Right in my little town a new locale is opening up, the space has been empty now for probably a year since the Butcher (yes it was a butcher shop) had to close its doors after something like 30 years. I’ve been over talking to the new owner quite often as I find the similarities between a small imbiss and a technical startup staggering.
It’s been an interesting couple of weeks as he’s been preparing, all the small details, the glitches, the things that simply were not thought of – what to do now immediately and what to do later once the thing is up and running.
From the mistakes made by the printer (wrong telephone number) to realizing a few days before the opening that there is actually no gas line in the kitchen for the stove and other appliances (like the Dönner Speiss grill) that require it. To of course the cool things happening and just falling into place like all the permits, permissions, deliveries and personal.
For us as a family it’s been interesting because the kids have gotten to see something change and take shape so quickly and right before their eyes and for us because we’ve gotten to learn a bunch of great new people.
We’ve not sampled anything yet at least nothing on the menu but the grills start tomorrow August 17th, 2009 at 11am right here in Eickelborn – Eickelbornstrasse 48 I believe is the hause number but you can’t miss it if you drive right through Eickelborn from Lippstadt look to the left side after you pass the old public pool (soon to be a Firehouse) and from Soest or Hoverstadt look to the right after the big Clinic.
If you decide to check it out because you read this please comment here and let me know what you think of the place!
