No Las Vegas Bar and Restaurant show this year! I get to stay home and stress out, freak out, geek out, micro manage, yell, scream and throw tantrums as I get the New Location for the Green Growler Sports Bar open. It is exciting to me that we get to stay in Downtown Denison and on Main Street.
Green Growler is so close to opening in the Katy Depot. Now I have to say that the support of my friends, my neighbors, and my patrons has been phenomenal so far. They are lending me their trucks to pick stuff up, driving and picking stuff up in Dallas for me that I bought at auction, and building out parts of the bar for me. We have paid people to repair things that I bought at auction, install refrigeration equipment, to do electrical and plumbing work at green growler, even building an entire walk-in refrigerator to keep 40 beers on tap. I wouldn't be able to open without all of these people pitching the way they have.
Although it seems possible that we could open any day now and that everything is coming together, except the money. Cash is flowing out faster now than I can bring it, but other than that we are good. We will be applying for the DDF Destination Creation Loan to Grant Program from the Denison Development Alliance.
Now you know why we have a Kickstarter page going. With all my friends old and new pledging just $25 we will have enough money to buy the under counter refrigerator we still need for the back bar.
For only $75, you can put your name on a chair or a bar stool. We are short 7 to 10 more table for the dinning door and every 6 to 8 chairs will pay for another table. We buy used restaurant tables and have them refinished for our bar, this way we are keeping it green.
We need of your financial support right now because we're dipping into the operations budget to finish our buildout. That is not a good thing with thousands of dollars still to be spent on the patio for lights, sound, and an outdoor bar.
