Default Today is my last day in the bar business

Today at 6 PM we're shutting down our hotel and bar. Most of the guests in the hotel were checked out yesterday, a few remaining stragglers will leave today.

The bar will remain open until 6 PM, or when we run out of booze... whichever comes first. We'll see how good at I was a judging how much inventory to have on hand

The good news (for me ) is our lawyerss got the check from the City yesterday. so the deal proceeds and they take official possession Dec. 15.

We now have two weeks of "garage sale" to sell of any equiptment, furnishings and sovernirs people may want to buy. And to gather all the paperwork we have to keep for the government, and to clean out whatever junk we have to toss.

After that I'll have 2 weeks to wait until the CruiseMates New Year's Party of the Century... to really celebrate my being unemployed

I hope it is an easy transition for you. It must be sorta hard to say goodbye.

Kuki, you probably have lots of mixed emotions today in closing up the place after all these years. The next two weeks will go fast selling the equiptment and "stuff."

Good luck in the future to whatever you chose to do.

See you on the Century and Liberty

Kuki,
Whatever you decide to do I wish you the best success. Have a great time on the Centyry/Liberty cruises and relax.

A day of conflicting emotions, no doubt.

The overriding one, I hope, is. . .

A New Beginning.

Regards.

Wow Moose Man,
What a milestone for you today, both happy and sad...you've been in that business for a long time and now have to look forward to something new and exciting in between those cruises.

The place is CLOSED!!! Funny.... not a sad moment at all when I locked a door that hasn't been locked from the outside since probably 1915.

Today was actually kind of fun with some of the regulars offering to buy some of the paraphenalia around the hotel. People walking out with bar tables, etc.

Next week we'll be there for a few hours each day, getting our paperwork straight, and having a big garage sale.

Congratulations Kuki, on your unemployment! (Does that sound weird?)
Glad all the hard part is over, now you can breathe a little easier and enjoy the Century cruise. Speaking of souvenirs, James could use one of those "Tux T-shirts" for the cruise, since he won't let me buy him a real one!

Kuki,

I remember when the TV show, "Cheers", went off the air. A bittersweet ending to a wonderful time. Your's probably feels a little like that as well.

But talented people have a way of being successful in future endeavours, so I know you'll do well.

Enjoy your upcoming cruise -- on the ship, and through life!

Dean

Hi Kuki,
It can be sad to leave the past behind but also exciting to start a new adventure. Good luck on your new adventure and enjoy that cruise.

Kuki....getting ready myself to close a business January 2007. Lots of mixed feelings...but the prevailing one: Excitment... The ending of one path and the start on a new one...

Happy journey!
