river city eatery.

Okay, I'm going to give it to you straight...

Today was my last day as a secretary for Windom Area Schools because I have decided to follow my ultimate dream...I'm opening River City Eatery.  I know, I'm excited too. 

Besides being closer to family, this is why I wanted to move back to Windom...to open the kind of place that inspires merrymaking, good times, entertainment, celebration, "where the locals go," to tell stories, make stories, to get to know people, what they want, how they like it and make sure they get it, you know, that community get together...the 3rd place that every community needs and deserves. 

Really, I don't know where to start with this post because there is so much to fill you in on and I will, I promise.  I'll keep you posted on all the construction, the menu, what to expect and, well, as much as I can until you can experience River City Eatery for yourself. I hope you are as excited as I am. 

I guess this is a big reason as to why my posts have been few and far between these days...I've been busy working on getting to the point where I can put this dream not only in words on my blog, but for it to become a reality on the downtown square in Windom, Minnesota.  But it is real folks...wow, let me say it again because it gives me goose bumps...River City Eatery is real and it is coming your way Summer 2011.  

Cheers, Windom, good times are here again!

**more to come on River City Eatery.  Yup, you read it right, an eatery right here in river city.
