It looks ever more likely that tonight will be the last night of Austin Cantina in its present configuration. I am too far behind on bills and taxes to make it through another January, February, March, April like 2008, and all indications are that the coming year is likely to be tougher on consumers than the last year, and therefore tougher on consumer businesses like this one.
I feel so good about so much that we've done here, it's a difficult exercise to guess what we might have done differently that would have allowed us to continue. I have many ideas about what we could do differently next time. I will spend the next 2 weeks thinking about I'm going to do next.
The photos in this post were taken yesterday, before the BIG snowfall today. I thought that when I left the midwest in the late 80's I was done with people shoveling driveways and the phrase "wind-chill-factor".
Everyone think good thoughts and have a great holiday season. I wish you all the best and look forward to keeping everyone informed about what I'm doing next.
