the end of a big week for the fit out, with most of the building work to the main room now done. Final fit of the lights that look amazing (thank you Alan and Steve). We drove past tonight and could not believe how good it looks in the dark.
Charley has done a fab job with the walls, and we think you're going to love the effect created.
we had the Black Goo crew in for training today - Dilly and Sach did a great job going through all the essentials before Darren finished the day with barista training. A great team is so important to any business, and we're thrilled to have the BG crew onboard and sharing our excitement for our new venture. Dilly laid down the (fashion) law, as only a true fashionista can lol.
So now it's down to the final push and the big clear up - wish us luck....!
Feel for anyone stuck in traffic due to the closure of the A41 whilst they've been doing some filming in Tring today. We're still not quite sure who's filming, however the local grapevine included Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and the slightly less glamorous... Some new ' ITV drama'. In case it was any of the former three, Sacha has had bath, cleaned the paint stripper from her nails and splashed on the Chanel No.5...
We took advantage of the captive audience of standing traffic on the High Street to advertise the forthcoming opening....
Nice to enjoy the last Mother's Day in relative peace and quiet of our own home - fire on and slow roast lamb shoulder doing its thing in the oven. It's all going to change for us in a couple of weeks - next year will be Mother's Day brunch specials 😊☕️🍾🍰...
Lots of building progress since the last blog, and two big weeks ahead as final fit out takes place.
We've been talking to some great suppliers - one of the best things about being independent is that it allows us to source different products from people (many local) who are passionate about what they do and the providence of what goes in to their products - looking forward to sharing these with you soon - yum yum....
Enjoy the rest of your Mother's Day! Love from Black Goo xx
we've had so many positive comments and responses to the job ad in the window. Thanks to everyone who's been in touch
Thanks to Tring signs and Jo for the fab art work
