As we move out of May and into June, things begin to take formation more quickly and recognizably. The top of Jamie Johnston's cherry bar-top is on, and looks absolutely beautiful! The sign has gone up, outside the entrance- completed by NH sign Maker Chuck McLean of Timberline Signs. We are still waiting on Laura Fuller's Stained glass pieces, but trust me, they will be worth the wait! The facade has been re-painted and should compliment our outdoor seating quite beautifully! (FYI- outdoor seating probably will not be instituted until July....). Each piece of equipment has begun to make its way to it's permanent home in the kitchen, bar, and dish area, and as we speak, the bathrooms are getting a few fresh coats of paint! We will have our soft opening for a private attendance on June 2nd and will be open (barring any major catastrophes) June 3rd for lunch. Its all culminating before our eyes. We are so excited to be here and to be in this arena of the Portland Community. Thank you to EVERYONE who has helped make this possible!
