I Think I Won Again
I have been upsizing the steaks , selling the feature martinis , making sure everyone has a drink in front of them , selling add-ons , getting guests to share appetizers or desserts if they cannot have one all their own , selling coffee. You name it.
Coffee is a biggie. Something so easy to serve adds a couple of dollars to the average guest check.
Hey 14 years ago this week I left the ship for the last time. March 10th in Singapore. Time flies but this streak I am on makes me realize there is still a lot left in the tank.
