As I sit at the bar on a Friday night at 2am, after everyone’s gone, the floors swept, the last rack of dishes clean, I can’t help but think that the opening of FA last week was a complete miracle. More than one customer has mentioned that from the looks of things 2 weeks ago we had another month-easy-before we we opened. I agree completely. If it wasn’t for a chance meeting a few months back of a contractor and his crew, we’d still be whipping the donkey of a construction crew we had working on the space. From the uncomfortable moment we kicked the Wall Construction crew to the curb 2 weeks ago the burden of uncertainty and frustration melted away. Even when we looked at the complete mess they left it still felt freeing. Like we had a brand new shot at making this thing work.
I need to say thank you to Sonny Inc. for saving Fat Angel’s butt. In 7 days, Sonny and his crew did the impossible and took a total mess and cleaned it up, working nonstop to get our doors open by February 1st. Looking at the space now in all her glory brings a smile to my face, seeing what once was a vision turn into a reality is somewhat surreal and all the more exciting.
So we’ve finished day 9 and are stoked at the reception the community has given us. People have been watching and waiting for us to open and are coming in droves to take a seat at the FA bar. We couldn’t be happier at the response from everyone. Early mornings and late nights are part of the deal but seeing this place take on a personality of its own is quite fun to watch.
We’re here waiting for you to swing by so please do. Our hours are M-Th 5pm to 12am, F-S 5pm to 1am, and Sun from 5pm to 11pm. We will be starting brunch in a few weeks so stay tuned.
Thanks again for all your support!
