We just got new tablecloths at the restaurant. They're red, totally different from what we had. At first the GM could only see red, white, and blue and wasn't sure if she could take it. Yesterday she could only see red and blue.
I think they look great. While our place will never look small, they make the space feel more intimate. They also make the place look finished, or real. At other restaurants, I'm always comparing, and I often feel like our place is somehow not a "real" restaurant. Perhaps because I know how little I spent on the place (last month paying off the last of our loans). Perhaps because I own it and thus it is tied directly to my own feelings of self-worth. So I guess I'm feeling worthy.
