As our theme to "The Slide Inn' is going to be Mid Century Mod we found some artwork done by Margaret Keane during that time.

One of our tables from il Piatto contained a "secret drawer" that only some people knew about, others discovered it during their dining experience, but most did not.
When "The Slide Inn" opens you too can create your own memories if you discover the specific table where hundreds of messages were found.

Can you imagine a place called "The Slide Inn" that would not even have a fireplace,
Well we do. You might not be able to warm your toes next to it, but it does glow.
We have been hunting for treasures, and we had to buy this one.

This was just day one, but we sure got a lot done today!

We are officially closed as of today. I will post some pics of a  "Naked il Piatto" as we remove the heart and soul of what made il Piatto such a special place later today.
As we mourn the loss of il Piatto we look forward to a new beginning and what will soon be "The Slide Inn"

It's the big countdown with il Piatto closing in 5 days. That's right we close after dinner service on Sunday, March 18'th. After that I'll be slaving with the remodeling process which could take up to 2 whole months to redo what has been around for seventeen years.
The transformation will all be view-able right here on the blog site so keep checking back!

Managed to pick up an orange couch today, should fit in nicely. Also got a few of those vintage star shaped wall clocks. Hopefully we will be done in a month or so. Working on my menu's this evening, next comes our Brunch menu. Going to have Vegan waffles with house made lavender syrup, does that sound good or what?

No Going Backwards

Today is the first day we will begin to announce our intentions. It is a sad day as we know we can no longer go back, at the same time I am very exited about our ideas and prospects of the future. We have some amazing ideas about the food, decor and all the incredible beers we will have. It has been a very creative past month deciding on menu items and interior design and colors.
I hope you'll add us to the list of blogs that you will follow as I will be posting shortly daily blogs as the work begins. Our last day as we know il Piatto will be on Sunday, March 18'th, so please stop on in prior and you can see the amazing transformation about to occur.
