A much needed shelf to set your beers while you open the door to the second floor.
Well, many of you have noticed a severe lack of posts to this blog and if you are somewhat good at addition you will realize we really are on day 60 or there abouts. The truth is it becomes fairly expensive to add new items to the bar everyday and well, some of the additions had to take a back seat to a much needed thing called paying property taxes which is coming up in about 2 weeks and supposedly is pretty important. Good thing is we are able to make our next round of loans/tax payments and that means we will be open for at least another month and a half! So that is great news.
Today’s addition is a much needed practical shelf next to the door on the first floor and the door on the second floor. This shelf allows one, being you or someone like you, to set down your beers and open the door with a considerable less amount of trouble than was previously experienced by people carrying beers from the first to the second floor. This shelf will most certainly cut down on the slight amount of spillage we have been finding as people juggle their beers in order to pass through the door. This was the main reason we added the shelf as quite frankly, spilled beer is a travesty.
On another note, we have taken the last few weeks to continue to tighten things up around the place. Dylan continues to add a few things to the walls. Our library is installed and quite shortly (maybe tomorrow) we will post about it on this site. We have seen a very nice increase in our food business and people like the great Pat M. text me, “That sandwich is (English word omitted) King” after taking a sandwich home for dinner. And to that I say he is exactly right. Pat understands a good sandwich and has spent a good part of his, like so many of us, eating sandwiches. So the kicker is not only does Mike’s Deli throw out a good sandwich, we also ensure you don’t have to take a bank loan out to pay for it. $6.00 is all we ask and quite frankly, you may find as good of a sandwich for 6.00 but I’ll bet you won’t find a better. We also have a very positive repeat sandwich business in the 90% range. Meaning once one buys a sandwich here there is a 90% chance that person will purchase another sandwich from us in the near future.
So if you haven’t been down, or haven’t given our food much of a thought or just are tired of reading this blog rather than experiencing the Civil Life. Step right up, you are the next contestant on the Civil Life is right.
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
