Krimo's Next Generation...

Our son, Adam has been in the restaurant business with us for as long as he can remember. Once at the tender age of four, back in 1985, he entertained the diners with "When Santa got stuck up the chimney..." on his plastic guitar, on the first and only time we opened the restaurant on Christmas Day.
He has managed first Krimo's and then Casa del Mar for the last nine years and now he has sprouted wings and feels he needs to do something on his own with his parents' blessing and a bit of pocket money.

He is opening...wait for it... A Movie Café...
A What??
A Movie Café. After much research, he came up with the name of Flix Movie Café. A place where one can watch DVDs, dine and drink with family and friends in relaxed surroundings, right here in the heart of Hartlepool.

As with many projects of this kind, the completion date has been a moving target but he now feels confident enough to plan on opening the doors to the public by the end of next week.

For the last two months, I have forced myself to take a backseat and watch him manage the project, helping out only when asked.
I couldn't resist for long so I donned my thinking and graduation cap to come up with the logo and website.
Karen also helped out, picking many of the colours as, unlike me, she can tell the difference between violet and lilac.

So, this is the start of the next generation! Good luck, son!

La génération de maintenant est pleine d'idées novatrices et révolutionnaires. Elle n'attend que le parrainage des parents (encouragements moral et financier).

Bon courage et à d'autres succès.

Krimo said...

Eh ben oui. Cela sera son héritage. Espérons que ça marchera, surtout en ce moment de crise.

Great idea, pass on the very best of luck in the new venture from Andalucia!

Krimo said...

Muchas gracias, CR.
Yes, it is a novel venture that a young man like our Adam will hopefully turn into a success.

PI said...

An unusual idea and I hope it works out for him.

Krimo said...

Very unusual, Pat. They're becoming very popular in the US. And we usually follow suit.

Quand l’heure est venue ,l'oisillon devenu grand quitte le nid , le bonheur des parents est de constater qu'il sait voler de ses propres ailes !

Je lui souhaite tout le succès et le bonheur possibles pour la suite !

Krimo said...

Crabbers, je l'ai poussé du nid...;o)
Merci beaucoup pour vos souhaits.

Zéphyr said...

Le nid des parents est tellement douillet que c'est toujours avec grand regret qu'on le quitte.

Krimo said...

Eh, oui. Moi je l'ai quitté à l'age de 16 ans pour l'internat d'abord, Alger et puis l'Angleterre.

Sweet ideas! Thanks for posting. When I was looking for new kitchen cabinets I went with these guys. Great prices and selection.

I needed to find some public records online and this was the first place I turned to. They are great in their field.

Thanks for the helpful info. When I learned about getting a sober coach it changed my life.
