I smell like a hamburger

I have officially been disciplined to head immediately to the shower when I arrive home from FLIP every night. I smell like hamburgers. Although Rudy the Dog, (she likes to be formally addressed as such) doesn’t seem to mind as much as my wife.

FLIP is now open, just about a week now. We went from first to 4th gear right away, and for our first weekend cooked for over 1200 people. Of course this is good news. And for those of you who know anything about opening a new restaurant, it means total chaos behind the scenes.

We actually have one kitchen member designated to solely prepare sweet potato tots, which has turned out to be a process, to say the least.

I will be at FLIP every day this week. So please stop by, grab a milkshake or a cocktail, and say hello at my personally designed “burger bar”. Here, you can sit upfront with me and chef Mark Nanna. Please come with an open mind for colorful language !

Busy, busy, busy

Wow!  Been going non-stop since Thanksgiving.  Flip opened to about 200 people last night for a cocktail party.  Today is our first official day serving dinner.  I'll post a new schedule soon.  Come by Flip if you are in town!
