The Making of Tangia- Grand Opening

Five months of blood sweat and a lot of tears (to be honest), Tangia had its grand opening September 15th, 2012.  The Ambassador from Morocco was the appointed ribbon cutter.  I had made the ribbon a bit too decadent with a few layers, so he struggled to cut through.  There were a few awkward glances being cast my way by the hotels general manager, so I went over to help but he had just finished cutting through on his own thankfully.   I was introduced to the ambassador over dinner and he said he felt at home being in the restaurant which was a very kind praise.  

Prepping for the first dinner!
