Happy New Year!


It has been too long since I have sat down to put all my thoughts to paper.  I wish that the lag in time was due to extended travels abroad but rather, the excuses of work, holidays, a new job, and gearing up for work on Brimmer leads the charge.

The end of the year was filled with bank meetings and reality checks.  Overall, most of the banks I met with were impressed with what we had to offer.  That being said we had a few deficiencies in calculations, missing data, and a little gap in our funding.  As of today, we have rectified their requests and are getting ready to re-submit. 

In addition, I left my post as bartender with my dear friends at Marination ma kai to assist with the new restaurant opening of Agrodolce in Fremont for James Beard Award-winning chef Maria Hines.  You’ll find me there as a dinner server four nights a week pimping beautifully crafted southern Italian cuisine. 

Stay tuned for posts regarding my travels to Spain and what is happening in the world of opening a restaurant & bar.

It feels great to be back on the world wide web.  Here’s to a healthy, enlightening and prosperous new year for everyone!
