To be very honest the bars and restaurants around here have really struggled with the restrictions from COVID-19. So last Thursday I really wanted a Philly Cheesesteak and headed off to a sports bar we frequent quite often. White it was not crowded, I sat at the bar and was greeted by the owner who was working because the regular bartender who just had a baby and was on leave. One thing lead to another, her hours were divided up but he needed someone to tend bar on a Thursday afternoon.
I tended bar, waited tables, want to take a chance on me?
Friday morning him and I met for my training, putting food orders in to the kitchen, changing kegs, ice and cold beer to the front, drink dispenser, most of which I already knew. Keno register, cash, cash out or it will not open. Almost 95% people pay by card, makes it much easier. Worst thing for me was setting the TV’s, have to be all sports stations. No news, politics or Judge Judy.
Must have done pretty good as all the tables I waited on were happy, FireBall Friday and made them happy to which I balanced at the end of the night. Wore my girls, hey why not ole girl has to show off and even had this cute little guy come in. Hey good looking, what you drinking?. Woodford on the rocks?? Later he told me this ole red had some good comments for an old lady. He laughed at me when I got home, the liquor tasted good and the bartender was fast.
Think I am going to like this. Just need to get out even if I have to wear a mask.
