O'Rourke's coffee/cake fundraising

, originally uploaded by doctorhectic.

This morning we walked down to O'Rourke's to contribute to the fundraising/communityraising/spiritraising effort. There were amazing baked goods and coffee, and the donations were flowing in from foot traffic and people driving by.

We spoke to Brian O'Rourke and he said that there were inspectors, architects, etc. coming today to assess and that was the next step in the "What's next?" process. There is no shortage of support for Brian, his family, and all the employees, but there are a lot of possibilities to consider. Brian kept mentioning several doors of opportunity opening to him, including many Main St. restauranteurs literally offering to open their doors and kitchens to him and anything he wanted to do.

I have joined the ranks of orourkesdiner.com, a message board set up to support and inform everyone interested in the phenomonon that is O'Rourke's. I have also started an O'Rourke's flickr group.

Unrelated, and on a personal note, I got a job yesterday.

Be sure to ask about the blogging policy at your new job! But before then, are you going share about your job here (I did get some info from S--F).

I have yet to ask about a few things, payday, blogging, etc. I don't think it'll be a problem.
