Let’s celebrate…

September 1, 2007

We had our first audience tonight. A nice crowd I must say. Very smart and very aware. We got such a warm response. Whew…We’ve been alone for a few weeks so it’s nice to add the crowd. Can’t wait for the weekend – especially Sunday when we are “open” officially.
