Glad you're feeling better!

Had a woman come up to me at a church function the other night -- feeding +/- 80 homeless people in our community -- and she said, "You really need to open a restaurant..."

And I got a slight tingle.

And then all I could think of was "Remember the Prized Pig!"

Glad to see you're still kicking.

...and what kind of Valentine's Day requires 100 chickens? Sounds either weird or awesome.

Wow. In two nights I have read this entire thread. Amazing story. A shout out to your wife and kids for staying by your side through all this. While I know it's not been easy on you, I'm sure it hasn't been easy for those behind you at home. Congrats on your success thus far. Hope it continues.

Today is the day when you wish you never owned a restaurant.

Anything and everything that could have gone wrong did. All the worst possible customers you could imagine came in.

Oh, and having an elderly customer fall and crack her skull on the toilet in the bathroom in the middle of the lunch rush and having to call an ambulance while blood is getting spread all over the restaurant like a CSI crime scene.

This isn't what I signed up for. I can't wait to have just 8 hours of free time on Monday.

Sadly this is all normal. I worked as a cook for about 12 years and have
seen many crazy people come in and all kinds of things happen that
makes you wonder what is wrong with the Human Race. But it's not
just Restaurants, it's any time you deal with the Public, you are going to
encounter all manner of crazy people.

Some years ago I was a courier for Fedex and one day some lady called
to complain that one of the couriers was driving too fast through the
parking area of the office building where she worked. Naturally our
manager told that courier to be careful and drive slower at that office
building. Problem fixed!

No, the next day that same lady called again to complain that the
courier was driving so slow that she thought he was Mocking her,
and she didn't appreciate it.

You just can't stop crazy people from being crazy.

Hopefully I can finish the year without sending anyone else to the hospital.

Other than yesterday from hell, our anniversary week has been just outstanding. Still waiting on the pictures from the ribbon cutting, but it was standing room only almost all day Thursday. And Friday and Saturday we posted numbers like the best weekends of the summer. Even had someone, not even brethren, drive 150 miles to eat here.

Right now the main goal is to start booking events for the rest of the year. Looking to get in a few car shows, bike shows, fairs, festivals, etc. If I could get the mobile unit booked most weekends this summer that would be huge. Going to need it to grow because I've about tapped out the capacity of this little dining room and kitchen.

Better than the alternative I guess!

I know the weather stinks now but, can you create an outdoor dining/picnic area and host live bands? Do you have a Beer license?

Congrats on the one year anniversary. You've definitely earned your stripes. Regarding the public, yeah they're nuts.
