    Because of your generosity has helped us afford actual quality management to work run+grow+MANAGE this restaurant for me, and I can sit down with your party of 4 for your entire (covered by this reward) meal. Tell you ALL the stories of what we've done, how we did it, hilarious anecdotes, potential cooking secrets, order for you and more than likely order more food (if not off-the-menu stuff) than you originally ordered.

    There might be a shared recreational beverage or two as well (btw, I don't normally EVER drink on the job), and I can't commit here because of pesky Kickstarter "rules" BUT I'll definitely consider it ^_^

    For supporters as crazy (in general+about unicorns+Starry Kitchen) as me, I'm willing to get 5 limited edition permanent Unicorn (aka the National Animal of Scotland) TATTOOS on my left inner forearm that will include a caricature of YOUR FACE on a body riding that same very UNICORN. If there were ever a way to bow down to you for your tremendous support, this is MY way of saying "Thank you!"

    While a fun joke at bars, it's not a joke that I love unicorns, and being able to tell people great stories of how I "sold my body" for unicorn tattoos that helped make our restaurant dreams come true is just another plus... HUZZAH!
