... short on progress.
Well, not really, but definitely short on 'post-able'/tangible progress. Unfortunately, due to a number of factors beyond our control, our space still is not ready to be turned over to us, and won't be ready for at least a few weeks still. This will push back (forward?) our opening date, sadly.
In the meantime we do have a bunch going on... we've ordered our espresso machine (yay!) which we are totally excited about, and some chairs too(for which I've been sewing some cushion prototypes). We're also working on spec'ing out all kinds of stuff and getting tighter quotes on equipment and construction. It's tax time too, so I'm also working on a lot of accounting stuff, both for the coffee shop and the design business and still researching lots of logistical stuff.
We've also got a lot of design work coming in right now too, so Miguel's been pulling a lot of late nights/weekends working (not to mention getting stuck all day in upstate New York in the midst of an air traffic fiasco the other day). Dante (le gros chat noir) also got quite scary-sick a couple of weeks ago, and after quite a bit of nurturing (and 'procedures' and medications) he definitely seems on the mend, which is quite a relief. But there's certainly been no lack of excitement around here, even if it seems we're quiet. Hopefully we'll have lots to report on (and photograph) soon!
