Bailey’s Restaurant

Baileys - Drawing

Have you ever had one of those moments when you can clearly picture something, but you just can’t find it anywhere? That’s what happened when I was developing Bailey’s Restaurant. Some of my Wolf Creek businesses are clear in my head. Others come from pictures I stumbled across in my online wanderings. For some reason, Bailey’s Restaurant had to be pulled from my brain. Being the brave sort (online anyway), I’m sharing my middle-school quality art with you, the visitor.

Bailey’s Restaurant is still coming to me, in some ways. I’m in the process of writing Bailey’s story right now so a lot about her, and about how her business came to be is still firmly entrenched in my brain. There are a few neat odds and ends that I’ve come to discover, and that I’ll gladly share with you.

Bailey is a recent graduate from culinary school, full of ideas and still somewhat untried in the world of owning a business. I want to say that like a lot of young people just entering their chosen professions, she still has stars in her eyes. But, I think that would be too cliché. And, in Bailey’s case, I’m getting the feeling that her bubbly personality means she’ll always be this way. Probably a good thing considering how small Wolf Creek is.

I think Bailey’s got one thing going for her right out of the gate – a great idea. Her restaurant will offer international cuisine, but only certain days of the week. Until she’s able to hire a full staff, Bailey will be closed on Mondays. But the rest of the schedule sounds like a lot of fun: (please forgive me if the novel comes out in a different order)

Tuesday – English pub fare

Wednesday – Italian

Thursday – Mexican

Friday – Chinese

Saturday – French

Sunday – Good ol’ American fare

Wish us luck, starting a new business is a large undertaking and Bailey’s going to need all the help she can get. Rest assured, though, the food will be nothing less than amazing!
