The menu looks great. Definitely keep it simple if you're not going to have another chef onboard.
OOOOPS! I forgot about the buns... I am buying those, but could you imagine the PR and marketing value of making your own? I wish we could... I'm not quite that brave.

Or, nuts...

There will be at least two people in at one time. One serving and handling the cash, two prepping and cooking. I should hire a third to wipe the sweat off the foreheads of the other two.

Wife and I keep talking taking a vacation up that way... now maybe there's more incentive.

Good luck with the new endeavor!

Be careful, RD. You may have a whole stream of us DC'ers heading up your way for a free meal!

That's okay, they can all help me cook. Could 12 or 13 people fit inside a 16 foot trailer??????????????????????

I got it painted yesterday... looks great! Today, the front steps / deck and awning go on. As soon as I can figure out how to post pictures on here, I'll do it. Maybe I'll give Bill Gates a quick call.

A reality show on some obscure cable channel I subscribe to has a series about making it with a setup like yours.

Holy *******************ing blank! Opened 'er up on Saturday... BUSY and everything went well. No unexpected weird things happening... a few little "ooops, I forgot about that" type things. Sold 50 pounds of fish, 200 pounds of potatoes and 10 pounds of shrimp in the first two days. Plus about a million burgers... (Okay, slight exaggeration.)


My wife made up a facebook thing and put 'er up on the Google. Check it out... Thx again for all your support earlier!
