Good Morning!!....Be the person you would like to meet.... I heard this awhile back and it has stuck with me. When I greet everyone at the door, I try to greet them like I would want to be greeted....way over the top and always with a "Happy___", whatever the day may be and I usually immediately get a smile or a laugh, sometimes a comment...."what is so happy about it" but usually it is joy coming from them and what it does to my heart I have no words for. Happy Beautiful Monday yall!! I was in Market Street yesterday, with every other person in Luboock, and I ran into so many of the CIG 's regulars. Every few feet I would stop and talk. The conversations were of the festivities of the day, what everyone was eating, where they were going or questions and kind comments about the new location. Shelby finally drags me from all of the conversations to the check out line...I look up to see another regular coming in the front door......She has been my regular since the day I opened...she is in a high stress very successful career and sometimes I think....she thinks I am crazy... she acts as if she has no time to waste on greetings just get her to her seat so she can get back to work. As she approaches I prepare myself to speak the right words and out of her mouth made my mouth drop open and my heart smile..."Happy Sunday...how are yall!!" and that was it she was gone just but her words and how she said them made my heart smile. As you go through your day be conscience of those you come in contact with...are you reflecting the kind of person you want to meet? It also gives a good chuckle when you tell someone Happy Monday!! it completely takes them off guard but it changes their mindset, if only for a moment.... words are powerful, use yours to make a person's heart smile and bring joy to their lips. May your day be full!!

I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
