Lost power in the middle of dinner last night because some dipshit hit a power pole and took out the whole block. Was pretty much told "do what you can and get out of there if it's not back on in an hour or so".

Now I get to head up there this morning and hope that a) the power is actually back on, b) the surge beforehand didn't destroy anything expensive, c) we didn't lose too much product, and d) the money isn't hosed up because I didn't have any checkouts to rectify the drawers.

Pray for me.

Ugh. Good luck dude.

I like cookies.

Fortunately it looks like the power was only out for three or four hours, so we didn't lose any product. Still had to spend almost 90 minutes getting the POS to boot up, work correctly, and actually report my sales for yesterday accurately.

I will say this in defense of Aloha, on one of my first days using it I somehow managed to delete a credit card payment accidently, so I had a signed slip with the customers name and the last 4 digits of their cc# and my manager was able to find the original payment in the system and re-approve it.

It's a horrible name for anything really but especially a shirt.


I needed a reminder on who our patron saints were, so we can pray to right one, and found this article:

Appropriately enough, Google also autofill suggested "who is the patron saint of alcoholism?". Google knows what's up.

Anyways, *~thoughts and prayers~* to all my brothers and sisters. Maybe I'll get out before 2:30 am tonight. I will admit, it's a nice perk of clocking out of the kitchen at that hour that, while technically it's illegal to serve, if you help FOH put up chairs and clean up, you get infinite shots in a styrofoam cup (don't want the cops that are hovering around since that shooting to see anyone drinking past 2:00 thru our huge plate glass windows, doncha know). Belle Island honey habanero moonshine is the loving tits, but hoo boy am I feeling it. Going back to bed for a couple more hours.

Godspeed, y'all.

Thurs-sun 436 dinner covers
222 brunch covers
3 private parties
6 menus

Gonna sleep for all of today

I know lots of places will put up much larger numbers but my kitchen is a repurposed hallway

As predicted, despite cramming every available storage space with food as well as strategically not refrigerating things like butter and whole eggs for the first couple days of the week we straight up just started running out of food.

Intelligent and bright, they explored a world that was new and strange to them. They liked it, they thought - a whole world just for them! They were dimly aware that a God had created them, was watching them; they called out to him, thanking him in a chittering language, before running off.


For Father's day we had two different brunch buffets, a "casual" and "finer" (read seafood) buffet. The marketing team hosed up and only advertised the casual one. We have three restaurants total, and the seafood buffet is at our steakhouse, generally only open in the evening, not at brunch time. This caused an interesting chain reaction where the casual buffet overflowed massively because nobody knew about the other one, and all the overflow customers went to the third restaurant and overflowed them. Every cook on premises was utterly slammed for hours.

Except me, the lone cook assigned to the seafood buffet. I went to work expecting to get beat up all day and instead did 40 or so covers over five hours. I couldn't even go help elsewhere, I was required to stand around and do nothing in case a guest wanted an omelette or a steak grilled (both to order on the buffet).

All in all a good day.

Thurs-sun we did 870 lunch / 360 late lunch, 1350 dinner (just for comparison, not to try to one-up)

We made it

I signed on to do some agency chef work before finding out I got a good new full time job and boy howdy the two shifts I did before leaving were great reminders why I quit the industry. Physical and verbal abuse, miserable atmosphere, a 9 hour shift where the supervisor tried to bully me into doing 14 hours straight and now they're trying to not pay me.

I tried that garlic thing and it just cleaved a chunk out of the clove rather than pulling the whole clove out. I'll have to gently caress with it more when I have time to experiment. There's obviously more technique involved than it appears.

Things like that tend to only work with certain cloves of garlic. I have been conned by so many videos of garlic tricks.

My company just won a huge bid for a set of new culinary properties in our airport, it is unreal how much we are about to expand. I'm up for the culinary directorship for our entire set of holdings in this airport. I'm loving stoked y'all.

that's great. I'm still kinda amazed how airports now have decent restaurants in them now, it used to be the best option was always a chili's to go if you were lucky

I also read dipshit the first time, but it turns out he wrote dishpit. These are only sometimes the same thing.
