Here we are in the slow time of year and we had a record night. The GM opened the gates about 5 minutes early, which is an extreme rarity for her. They didn't stop coming all night. The longest wait was an hour and ten minutes and we ended up seating people nearly an hour after we closed. They had been in the previous evening with a large group who were attending a memorial service. We called a few other places trying to get them fed and just couldn't turn away hungry people who had come from a funeral.
Although things were mostly smooth I did wish we had our group of Leo girls on the floor. We had three young women who had birthdays within a week or so of each other who gave amazing service and were insanely beautiful as well. They're all doing other things now, one works for a title company, one is in college and the other is taking care of her small nephew who has a deadly disease and wasn't expected to live as long as he has.
This is not to slight the people we have. They're just new and while the machine is running, I don't know that I would call it well-oiled. Under the circumstances I'd say they did a great job.
The GM's neck went out. Of course, it's Sunday and no options to fix it today and she has to be charming at our winemaker's dinner tonight. And I have to go now. Everything on the prep list marked, plus prep for the winemaker dinner and prep for our three course prix fixe.
