  Yep they have been having some "soft opening" nights lately.  Was nice seeing all the people going there and walking by the shop as we were working on it tonight.

I'm sure you can always use some more $ for the museum.  How desperate are you presently.  I have sent a few donations in the past.  Speak up, get a few more TNFers to open their checkbooks.

Thanks indeed, we can always use a few more bucks.  Right now we are working on having a little event this fall towards the end of October to possibly create an "acquisition fund".

 Right now all my money is going into opening my shop (this shop is different from the museums shop) so am unable to plop down any decent sized chunks of money to purchase artifacts for the museum and I really want us to upgrade and broaden our display items.  We have some stellar collectors that have items on loan to the museum, but often their collections are specific, one type of deco, one or two types of items (this person collects one type of deco picture frames, the other cast iron deco lamps "not chrome", etc.) which limits what you can do.  Plus it's just easier all around when an object belongs outright to the museum.  Occasionally I will see something online and am like, aaargh, if only I had the money right now that would be sooo wonderful as a dispay item for the museum.  

 So, this next fundraiser will be to raise money for an Aquisition Fund so that we can purchase another Wow! would ya look at that! item for display in our museum.  Stay tuned, give us a couple more weeks to iron out the details, and keep your wallets ready lol.

Slightly back on topic... We feel lucky to be getting the space  for our shop at 6th and Boston at this time.  The Vault will begin to pull traffic further south on Boston Ave.  That will help us out a bit I am sure.  And hopefully since we are right next door people will see us, come by and check us out, and also then walk on up Boston to the other shops and such.  Our shop will be Moderne from Deco to Contemporary (need to work on a good tag line) so will also have some 50s Mod type stuff to play up the Vault.  May even take some photos of the vault and make some postcards and prints to sell.   Most of our stuff will be new items that will have that Deco to Contemporary feel, but we will also sprinkle in some fun, authentic "antique" moderne items as well, and of course my own Art Deco artwork.

I can't help there.  My musical talents consist of playing a stereo and I'm not so sure I even do that well.  A guitar case is out of the question.   Cheesy

The wife, kid and I went Saturday afternoon.  Good food, good beers on tap.  No Guinness.  (Bronx cheer)

The rooftop bar is very cool.  Enclosed in glass.  "largest panes of glass in Oklahoma" on the main floor.

It's all done up with a 60's style and is easily the coolest place in town for ambiance.

I didn't say anything about a guitar.

Menu looks interesting. I'm cheap so don't know if I'll ever go.

My only problem with that menu is the part at the bottom about serving Pepsi products. The dinner pricing isn't really out of line. Lunch pricing may be, but I don't often eat lunch, so I can't say for sure.
