Mothership Update


Golldam Handicap ramp. Aside from last Sunday, when the Idiot Drummer helped me, I have been tackling this thing by myself. There are two problems with this scenario.

Firstly) I have to overthink every decision I make, because this isn't what I do, and I don't want to screw it up and

B.) There are just some things that are hard to do alone, like get slanted boards to be level to each other and fasten them down with only two hand. Add to that all the rain we've been getting and the other list of things that I have to take care of to open a restaurant, like buying tables and chairs and getting a coke fountain machine and building counters, and it makes for some slow going. But I'm pleased with how it is coming along, and I don't have a whole lot left to finish, just the bottom of the ramp and the rails. I've never done rails before, but then again, I've never done a ramp before and I managed to figure it out.

But I'm pretty sure that everything is going to be done this weekend. Which means I can get a cerificate of occupancy on Monday and open next week. And I've hired a secret weapon, a kick ass chef who was a dessert specialist for a long time. He is going to freelance for me, and the Mothership is going to have the Mother of all desserts.

Please, I invite you to come eat at my BBQ joint. Have dessert. And please, please, please frolick up and down the ramp on your way in and out.

UPDATE: I'm hiring, kitchen help and cashiers. Got a kid that needs a summer job? Know someone who was just paroled and needs beer money?
email me at mothershipbbq at comcast d o t niner, edgar, tango.
Must be willing to work for a knucklehead.

I know it's not a Nashville drink, but will there be SunDrop?? Best thing about BBQ in the counties along the Alabama border is that they serve SunDrop as a fountain drink! But Diet Dr Pepper is good, too.

There will need to be pecan pie and plenty of it.

There will also need to be t-shirts and such.

God, please open by this weekend so that I can bring my parents and then slip out the back door thus leaving them with you...

Er, I mean, so that we can enjoy your tasty meal together and thus become closer as a family.

Drove by your place yesterday during lunch, and you appeared to be hard at work on the ramp. Looking forward to eating there when you open!
