People you should know: John Saibic! Oh, and free dessert.

As many of you know – I have begun blogging about awesome people.    Because everyday people can mean so much more to the world than all of those who get the recognition.

May I proudly introduce you to:  John Saibic.  Here is his pic, it is a bit blurry.   Ladies, this is to protect you.  He is incredibly handsome, and super married.  I am trying to stop broken hearts here….

Hot, eh?

But beyond that – John Saibic is one of the most stand-up guys I know.  And stand-up in the old fashioned way.  Kind, funny, and never once has he said he was going to do something and did not do it.

I am privileged to have him as a friend.  And I owe it all to Ned.  Him and John have been friends from high school.     So I guess I kind of just “inherited” him too.  And I am so thankful for it, as is Ned.

When things are tough – John will listen.  And get it.  And then say something that will make me laugh or make me know I am not the only one having a tough time sometimes.

When I couldn’t do things because of the car situation – John was always there.  Not giving me a car – but lending us his truck.  Just dropping it off like it was the most natural thing in the world.

Because in my heart, I believe to him, it is.   He is that kind of a guy.

And it is rare.

Thank you, John, for being such a good friend.    We heart you very much here at MYOB.  I am sure your kindness has shined on others as well.  It is your way.  And that is why people should know you.

You are a dying breed, brother.

P.S.  We will be here until 9 pm tonight!  Come on in!  Say “John rocks” and get a free dessert!

Goodbye Restaurant.com! It’s been fun!

Just wanted to let you all know that we are no longer accepting restaurant.com gift certificates.  We have followed their procedure months ago, have made phone calls and sadly they just won’t take us off the site.

We loved meeting all you restaurant.com’ers and we sincerely hope to see you again very soon even without.  We really loved meeting you all!

But as many know – we receive nothing of the amount you spent on the gift certificate, and most of the time we were losing money by the time it was all said and done.

Part of starting a new business is trying new things, and we did with restaurant.com.   What we didn’t see coming was that many people only stopped in once a month when they could use another certificate.

I get this – it is a good deal and times are tight.  We just can’t keep doing it.  And we are sorry.  But remember, our prices are pretty darn reasonable – so again, stop by sometime!

Peace,

Barbie

Thanksgiving!

We have plenty of things to be thankful for!

And we want you to thank you all who have called for reservations – but we won’t be open that day.

We understand that many of you vegetarians are so tried of having a yam for thanksgiving dinner!

But we promise, because of this wonderful response, we will be having holidays here.
