Well, that Wednesday plumbing inspection became a next Wednesday plumbing inspection, then slipped to this Wednesday, each time because of some ridiculously minor problem our plumber found with the way our Schedule B (you don't want to know) shows up online. Our architect (and, for the most part, we) think our plumber is jerking us around, and has called him any number of colorful names having to do with female reproductive organs.
BUT, (and here's the good news), we really, truly have an inspection scheduled for this Friday, after finally ridding our Schedule of anything that could provoke as much as a tremor in our plumber's fragile body. Inventory, insurance, a letter of no objection, and our liquor license will come early-mid next week, and we'll open a day or so after that, we vow. The place is clean and we've taken down our paper, so people are welcome to come by and have a look if we're around before then. I'll keep you updated as we complete the final steps of our marathon. Thanks for sticking with us.
