Making final preparations in our now-gutted kitchen for new floors.


We’re Bullish on this idea…

CLOSURE ALERT: To accommodate prep work for the install of the kitchen flooring, we will be closing at 3:00pm on Sunday the 1st.

On Monday and Tuesday, we will indeed be using a temporary set up in the front lobby, so please be prepared for things being out-of-place a bit and goofier-than-usual-baristas! What the heck, we love a good challenge!

Construction Update!

Greetings all!

Just wanted to prepare everyone for possible early closures over the next week or so here at Zizzo’s. They’re starting on the floors tomorrow (Hurray!) and we may need to close early to accommodate the construction. We may, at some point next week, have to set up temporary coffee service in the front lobby area while the kitchen and back-of-house service areas are tiled.

The great news is that this is the final big project in our remodel and, once the floors are in, we can start “moving in” and get the kitchen, etc., set up and actually start having some fun!

Thanks once and all for your patience and patronage during this mildly crazy period. All the best!

Our Monster Mirror Ball is finally IN!! Thank You “Tower Glass” for removing a window to get it into the shop! (It wouldn’t fit through the door!).


Thank you Bob Rivers (Brown Ranch Manager) for lending a helping hand!

BUT – You can’t see it hanging yet. It’s under wraps until the big reveal!

Construction Update

Finally got the fluorescent lights out of the ceiling and installed the new LED track lighting. We’ve got a few more lights to install this weekend.

The bathroom is FINALLY getting put back together. Hopefully, it won’t be more than another day or so and we’ll have it up and running. Boy, talk about a MAJOR inconvenience!

The new floors are up next. That should (fingers crossed) be sometime next week. That will allow us to put the kitchen together and get the rest of the equipment and furniture installed.

Wow, we can’t hardly believe we’re getting close to finished! Whew!

Bar Tops!

Cool! The bar tops are taking shape!

The lighting is almost finished. The holidays slowed things down a bit, but we’re back at it. More news soon. Happy New Year, all!
