Thank you Kickstarter backers!
We are nearing the completion of the projects you launched with your support for Butter Bakery Cafe's big move. And as a way to recognize the end of the construction and to honor your part in it we are setting aside December 12 (12/12/12) as your day! Drop by the shop next Wednesday to pick up reward items, be honored, taste some new treats, to connect with other Kickstarter supporters and to see what you have created!
I realize that this day won't work for everyone (thus the skype tour with my daughter studying in Stockholm this fall) --- but I hope many of you can stop by sometime during the day to check in with me. Feel welcome to stop by anytime now to pick up mugs, tumblers, shirts, or other project related rewards. I am sending off the reward coupons today as well.
We have already shared some birthday cupcakes, delivered office sampler boxes, begun sampling out ice creams, and tomorrow host our first evening party. Our first internships are nearing their end, groups are putting our community table to use, brunch is packing a weekend crowd, and oh, my, it does look great.
There are still a few small details in action (as there will always be), but it sure is great to be open and settling into our new routines here on Nicollet. As I look back on our kickstarter video from this summer where I stood in a big empty shell of a space, I am both amazed and grateful.
thank you - see you on the 12th!
