Fruits of the Labor..

Things are taking a little longer than we anticipated but the finishline is quickly approaching! If you've ever had to assemble toys on Christmas Eve then you can appreciate all the time that goes into the entire preparation process. We're tightening all screws and disinfecting all surfaces. Our goal is to not only provide a kid friendly environment, but a clean one as well. A message will be forth coming on Monday with all the exciting details of our opening on Tuesday. I appreciate your patience throughout this lengthy process. We'll have a soft opening for the first month and a full grand opening celebration in the following weeks. I look forward to meeting your families.
