In his convalescence**, Nick has been updating this site with tons of photos of our work, events we’ve done and lots of cool things! Check out the Galleries!
The build out is still trundling along, albeit slowly. We’ve gotten some rough-in work done, but are still waiting to get the plans passed by Gwinnett. The architect and engineers keep missing things and/or doing things incorrectly. Every time we have to re-submit, it costs us 2 weeks. We are currently on the third submission (which got rejected), so do the math.
We will be making an announcement in the next two weeks about our situation and what we are going to do about it.
We know this place will be amazing when we get it open. We’ve got a great management team working and we’ll KILL IT when we get the doors open. We think you guys will really love it!
So, please keep an eye here or any of our other accounts for news!
We appreciate all of you! [Angela]
**Nick fell off a ladder and lacerated his fingers on his left hand and sprained his right ankle on May 2. The fingers got 37 stitches and the ring finger has a severed tendon to the top knuckle, which we can’t afford to fix in both money and down time. Please see the FB page for info and updates about that.
Our plans are in to Gwinnett county for vetting and we’ve passed the fire part of the plans. YAY!
We’re getting started on actually building this place out – FINALLY!
We hope to be open for you guys in May. Send tots and pears!
We think our Sisyphean efforts have finally reached the tipping point! Once we get our momentum, the build out will go quickly.
Thanks to all of you for your support!
Teamwork makes the DREAM work! [Angela]
Yesterday was the first day of demo work in the Pub space! First, the wood slats that once held retail shelving are removed. This will make the next step of removing the walls splitting the three spaces easier. Ceiling tiles are also getting removed, so we can see what need to dealt with up above.
It’s been many months of work to get to this point. First, there was lining up the money, when offers were non-existent. Then, looking for a location in a market with very little available. After that, even more time negotiating the lease.
Finally, today we have the keys to our future Arcade Pub location!
Next, things start to get real interesting.
Siteground chose to run its support via robot, so we’re out. They ALSO chose to keep our money for the prepaid VPS service.
We do not recommend them for ANYTHING. Hoping the BBB complaint will at least get our $200+ back.
Kualo seems to be an excellent host so far. Let’s see how long they last! (Our average host account is 3 years before they start to suck.)
