Industry Slang

In every field of work, we all have a collection of words or phrases that are used amongst our peers.  These terms are used by those working in the industry to help communicate their needs, desires or to cryptically talk about a guest to a fellow worker.

Weekend Review: March 11th to 13th

Sorry everyone for not putting this up on Monday night.  Lets just say that this weekend took a lot of energy out of my body.  We were slammed, which for this economy, is awesome for the staff because they can pay rent. I think the theme of this weekend was making, or not making, a... Read more »

Weekend Review: March 4th to 6th

The National Restaurant Association did a study a few years back about the the length of time that people think they wait before being greeted at a restaurant.  Do you know what they found?

The beast within the beast...

I want to make a new T.V. show called "Servers of the Arena" and have them battle it out tossing plates, hot coffee and pens at each other.
So my friend Elizabeth gave me a great topic and title for my new post, “The beast within the beast”.  She had worked for a few weeks in a restaurant as a Floor Manager and wrote me an email about the fires that she had to put out between the staff.  I laughed out loud... Read more »
