    Hi Blackford,

    Thanks for inquiring about where I've been. What a funny picture. Coincidentally, I've been working "under the hood" at Miami Beach 411, helping develop some new software systems for Michelle, Mirna, and Dylan. I am also producing a Key West Audio Tour App for tablets and phones, and a Miami graffiti tour for the buses.

    As Matt mentioned, yesterday we had lunch at El Corral. I was excited to hear about your new place and wanted to see it, right away. I was surprised the restaurant was so big. It was packed for lunch. We had a great meal, aside from the kitchen being slow. The food was good, the service was friendly, and the floor staff did a good job cleaning the tables, when customers left. Looks like you made a "wise" investment. =)

    Gus

    Anything to shake off the " fast food" misnomer. If you noticed, we don't have a drive-thru for that same reason.

    We're still in diapers and will be trying other things out in due-course.

    Like a wise owl, we're working the base, which has been eating it up so far. With the eventual x-over, Glenn has alrerady informed me sweet pickles don't go over well, and Matt I understand grew impatient waiting for his burger. I totally understand the grief.

    The pricing is outside my control, though it is below prices in Colombia. That is why it's important that our intitial staff of 56 at our 1st location is second to none. I feel that it is.

    As far as an investment, I hope Gus is right. My auditor will probably have nothing good to report for at least three qtrs.

    Anyways.... it's good to hear it wasn't Gus that got caught in that truck grill.

    Well Mirna has a great point that would be a nice perspective to shoot a tour video from.

    This isn't really an "only in Florida" story, in that I could see it happening in like Kentucky or West Virginia somewhere. Then again, like so many stories that COULD happen other places, they always seem to end up happening here.
