My second clue was that the restaurant parking lot looked something like this:
And any thoughts of a peaceful night were dispelled by the sight of the lobby:
Okay, so I exaggerate, but I’m not lying when I say the restaurant was jammed from before I got there until I served the last meal at 10:30. We didn’t finish closing until a little after midnight. It was crazy.
Even with that many people, we pretty much rocked. Cora and Brittney handled the hostess and cashier duties. They kept a nice flow of people in/people out. The cooks, Cody, Chris, and Chets were at the top of their game and I must say they kicked ass. April, LMKIA, Raecheal, Amber and I ran our asses off and had a ton of fun doing it. Raecheal started bitching early in the evening, so I grabbed a bus tub and cleaned off three of her tables. Then I slammed her with three groups of people. Find time to bitch now. I didn’t hear another word out of her.
I love summer when the restaurant runs like a well oiled machine and everyone is cracking jokes because they are high on endorphins. It’s why I do what I do.
Okay, so now that I’m done patting myself and everyone else on the back, you are probably wondering what the Pow Wow is. It is a weekend of costumes, dancing, music and wares at the Joe Robbie Pow Wow Garden of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. Below are some images of past contestants.
