Good Morning!!! I have a few women that are going thru treatment. They walk into my joint....bald, bold and beautiful!! It shows the journey they are on. One of these girls are friends with one of my co-workers. The day my co-worker found out her friend had breast cancer she stood at the counter and cried and told me of her journey...we prayed for her friend. This friend is now a regular here.... we have prayed when she has bad days and we celebrated when her tumor was shrinking so much it couldnt be measured. Yesterday she comes in for lunch.... I always ask "Good day?", her reply was yes "Good day", she was feeling better from treatment last week. I leave her table and con't working. About 20 minutes later, my co-worker comes to me with tears streaming down and says "the guest on table 6 is buying my friend lunch, but he doesnt want her to know".....My guest on 6 had already left but my heart was singing and I too had tears. I messaged him on FB to express my thanks and these are the words I received back..."You are wlecome, I just wanted to put a smile on her face, its not a big deal, I just wanted her to know even strangers are pulling for her and praying for her and women like her daily". Welcome to the CIG, this is the kind of people that I have in my life everyday..... I talk about random acts of kindness, well it doesnt get any better than this. Happy Beautiful Tuesday yall, I pray yall all get to experience the best side of people....this is why I do what I do. What an amazing blessing.....my guest looked outside of himself and saw where he could make a difference in someones day, all I can say WOOT WOOT God is Good!!
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.
