Opening day and beyond...

Well opening day at the Rodmay hotel has come and gone...which is the main reason I've not posted anything new.

I would love to say it all went smoothly but I would be lying. The last 3 days have been crazy...busy beyond belief.

I'm ready to throw my new grill out the window, if only I could lift it...but today was much better than yesterday and I'm positive tomorrow will be better than today.

Joan and Marion, the main hotel shareholders, together with many others at the hotel, were key players in getting Magpie's open on time. Thanks for all their help, we could not have done it without them.

And now....opening day video. Thanks Joan and Marion, it's lovely.

Good luck at the new location! Many, many years ago I worked at the Rodmay, and had many enjoyable meals there.

Wish I could have been there to celebrate with you. I will be home in a little over a week and will stop by for a good home cooked breakfast! - Margy

Congratulations! It looks great! Too bad it's a little far away to stop by for a home cooked meal.
