My mom arrived this week. It's so nice to have the support and help of our family. Our daughters are truly enjoying having her with us and it's a pleasure to know that while we are busy working, they are in good hands.
Unbelievable, but true: September has arrived. Cooler evenings and shorter days. After long hours and hot days, we took advantage of the evening's cool breeze this week, to take a breather for a few minutes
and sit on our back porch for a bit and later on relax with a glass of wine on our 2nd floor porch overlooking Race Street. What a beautiful night in which to enjoy the evening's cool temperatures.
And then back to the grind. The bar is looking amazing! It took some doing, but all the grime is off, the polish is now on and we're well on our way.
Now, in order to meet our opening goal date of mid-September, we are making definitive choices on many levels. With our manager's arrival this week, we can truly make progress. We will be interviewing for many staffing positions on Saturday afternoon (4 p.m. - 8 p.m.), so we are sure to be busy, since we are fortunate to have had a lot of individuals already "self-identify" themselves as being interested in working at The National Hotel. It's going to be a busy afternoon.
