Update

Looks like offical opening date is Aug 2nd. Provided the inspections go well.

The fire marshall is coming tomorrow for inspection. The health inspection is Friaday.

Still waiting on the fence people, but don't think they will keep us from opening.

The signs on the building went up yesterday (pictures coming). Still waiting on them to put the lettering on the window.
