It is official: The Kitchen has been warmed

It was quite a weekend here in western edges of the Enchanted Mitten. On Friday night we were overcome by ghouls, ghosts and goblins... and a few trick-or-treaters. The weather could not have been better for Halloween. As the sun was setting there was not a cloud in the sky and it was a balmy 50F. We had a smaller crowd than last year, but I think that is the direct result of Halloween falling on a Friday, which also happened to be the first day of the state high school football playoffs. Most of the trick-or-treaters were younger than high school age. There were, however, a lot more parents out this year than last. All in all, it was another safe and sane evolution in East Grand Rapids.

As for the kitchen being properly warmed, last night was our Kitchen Warming Party. I am happy to report that the event was an unqualified success. We had an eclectric
group in attendance. Friends, neighbors and co-workers came by to check out our new kitchen, and we were able to give the space a proper send off. We went the "slacker" route for the food. We bought pre-made party trays, but we took seriously the need for good beer. We purchased a 1/4 bbl of Bell's Amber and it was clearly well received. We still have some beer left in the keg, so if you are in the area, please feel free to stop by and wet your whistle!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend in every way. Glad the party went well. Wish I could have been there to leave a fingerprint or two on the new stainless!

I've got to agree with John. No update in nearly a week? Well, that's downright rude. :-)

Enjoy the weekend in The Pointes. Stop by Bubbie's and say hello.
