"and time keeps marching on to 2013....."
Well, let's see...where do I want to start....there is so much to say, so much...
For starters, Da Kine's Hawaiian Catering had a wonderful year, better that I could have even imagined. Lot's of new customers, and a ton of returning ones. I am so humbled that words can't even describe what I feel.....how does one say thank you to so many people........just know that I am very thankful and honored that you chose to place your trust in me with providing you food for your special occasion and that I truly hope that I was able to prove myself worthy of your choice.........
The licensed location of Da Kine's Plate Lunches at Liberty Station in Pt. Loma closed as of November 30, 2012 due to lease issues. That means it's just me again.....maybe it's time to open a restaurant again....hmmm
With the economy as it is, (and don't get me started on this one....), I am very happy that we expanded our customer base and traffic by over 11% from the previous year. So, because of that kind of increase, I am not going to raise our prices again for the 3rd year in a row......."yaaay, woo hoo....party time....". MY Accountant says I'm a little foolish but I figure that I have a roof over my head, pay my bills, and keep food in my house...then I'm good with that. After all I don't need fancy things, I got my friends, my health, my family, and most importantly, my wife.
To those of you who know Belen, she is still "kicking". It's been a few years now, but she's still going and is still a "pain in my..."...well, you get that part. She is everything to me and that is one of things in my life that fuels me to work as hard as I do. I thank all who ask about her and send their wishes to her as well She is always touched that people remember her and I think it helps her to keep going. I thank you all as well and will always be indebted for all of your kindness......
So, without getting anymore "sappy", it's time for the recap.....
Da KIne's Hawaiian Catering........still here, like that favorite, beat up old toy in the back of your closet. You know the one...when you see it, you smile.....yup, that's us.....so...
Da Kine's,....still here,......still kicking.....and tasting good as well.....give us a call when you need us, we'll be here....really. Or you can just talk story....you know me, I ALWAYS like to talk story....
Aztec Football and Basketball...."very impressive"....Chargers....ummm,ahhh......Rams....getting better, way better.....UH football....growing pains....and finally...the Lakers...."get it together guys"
Let's all have a great year since the "Mayan calendar thing" didn't pan out....
