Thank you for joining us this Memorial Day weekend! It was very different from the past, but it was so good to see everyone and actually be able to say hi and catch up. It was heartwarming to have so many people supporting us by getting takeout and eating at tables and benches around town or taking their food out on their boats. You made this weekend great and we really appreciate you! 💗💗

Ok everyone this is going to be a long post...
Holy cow, thank you!!!! I don’t know how to thank everyone for the overwhelming amount of support we got from everyone today!! We never imagined we would be so busy today. Thank you Thank you Thank you!! We tried to do it with only two of us, it didn’t take long to realize it wasn’t possible because we had so many orders. So we called in the third person!! Also thank you for being patient. It’s a totally different animal doing these to go orders. We now have gotten a good system and realize we all three need to be there. So even if we have as many orders as we had today, the wait time should only be the standard 15-30 mins we usually have.
We loved seeing you all, everyone was so nice. Our customers are the best and so generous❤️
Also thank you to Sally and Dick for the generous donation to help us weather this “storm” it was so unbelievably kind 💗💗 I don’t know what else to say to convey our gratitude to all our customers!! ❤️❤️😃
