Another Step Closer
For those of you who haven’t gotten wind yet, I bring good news! The bank finally approved my business plan and we’re a step closer to our Book Bar! I say “our” because it’s your book bar, I’m just doing the heavy lifting for you…for us… and all those who want to read-write-DRINK!
Yesterday, I looked at a few more spaces for our awesome bar, and I fell in love with one particular spot. I won’t disclose info on this location yet, but just take a gander and this space! Incredible, right?! Man, look at those high ceilings and those grand windows. Gorgeous!! Do you likey??
I can already see you there sipping on your wine and nibbling on dessert while sharing profound conversations about life and love with your bestie. Or reading 50 Shades of Grey while enjoying your shrimp cocktail paired with a chilled, crisp, white zinfandel. Or perhaps partaking in a cappuccino after a late night movie with your squeeze. Either way, my book bar is your book bar, and as long you keep it classy, you can do whatever you want!
I’m obviously very excited to be one step closer to having the book bar become a real live place, instead of this phantom (yet fantastic) vision parked in my head. But truth be told, I’m a little nervous! This is actually coming into fruition. Who’s the one who’s going to pay the bills on this place, issue paychecks, and do all the reprimanding?? Me! YIKES!
The fruit of my labor is actually ripening. I’m going to build a book bar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not to toot my own horn… but I obviously think that combining a glorified coffee shop, bookstore, and wine bar is simply genius (toot-toot). Can I get a “Mmmhmmm, Sistah!” I mean, does it not seem like the next evolutionary step to social society? How is it that someone in So Cal hasn’t already created this!? Well, luckily for me they didn’t because its gives me the chance to be the first!
Thank you all for your moral support and for sticking with me on this journey. Moving forward, the tasks at hand will become even more challenging, but much like everything in life, it’s a process…or, it’s a box of chocolates. Growing is pushing far beyond what you think your limits are. So push People…push yourself and you’ll be surprised at how much you grow.
