Today led us to San Leandro for the bi-weekly restaurant equipment auction. After doing loads of research on equipment over the past several months and the opening approaching, we were ready to start seriously looking AND buying. The auction warehouse was packed floor to ceiling with everything you ever thought you could use in a restaurant, walk-in freezers, floor mats, kegerators, rubber floor mats, double-door refrigerators, plates, laddles (yeah, we got a set of 6!), giant pots, outdoor chairs (we found a great set for people to sit in as they enjoy their espresso outside on a warm sunny day), and of course we bought a case of crab crackers which has nothing to do the restaurant but we never have enough at home.
Not exactly ready to open, but it was a start. Anyone know where I can find an under-counter ice machine?
