Are we there yet?
The entire month of January, this has been my question to my builder - every-single-day.
Finally, the space is starting to take shape!
Its funny how many things there are to do and align at a 500 sq-ft space...the story of opening a food & booze place in beloved SF :)
Inspections is all I dream about these past couple of weeks. Today we had the Alcohol & Beverage Control (ABC) inspection scheduled. I just missed the inspector by a few minutes, since she came in sooner than her appointment. My builder informed that she took a few measurements and called it done. What does this mean? I called my amazing ABC license broker - who confirmed all went well with the inspection and our ABC license will go live next week! This means, we can actually buy all the delicious wines I've been tasting these past couple of months - Hooooray, one less thing to worry about!
We have Fire, Health and Final Building inspections scheduled next week - waiting with baited breath to see how all of that goes.
If all goes well, we may be able to get those much awaited soft opening(s) going - as always (without much choice) I am being patient and hoping for the best!
And before I sign off, here's a picture of our painted walls (reminds us of the color of wine :))- and that tall wall is metallic brass color (2 more quotes to go) and guess what's going behind that....?
Our wine storage storing all our prized vinos of course!
Stay tuned for more exciting updates next week.
Until then, Namaste :)
