In the meantime, we've been reading the coverage on The National Hotel:
There's another story in the Hunterdon County Democrat paper which is yet to be digitized.
In the meantime, we've made tons of progress, from cleaning, to meeting vendors, planning the menu (food, wine, & liquor), and have received numerous visits from local residents who are excited & anxiously awaiting the opening day.
We are truly pushing ahead, taking into consideration all of the advice & tips that our friendly neighbors are giving us. A September opening seems very feasible, but exactly what date is a little bit trickier. We want to do it right & offer a product & level of service of which we can be proud & that will indicate to our friends & neighbors that we are serious about providing a comfortable, elegantly casual & friendly place for them to frequent.
Soon we'll be able to truly make this a reality...not just words!
It's been a long day & we are exhausted from all the cleaning, painting, writing, researching, etc., that's involved with this project. And yet, the exhaustion itself is exhilarating.
