The valet parking lot is devoid of snow, it has been swept and the fence around it, where it was hit by the town plows this winter, has been repaired and painted. We have most of our product in house including the crab that was picked yesterday. The lobster stew will be made today for tomorrows opening. The lobster meat for the stew was picked yesterday. Lobsters will be in later this morning. Steamers will also arrive this morning. We are on track to be completely ready by this afternoon.
I can't tell you how excited I am to have the season starting again. Part of it is that I can't wait to see everybody sitting in front of the fire. But I also am very much looking forward to seeing all our returning employees. Certainly a compliment to us as a business (having both). You know part of me would like to stay open all winter. But, if we did, I would lose the excitement I feel now. And, somehow, it wouldn't seem so special. Very much looking forward to having you here!
