We signed the lease - 1025 N. Fillmore Here We Come!

So to some, a lease might sound like small potatoes, and I guess in the grand scheme of things it's just another detail.  But for us this has been such a long time coming.  We searched over a year to find something "within our budget"; and in Clarendon that's no easy task.  

We are just a block South of Clarendon Blvd. and very metro accesible from the Clarendon stop. If you turn right at the corner where Harry's Taproom and Le Pain de Quotien (LPQ) N. Fillmore st. and go through the stop sign on 11th, you'll see our space next to the Zoso flats lobby.

If all goes as planned, we should be open sometime in December.

We All Start Somewhere

You would presume that most of my family and friends think I am absolutely certifiably crazy to leave a great corporate career with a fantastic salary and bountiful benefits “during a recession” to open a business in an entirely different field. But, everyone in my life has been so supportive and excited for this, and I am filled with so much appreciation and love for all of you.

I have always been entreprenurially minded, and it doesn't help matters that both my family and David's are a very driven breed of people, who don't go down without a fight.

Having said that, AOL Small Business has decided to follow me on this journey of opening a small business in a new series called The Start Up. So here we go, hang on to your hats because it’s going to be a wild ride.
