Remember when we went from janky to swanky? Well we got our liquor license go ahead! I fully believe you can’t have food without drink*. In fact some of my favorite foods are drinkable (porridge, congee and grits). I have deep respect for the craft and artistry of bartenders, but it’s still hard for me to get behind the term mixologist. Maybe drinkographer will work instead? Foodies get on that!
Restaurant construction not only depends on the physical infrastructure but also business and regulatory frameworks. Definitely work with your community and ANC, hire a lawyer and remember it’s a labor of stupid, crazy love.
* Drinks do not need to contain alcohol — I make a mean mocktail too!
