Since the end of the Riverplains dinner I’ve been focusing on Public House work. The boys are busy finishing up construction which means my side will kick in soon. It is amazing all the details that you think you’ve thought of that you just haven’t…Like for instance bulk toilet paper rolls and dispensers. Anyone? Not glamorous but definitely something that affects your experience.
I just want to think about how to execute a cool secret wine club and the best menu possible and planting the garden next year for garden fresh cocktails. Granted I have spent a lot of time thinking about all those things but then there’s about 15 things to get each one properly executed. The first priority will be the menu. It is finally finalized, but now I have to find the perfect 4 cheeses and meats for the charcuterie boards.
So, I have been calling distributors to set up cheese and meat accounts, (see right there, I navigated away from writing this because I remembered I was supposed to look up how much a meat slicer costs!), putting together barware budgets, and meeting with suppliers. It will all come together and hopefully you will be there and not even notice that there were many meetings, lists, and debates! You will just be happy, full of adult beverages and lovely bar food!
Here are some hopeful things that we’re trying to make happen:
Blackberry Farm Cheese
Beers you can’t get anywhere else
Eventually garden cocktails
Lots of house infustions
A wine club
Riverplains Spelt Crackers
Any other requests? What makes a bar great? What do you miss in Knoxville bars?
