The Basement

So we started tearing up the basement and putting in the bathroom and my office. In the back under the sidewalk that is our cave. Our wine cave. Imagine that all full of wine! Nice. The stairs to the street are pretty impressive too. This area will be a prep area with an extra bathroom for employees as well as for our guests when the upstairs one gets to busy. This area will also be a lot more funkier than the upstairs. A more mismatched yet organized, cool atmosphere that people can hang out while they wait for a table when it is too cold outside in the winter. Maybe some wine tasting down here too.
