We're open from 7am-Midnight weekdays. OK, not quite...

I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery.
When I got there, the guy was locking the front door.
I said, 'Hey, the sign says you're open 24 hours.'
He said, 'Yes, but not in a row.'

Shultzy's is now open from 7 am to midnight weekdays, but there's an important asterisk. We're actually not open from 10 am-11 am, so our "real" weekday hours are 7 am-10 am and 11 am-midnight. Our hours on the website and the restaurant now reflect that, so we don't disappoint the occasional customers who show up at 10:30 to find a "closed" sign in the door.

What do we do during that hour? Accept deliveries, prep for lunch (onions and peppers don't chop themselves), tidy up, update the beer menu, go shopping, and the other gazillion little things that we can't do when we're focusing on our customers.
