Jeremy,
I have read every single post in this thread beginning with the day it was started. I didn't post until now because I didn't want to jinx you.

Maybe I should have posted.

By documenting your trials here you have created a great road map to opening a joint that isn't full of rainbows and unicorns. Outstanding!

As of this morning, my face lit up when I read of your success yesterday. Good for you and your team. It's only going to get better as y'all settle into a routine.

Congratulations, and thanks for the EPIC farking thread!

Whenever someone tells me I should open a restaurant, I point them to this thread and ask if they are sure I could handle the stress (let alone cook as THAT good). Congrats on the successful opening. I'll be coming some time this summer. Just need to figure out when I can make the drive and "accidentally" turn off on the way to Chicago...

Sounds to me like you have a winner there. Your receipts were so much higher than you projected in spite of bad weather... Keep up the good work and the sky is the limit. Excellent stuff.

Road trip!

I've submitted the Prized Pig to our BMW motorcycle club as a 'ride to eat' for the coming season. (We have gone as far as Ovid, MI for ice cream. Blue Moon is awesome!)

Congratulations on finally opening, and transitioning to the next part of the journey - actually running the restaurant.

I've been following this thread with interest pretty much since I joined the forum, and have been amazed at your patience throughout, and also with your commitment to doing it right.

A friend here has been building a house, and I've noticed a lot of similarity between his stories of contractor and inspector problems and yours, but he finally completed the journey and has moved in, as you are now doing.

I don't normally get around your part of the country, but if I do, I will definitely stop in for some good barbecue.

Best of luck in the future.

I've been watching this thread for some time. I'm very proud of you and all the hard work you have put into starting your own business. You are living the American dream and some of us get to watch from the sidelines and live vicariously through you. I'm sure I speak for the rest of the brethren when I tell you we are really cheering for you and here to support you as much as we can, most of us remotely. Good luck to you and your team!!

Sounds like a plan!
