Partnership official!

The stress release has begun.  Thank you rye whiskey stash. 😁

Did you go to the levee to drink it?

I like to think you did.

Congrats GB, visiting your place is still on my bucket list.  I have recommended your place to several acquaintances that were visiting NO, and everyone that went could not give you and your food enough kudos. And it is looking like I may be able to get to NO in the fall.  😊

Fellow dad at kids school....we are in the mens club together and were watching football with a few other dads when my semi-buzzed emotionally drained self told them all how close I was to pulling the plug.   I had no idea he was a potential investor or even had an inkling he was in that kind of financial position...i was just pouring my heart out amongst friends.   He said lets talk.   We did.   He does this investing stuff for a living it turns out.

Luck?  Providence? Coincidence?    I dunno....but I do know if I hadn't have found him or something else by the middle of January I would have called it quits and used the rest of cash I had to pay my staff and any bills I could.   Craziness.

There is a great joke in here somewhere about a guy investing in another guy's meat while at the men's club, but I can't seem to put it all together....:)

 

Congrats. Hope to get down there sometime and try some of your BBQ. :thumbup:

BBQ coming back to the daily menu as well.   Starting Ash Wednesday.   Some of the healthy stuff the brewery was on me to change to will stay as well.   They actually balance off some of the high food cost with the bbq, so cool.   It is what I do...stick with it McClure.

So, on a day when a lot of people won't eat meat, you decide to do a reboot of BBQ???  Did you think this through?

It's New Orleans.  People may want to sin a little.

Weighing all our options right now but it looks like I'm going to close the restaurant for a little bit..... New Orleans seems to be one of the worst epicenters so far virus outbreak.   I'm fairly certain we're going to be on a hard quarantine soon anyway.

I sure wish I could pay my staff some extra money right now.  Ugh.

Maybe you can set up a little tip jar here.  People on this board have enjoyed you taking us on this ride with you.  It seems that every time it comes up, people are eager to help out.  Set up a place/account for us to tip your staff.  I know I'd be glad to help and you never know, it might go a long way to helping them through it.  Might even help you with some of the burden you're about to deal with.

So mayor hasn't shut it down yet.   She is hinting at measures coming, but so far we are good.

We are limiting hours though.   Things are weird.

Ohio shut down dine-in, but is allowing pickup-drive-thru and delivery. If you’re able to do something like that, it could hopefully allow you to stay open in a limited capacity.

Go ahead and support them.  Most of the problem comes with contact with the tables, chairs, etc., and the proximity to others.  The food itself should be fine.  Just wash your hands after you eat.

@tipsy mcstagger hey brother, tomorrow I’m going to blow up your Facebook page. I’ve never forgotten what you did for me during Katrina with that meal. I’m trying to push all of my coast guard friends to remember what our communities did for us during the shut down last year and I’m going to tell my Nola friends to pay it back to you too.

Lots more hand washing, glove wearing, counter and computer screen sanitizing, not letting anybody touch utensils or barbecue sauce or napkins or anything... And I quit sneezing into food
