There is both too much, and too little, on my mind. Juggling many things at once is, of course, the nature of what we're doing. But what should be simple isn't, and what should be hard is, well, often hard. Vision, sure, but execution.
The city should make it easier for new businesses to open -- especially these days.

The Big Push is on. We have much to do over the next weeks to get everything in place and, yes, finally, open. The process has taken far longer than we thought. Before we could pull permits for the core work, we had to apply for, and wait to get, the proper Certificate of Occupancy. I now have a new understanding of the word glacial. At last, we are officially classified as an eating & drinking establishment, and are making swift progress in making Thirstbar materialize as such. We're working with our chef and the food menu is starting to come together.
