Had a 7:30 am shoot at the Buy For Less on NW Expressway this morning. Todd Fraser manned the cameras as we shot Chefs Sean and Cathy Cummings in the Gourmet Grille. We taped four segments, cooking everything from tuna to dessert.
Sean reports his Sean Cummings’ Irish Pub is doing outstanding business. He’s got a hit on his hands. The place at 9610 N May seems to be picking up steam since opening in August . Cathy said likewise for Vito’s, at 7521 N. May Avenue. She said they’ve often had establishments open at the same time, but rarely have both been going great guns at the same time. Good for them, they are lots of fun to work with and good people.
Took about an hour to knock out the four segments, about 90 minutes on site for set up and take down.
I drove up to Edmond following the shoot to check out a post I saw on Twitter: that Denny’s was so packed the person went next door to I-Hop. Worked well for both businesses. Denny’s aired a Super Bowl commercial promising America free Grand Slam breakfasts today from 6 am to 2 pm. And sure enough, the parking lot on Second Street was completely packed, overflowing next door to Old Chicago.
