My next project

Its not a bike!! http://www.martinisonmain.com/
Just bought this place for Klara and I. Klara will be running it. I will be drinking the profits. Its going to be a high end steak house martini bar. We should have it opened in about 3 or 4 weeks after we do some minor remodeling. Vcook is going to redo the website soon. Any of you amature photo guys feel like talking some photo's for the site? It also has a small room upstairs for small group meetings. (poker night)

+1 on the coke products. Pepsi will promise the world, then not deliver. Not only could you have a place to show bikes, but since you are using them as decour, now it is a buisness expense. Lonely Raven takes awesome indoor pics. PM him, his shots make rooms look huge.

Looks like a great place to eat....the menu is making me hungry.

Noticed a couple things for Cook to fix on the menu...
-Sandwich not sandwHich
-The Martini's Chopped Salad shoots from $7 to $17 when adding chicken yet the Steak House Chopped Salad os only $10? The Caesar Salad only adds $7 for chicken as well?

youre figuring the prices wrong i think...
the chop salad w/out meat goes from $7 to $10 with chicken, not $17

I am thinking that may be a good idea. We plan to do a few soft open days and have big discounts. There are 50 seats. i bet we could fill it up from the site and do like 40% off (this is a guess) to stress the new crew. I will try to dial that in as we get closer.

As far as coke goes that is klara's call. but i will tell her. i am sure she knows she has been in the buisnees since she was 12.

The menu on the site is not our menu. that is all the old owner. we hope to update it in a few weeks. It will be good steak, a few fish and pasta. small menu with a large daliy special menu.

thanks for the support guys!

I just spoke with Klara. CLSB soft opening is a go (as long as we fill the place 50 people min). 40% off everything at the bar and in the kitchen.
I will post a date in a couple weeks.

Greg please include my wife Mandy and myself to the soft open. The girl needs to be taken to a nice dinner after all the crap I have put her through lately. Soft opens are great for any buisness that deals directly with the public.
