    Good luck with your Grand Opening.

    I'm guessing that the name Basho is a reference or homage to the great famous haiku poet Matsuo Basho.

    I'm sure this isn't a new idea but I wonder if a photograph can have or be an equivalent expression to a poem such as a haiku.

    Have a great opening.
