That Kickstarter campaign paid off for Thank You For Coming, the restaurant experiment from Laura Noguera, Jonathan Robert, Jenn Su Taohan, and Cynthia Su Taopin opening in Glendale. With the collected funds, the team has purchased restaurant necessities like a refrigerator, freezer, induction ranges, shelves, and construction is underway. As a reminder, Thank You For Coming isn't your average eatery. It's a collaborative project in which Angelenos are invited in to cook, help manage the restaurant, decorate the space, pretty much pitch in however one sees fit. Considering the complicated intricacies in running a successful restaurant, this endeavor sounds well-intentioned but risky.
In any event, while the space is certainly not complete, owners are inviting neighborhood residents in on June 21 from noon to midnight for summer solstice hangout to preview the space, eat some food, and listen to tunes.
