My thoughts were full today.... I had 2 kitchen crew members in the hospital, down 1 waitress and a catering. I kept praying... Lord I know you will not give me more than I can handle . This amazing crew pulled together and we made it through, closing this morning for 1 hour to regroup so we could manage a successful lunch. When life is throwing the biggest hurdles, know if he brought you too it he will bring you through it. All 4 of the Stephens family was in the kitchen today & I realized I am to blessed to be stressed.... And BTW most of my girls are coming in tonight to help prep for tomorrow! Yep that about sums it up, it is who you surround yourself with and this CIG is pretty awesome.
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.
