We stopped by Bier Station on our way home.
The place is sooooo close to being ready – John says before New Year’s. There’s a couple of city inspections left: checks that the coolers are set to the right temp – and their attendant thermometers are placed exactly so – and a kitchen walk through after the right trash receptacles are placed in the right locations.
John is a happy (if sleep deprived) man; he’s got a great staff due to receive excellent training this week. And Bier Station is coming together – upstairs he shows us the floor to ceiling 4 panel photo of a genuine Kaunas City east bottoms beer garden; the tables upstairs have all been hand-made to resemble those of a true Oktoberfest bier tent.
The buzz is definitely out: Bier Station has 1200 Likes on FB. Already he has a man who wants Bier Station to host his 40th anniversary celebration 1 and a young couple who want to hold their wedding reception there.
We’ll add that he has about a gazillion friends and neighbors who can barely wait to lift a glass in his place to toast his success – Prosit!
Enough with the sleep and home life, John – get busy!
