Default Stopped in to Willie B's tonight

Happen to be in the area tonight and swung by Willie's hoping he may be there getting set for his opening this week.

Willie was there, and while not "officially" open, he was serving up BBQ orders to some paying customers.

I stopped back in around 10PM after coming back from my destination and Willie gave me a "tour" of the place just as he was cleaning up and shutting down.

It was great to see him finally living out his dream. Willie's gonna represent the Brethren well.

Michele stopped by on her way home and picked up dinner. She said it was good to see Bob Devine also. The food was great!

well brothers it has been a week since we opened and it went very well. I want to thank all the Long Island Brethren who stopped in to lend there support and help it really means alot.
we are getting great feedback from the customers about everything and the best complimint we are getting is repeat business. We actully have 2 people who have eatin with us eveyday so far. Now if i could only figure out how not to work 100 hour weeks.
Again i want to thank all of you guys for your help and support through all of this and hope to see more of you real soon.

Thank you

Will,

I hate to break it to you buddy, but Melissa and Molly don't actually count as customers!

And you won't get too mcuh sympathy here, because I'm sure that most people here wish they could figure out a way to spend 100 hours a week cooking barbecue.

Good luck and I hope to see you again soon.

Get your head out of your BYC!!!!!!!!!!

I'm just jealous. I was at Willy's on Wednesday evening. I stood by the front counter from about 6pm to 7:30. Every time Willy opened the Southern Pride I was in heaven. The customers were coming in at a nice pace for the first week. Took me home some ribs, pulled pork sausage and brisket. Real BBQ and I didn't have to wait 6-12 hours. That will be nice in the winter.

Thanks Will for hooking me up with the "Hungry Man" special!!!!!!!!!!

The only way that will ever happen, is to close the place down.

Welcome to another level of being married my friend.
