Well, it's been just over six months now and Lucky is thriving, with the much-appreciated assistance of beloved regulars and supportive friends. Each month has seen more profits than the previous and we are very much looking forward to the next six! The staff has (finally) fallen into a somewhat predictable schedule, which should prove a benefit for us as well as our customers. In the new year, you can look forward to a few exciting new additions:
Music Mondays - The East Village is home to some wonderful live music and Mondays seem to be particularly popular. We've decided to join Rue B, Mona's and 11th Street Bar in programming music on Monday nights. Expect mostly acoustic singer-songwriter type stuff, with a few oddball offerings tossed in for good measure. Mondays are also Marathon Happy Hour Mondays, so you can take advantage of the music and the two-for-one drink and draft beer specials!
The Penny Project - Inspired by the beautiful bathrooms at House of Yes, we've been planning on "paving" the bathroom walls with "good luck" pennies. We've ordered glitter grout from the UK to seal them in. So look forward to that!
It's A Sign! - Bars can always use additional signage! We've ordered a neon LUCKY sign for the front window and received the Lucky logo in neon as a Christmas gift. Let there be NEON light! Also, our dear friend Tamsin is visiting from Barcelona and she is sketching ideas for better (and hopefully more easily recognizable) bathroom signage.
Garden Improvements - When the weather warms up, there will be more improvements made in the back yard. Plants! Better lighting! And hopefully a more functional canopy. Those warm nights can't come soon enough!
A Full Jukebox - Our uber-eclectic jukebox has been a work in progress. We're hoping that we will have all 100 slots filled soon! Stay tuned!
More of YOU! We are so pleased to have become "the favorite bar" of so many wonderful people! Where've YOU been? Stop by and say hello. Maybe you, too, will love it here and become of our regulars!
