The Finish Line

In honor of Marathon Monday (and for those of you out there who are unfamiliar with the significance of this day in MA, it's a day when locals come out to cheer on the runners of the Boston Marathon whilst drinking, carousing, etc. Oh and it's also Patriot's Day...), the team is considering our own race to the finish.

We are at our last mile, we are exhausted, we are feeling accomplished, but also like our legs are going to give out. We clearly see the finish line, yet it seems so far away. The metaphors can really go on and on...and on and on. What I am trying to say is that the team is so close to finishing build-out, we're making our final purchases and final touches, yet still have a number of steps to complete before we can actually serve food.

Once the construction is set, we must have an inspector come in to evaluate our space for a Certificate of Occupancy and also to sign off on a Health Permit. We are a bit terrified. What if we need to drastically change something that ends up taking weeks? We don't think there are any potential hazards in the space, but with this team - anything could happen (I mean hey, no one thought Saus could happen and here we are!)

Anyway, we're so nervous. We just need you guys to keep cheering for us a little longer as we "run our last mile" - I know, I can't help it, I talk in cliches in my sleep. After all, when this project is done, the new project begins - and it's all about you guys and providing you with a fantastic food experience. See you at the finish line. (Number of times the word "finish" was used in this post: 6)

Then here's a cheer. Looking forward to the finish of this race and the beginning of the next.
