08.24.2011 Renovation Updates

August 24th, 2011

There have been many people asking about when we are opening, the reason we have not set any dates yet is because everything is hinging on various city inspections. If one doesn’t pass, we can’t move on to the next step and we get pushed back again. Last week we passed one of the big […]

August 6th, 2011

It took 3 of us on rickety ladders, but we got the sign up! Boy, does it look good at night! Daytime Sign. Nighttime Sign.

07.04.2011 New Signage!

August 4th, 2011

After shopping around for several weeks, we decided we could do a better job on our own for cheaper. BEHOLD, our brand new signage! We’ll be putting it up tomorrow. Special thanks to our neighbors Jonathon and Rick over at AAA Digital Printing. Mmm, giant logo…

We’ve been picking up our equipment from a Sanford-and-Son type of operation for restaurants. This place is a sight to see, a fenced in yard and 2 warehouses full of every imaginable piece of restaurant/bar item possible. Utensils, ovens, tables, fryers, etc, this place has it all! The Restaurant Depot I wanna live on a […]

We’re rolling along here at Darwin’s. Here’s a peak at what’s going on! Welding the hood New Chairs! New Siding! New Paint!

Hooray Cushions!

June 2nd, 2011

The cushions for our chairs are done! Thanks to Lindsay, Akin, and Sean for spending an evening with the staple gun. They looks fantastic, sorry for the poor iPhone pic. It really doesn’t show what color they are very well, you’ll just have to come in to the restaurant and see them for yourself!

Check out our chairs! We are re-upholstering the seats with this great deep blue vinyl! View of our back patio.

Here are some pictures of the progress we are making at the bar.  Check them out and let us know what you think! The Back Porch Here is a shot of the back porch of the bar and what will be our Oyster Bar.  More to come on this area as we get closer to […]

I took these panoramic shots of the bar on my iPhone, but I’ve been having issues trying to pull images from my phone. I finally said, “screw it” and emailed them to myself from the phone. Much easier! Click on the image to see a larger version. I’ve picked out my reserved seat for the […]

We went to check out how the renovations were going the other day, unfortunately I forgot my camera but I was able to snap some pics with my crappy Nokia phone. Sean standing next to a possible mural spot. Our freshly lacquered wood floor. You can see the stage in the back. Still working on […]
