It's all MINE!!! Mine I tell you.

We finally got a grasp on what all we have. In order to have the kitchen professionally pressure cleaned, we had to remove all of our dishes, hotel pans, and smaller equipment - which meant hauling it all upstairs. Having everything organized in one place finally lets us see what we've got, and what we need. One thing I can tell you, is that I don't need any oval plates. If you were thinking "hmmm- I bet Noah and Mir could really use some oval plates, and therefore will send them a few thousand" ... think again.

Also, the first beer ever to be drank at Barley and Hops Tavern is Lagunitas Pale Ale. It has nice grapefruity notes from what are probably expensive noble hops.
