I’ll see how far I get with this.
It is 10.15 on Sunday morning and I have to be at the bar by noon. If it is quiet, I will try to finish this up at the bar.
As some of you may imagine, it has been a frenetic week to say the least, and by Thursday evening, we were as ready as we could be and I decided to have a ‘soft-soft’ opening on Friday, although we had announced the official soft opening for Saturday, 3rd.
I thought it might be a good idea to try out our computerised till system, bar service techniques and cooking abilities on real people, before the ‘big rush’ on Saturday.
And so it proved to be.
Our very first customers were two gentlemen from ISAN who were on their way to Pattaya for a long weekend and had read about Mobi’s on Thai Visa.
These two were followed by a slow trickle of various odd bods and we gave away our hot dogs and French fries for free as we worked on our cooking skills. This was followed by delicious baskets of popcorn and I have to say that all three culinary treats received many compliments from our customers. The French fries in particular were extremely tasty.
The small trickle of customers faded away at around 8 p.m. and we sat there for two hours in anxious expectation, but not a soul; so at 10 p.m. I decided to call it a day as after all – we hadn’t even announced we were opening a day early.
