I thought I would take a moment to come up for air and share what we've been doing behind closed doors. We moved into 55 3rd almost a month ago already! Time is flying as we continue chipping away at our to do lists. Which is long but we are feeling pretty accomplished!
First, I just have to say Thank you!
All the support the community has been showing Frank and I has energized us to get up everyday and make this dream a reality! We realize we have a lot of work to do but we are driven and so happy to be given this opportunity. We have made so many new friends in local business owners and fans near and far. We feel unbelievably loved.
We have been meeting with local businesses and have added some great names to our Takk House family. We are so grateful to have some awesome contacts to share with you who will help make your celebrations even more awesome. Dinosaur BBQ stopped by for a visit and we are so excited to be offering their catering as well as many others! Our vendor list just keeps growing!
Our email inbox has been flooded with people inquiring about using the space since the day we announced the closing. Which has us so excited! We are happy to say that in the next few days we will be breaking out our calendars and starting to schedule some walk throughs with those of you who have been waiting patiently for us to get things in somewhat working order. Our very first events will be as soon as this Fall.
Here is a quick recap:
We are currently working on our food prep space, office/green room area and 3rd floor bathroom facilities. We gave food prep a nice pop of color and brought in some new appliances and working areas. Our office also got a fresh coat of paint and some fun furnishings.
The 3rd floor bathrooms are still a work in progress but we have hopes of wrapping that project up by the end of May! We removed some massively heavy urinals from the walls and are going to be bringing some much needed TLC to this area. This bathroom was in the worst shape. It has not been in service for some time.
Also we have a somewhat sign now. At least it tells people we are here! When we start working on fixing up the outside a real sign is in our future. The window sign works for now!
A very special shout out to our families and friends! Holy moly you guys are the best. Without you we'd still be on our first coat of paint. Thank you for believing in us and our dream. Thank you for climbing a TON of stairs. Just thank you for everything. Takk!
Just a reminder that we will be holding an open house. We have high hopes that this will take place in late June or early July. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook or get yourself on our mailing list for that announcement! It will be invite only. You don't want to miss this celebration!
