana Moret on vocals. This was an incredible afternoon.
The Grand Opening with Mick Martin and the Blues Rockers sold out! What an incredibly fun night.
And the festivities were over too soon.
