Moving on up

Posted on June 10, 2008 at 3:46pm 1 Comment

After a nice discussion with my boss, I will be moving into the role of sales and marketing manager of our company. The last year has seen tremendous growth and the current sales manager is also our portfolio director and doesn't have time for both. That means I will where 2 hats. Sales manager and Rep. I just hope we can continue this growth trend.

A month and counting

We have been open just under a month now and the reaction to food, wine, and service has been very positive. We are slowly carving our niche here. We've had people come in to give us a chance that only came once or twice before under the old owners and quit coming because of their previous experiences. They will be back again now which is always a good sign.

The kitchen is really starting to gel. Stephens philosophy of "high, tight, and sexy" is taking hold and the food just keeps… Continue

Getting There

We finally had a good weekend. Business is definitely picking up and we still have not advertised yet. If the weather would co-operate a little more we will pick up even more.

Last night was a beautiful site. Had a server sell 2 bottles to one table for a total of $400. a 2000 Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer - Tokalon Cabernet and a 2003 Spotteswood Cab. We also had one of the higher ups from Ultimate Distributors come in and bring the owners of Watershed in with her. People are taking notice… Continue

First Full Week

The first full week is now behind us. I finally had a day off and made great use of it by sleeping. Sales have been good considering we have battled the weather and spring break. Hopefull we will turn the corner this week. We have gotten rave reviews on the food, service and wine by all the guests we have had. Less than 5 complaints on food on the 700 people we served the past week. Things are definitely looking up. We are also expecting an AJC review this week which will be published the… Continue

It is 2:40 in the morning and I am waiting on my porter to finish up. This guy cleans all my floors and actually cleans my kitchen. I haven't seen one of these since I lived in New York. Nice to have someone here who takes care of so many of the small details.

I drove by just yesterday. Congrats on the new opening. I wanted to know if you would be interested in working with the Delta Skymiles program to get more exposure. They are our partner and we recommend locations to the members. It's a great traffic driving program with a bit more of an affluent base of people. Let me know if you would like to chat further.

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
