6am. GQ Magazine announces their 2012 Ten Best New Restaurants in America. Ruxbin makes the cut at #9. We. Are. Floored.
10am. I get a text from Jenny: “A guy had a tripod setup taking photos of our storefront, asked who he was shooting for and he said ABC. I was out in my pink socks and crocs too.” And yes, he glanced at her feet and gave her a funny look.
1pm. Jason and Ed haul up lumber to the Rooftop, work on the Garden begins. This year’s goal: triple the garden size and have a bee hive.
5pm. Family Meal. The crew goes festive and makes carne asada, fiesta-style~
5:15pm. We bust out the celebratory GQ Cookies.
12am. Service is over, clean down is finished. Ed sits with the staff and says a few heartfelt words as we pop a little bubbly to celebrate and wind down the night.
Thankful to our guests and staff for another great night. May we always continue to Push.
