A Big Mountain.

How do you go from 60 to zero!?  A big mountain suddenly appears in front of you and stops you dead in your tracks.

Almost 2 months ago, I last posted that “Construction is on Schedule,” and a few days ago, my pledgers received their reward vouchers and an update from me saying that we’re opening in 60 days.

To my horror, things have drastically transpired over the past 24 hours that have shaken my world upside down.  All construction work has ceased as of today.

-empty silence-





You know that feeling of experiencing a death in the family, and you wake up thinking that it was all a terrible dream…?  Well, that is exactly how I feel at this very moment.  I am in shock and disbelief.  Without tarnishing names, I can’t give details of what is happening, but I do hope that this is a short pause in the process, and that I can resume construction in a few days.

Just as the entire journey over the past year and a half in creating this book bar for Long Beach as been one full of big challenges, I am hopeful that this mountain will move.

To my future customers who have waited enthusiastically at the edge of their seats, I just want to say thank you for the support, and I will continue to be vigilant and insanely determined to get The Brass Lamp open!!

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” -Matthew 17:20.
