Wow, the weather has really gotten wonderful! At first so many Seattle folk were just enjoying the sun, possibly BBQ’ing at home, or going out of town and it didn’t impact business much. Last few days we have seen a significant jump in people dining outside among our flowers. I think it makes a big difference that the outside tree has been trimmed to allow sunlight though, but it does seem nicer to sit outside, and you can see our sign from across the street.
Another possible impact may have come from this mention in Nancy Leson’s Blog
“sample a grass-fed Cowboy skirt steak (or the "Texas Pot Roast" seen in its raw incarnation, in the photo above) at Austin Cantina” which appeared on Thursday morning without photo, until Nancy and her dining guests cam in that night to check out our counter service and noticed me butchering the Beef Chuck in the picture.
