Here we go we reopen tomorrow the weather up until now has been freakishly cold for this time of year. Going to be in the 40's and 50's over the week end and we also have a fundraiser to do for our local Little league this weekend. We are doing half chicken dinners and pull pork dinners with beans,mac salad and roll and butter. Our goal is to sell around 250 which should be doable with all the pre sales and advertising that was done around town.It will be nice to get back at it!!

Local paper,town bulletin board,my Chambers website and at chamber meetings, we also have a local phone company and the VP Lives across the street from and he gives me a deal on sending out fliers in their bills plus i go around to local business and hand out menus and get email address so i can email specials to and take orders from them. I am also going to deliver on select days this year with a minimum order of $20.PS When are you getting your blues hog in i need some soon.

The first full week has been slamin!! it's been hard keeping up with it.Good thing the New BWS Professional showed up when it did. Booked two other gigs already off the vending site. I can't wait to see what the warm weather brings. The economy doesn't seem to be bothering people when it comes to Q. How is everyone else making out.

Congrats.

I have been on to the local council about dates and requirements for events and last night I found someone who is some what interested in getting behind us if I can provide a business plan and all the rest. This week will be the task of trying to get those things together and I'm lost with it all.

Ohhh that's slick!!


We have had some great news this week. A friend of mine owns three burrito places and wants to join in in making some extra cash with the BBQ scene. He's from Frisco and has been here for ten or so years so he knows the ropes. We plan on working some of the summer shows together and with his business license and backing we should be god to go.

The cooker if off to the welder sometime this week too.

Thanks I could never afford to start out right now on my own. The pub landlord even offered to help out any way he can.
I'll be doing a BBQ on Saturday ( it's the Grand Nationals) at the pub to raise funds for the food.

I haven't been around in a while but I'm glad to see business is good for everyone. Keep it up and we'll put the she-she places to shame with their small portions of food you can't pronounce or pay for.
