Friday March 15, 2013 @11:25 AM - there was a cool breeze in the air, the faint cry of a crow heard in the distance and then there was the sound of thundering hearts as our opening staff prepared for the bridge to be lowered. A few customers were already waiting at the gates, and with a loud "Irrashaimase", it hath begun! Yes, the Coat of Arms officially opened for business.
The lunch menu consisted of linguini pasta, a mozzarella specialty sandwich, hand-made pizza and a nice hearty English curry. The pace was steady and Team C.O.A. was equal to the task.
After the big hand finished a couple more laps, it was time for our evening crew to rise and shine! With the Coat of Arms full opening menu ready and our servers eager to test their training, the dam began to leak with a trickle, which turned into a small stream and ended with a full on flood of amazing people. As they say, "if you build it, they will come." Well, we did and you did! And we love you for it.
Flowing Bass, Lowenbrau, Asahi and shots, shots, shots meant our bartender looked like he had 8 arms and at one point we counted even more than that! Our staff bent over backwards to try and make the night a success and to that we say to our team - thank you, mission accomplished!
And to all of you our valued friends and customers, we wish to say thank you for making it a special night that some of us will never forget and for others, they will never remember!!
