This Is Going To Be A Good Weekend

Our forecast for Saturday is 700 and for Sunday 900 covers. By all indications judging from tonight this is going to be a money making weekend. My last table had their IPOD out figuring out the tip. I am going, oh no this doesn't look good.

Then they pay and leave me 20%! Tonight my averages were really good and it was a walk in the park before the weekend.

So I hope it continues. Tomorrow I close so should be fun to see what happens.

Who needs a calculator to figure out 20%? I mean, really.

Looks like a bangup weekend for us as well. Wed. night we did $34k, which was the highest in the company, including Vegas (John Mayer was playing nearby; we had about 400 reservations, most of which were before 7pm). That's about the most we can do while still having a couple of private parties and providing decent service.

We have about 300 rezzies on Sunday, so most people are on deck (we usually only run with7 but we'll probably have 14). Since most of them are going to be deuces, this is going to be like Wed. night (and that was a bit of a buzzsaw). Fortunately, the menu is going to be limited, so that will help. I think we have 300-plus tonight and Saturday, but I don't work Fridays so Saturday and Sunday will be the days for me.

20% with an iPod to figure it?! That's my favorite tip...it's 2 x 10% which I can figure in my head ;^)

Manuel...last night was brutal. So many counting their money to pay their bill over and over and leave a miniscule tip afterwards. I think people have forgot to calculate in their head what they should give. Anyway they gave less last night. Cheap buggars!
