“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
I can't count all of those who have made a difference in our lives in helping to get us going. When we knew the golf course would not be opening until spring, we decided to move forward with our restaurant and driving range. Seemed easy enough, right? Not even close. This retired educator had much to learn, but, thankfully, I had some help along the way.
I have met so many along this journey whom I could not have opened Big Amp's Bar & Grill without them. Valencia guided me through one of the most difficult parts of this journey in acquiring an ABC license. I could not have worked with a more compassionate and understanding woman who helped guide us in the appropriate steps. Alicia helped me through the process of health department licensing. This process was so important in educating me, as I want to make sure I offer the cleanest and safest food experience. Numerous others helped us order food, get the appropriate equipment, I mean I would never have made it without this small army who guided us along the way.
So, next time you're in Harpersville, AL, stop by and have a bite to eat or drink. We will not disappoint!
