Thank you for the outpouring of support and encouragement in respect to my new restaurant. You guys are the greatest! I just love bloggers. I could eat you all with a spoon.
I've gotten so many comments and emails with questions about my restaurant. I realize I kind of left everyone hanging, and for that I apologize! I especially must apologize to my sister, who called me after my last post demanding answers. "What?!? You bought a restaurant?!? How did you do that?!?" She even compared the shock to the time 15 years ago when I told her I was gay.
But now let me make amends:
"What is the name of your restaurant?"
You'll never believe this, but I was kind of in a time constraint when it came time to choose the name of my restaurant, so I chose to name it something that has worked for me before: The Jason Show
I know, kind of strange name for a restaurant, huh? For the restaurant world, this name is quite out of the ordinary, although I jokingly say that when I'm ready to turn it into a dinner-theatre it will be quite apropos.
"What is it like running a restaurant? I've heard it is pretty time consuming."
It has been a lot of fun so far. I've enjoyed making decisions on my own, and the customers have been great, although I've noticed that they get very impatient if their food isn't served almost immediately after they sit down.
"You are my hero. Why are you so frickin' awesome?"
I know. Let me use my favorite line from the illustrious Goldie Hawn, playing wealthy debutante, Joanna Stayton, in the best movie ever, Overboard: "Everyone wants to be me."
"Ohh Emm Gee, I'm so turned on right now, I just have thing for restaurant owners. Any way you can show me the dry storage room?"
Please. I'm a married man. Except not in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, North Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado, Montana. . . you get the picture.
"Can we visit the next time we come to Southern California?"
Of course! In the meantime, feel free to to visit my restaurant's website for a much better explanation that what I am doing in this episode of The Show.
Love you guys!
