We’ve been pretty quiet at Slate of late — our noses have been firmly affixed to the grindstone. We are starting to see some daylight. Everything is coming together. This week we’ve been enjoying the transformative powers of paint, both inside and out. If people were wondering whether this was going to be a new place, our Slate Blue exterior should answer that! Drive or stroll by and check it out (if it wasn’t raining I’d go outside and take a picture – maybe later!).
We’ve had paintbrushes going inside as well and with every stroke the place looks and feels a little more like Slate and our home. We still have some floor work to do, mill work, various finishing projects, lighting, furniture, staff training, wine, beer and food orders, etc to get done. But we are well on our way.
What stands between us and opening the doors are details (some of them critically important), but we’re legally able to open when we are ready and we have the right team assembled to plow through the work that remains.
The investors will be getting a preview this weekend and some time after that, we should have an update on when we think we may open our doors.
