After the assorted nonsense of last weekend, I was less than excited about returning this weekend, although some of that had more to do with the mountain of school work staring me in the face. Long-ish story short, however, it's been kinda slow. Not horrificly slow, but definitely more on par wit...

    Do I have a magnet on my head or something? Wow. Slow Monday shift, and no stocking to do as we're running the coolers dry to prep for inventory. Little weasely guy with a tracheotomy thingy on his throat sits down at the bar and tries to do the shot & beer thing - which…

    H'ok - a brief one today, really. Sunday night? On the whole, quite pleasant, really.   No silly idiots to deal with. Quiet bar night. Inventory is coming up on the 31st (as it does every month) so we're letting the coolers run as close to dry as possible to ease the counting process.  As&he...

    So I walk in last night expecting to : A.) Work the lounge again B.) Talk to the bossman about some scheduling topics that are becoming more pressing. C.) Make some decent money. D.) Be generally treated like a human being for the entire night. Spoiler alert : Only one of those 4 actually occurre...

    I'll be brief for this one :   It's my week for lounge both nights. My shift co-coworker called in, so I had the lounge all to myself with a supervisor doing occasional backup. We weren't crazy busy, but very steady and some folks were extremely generous with the tips.   The TL/DR comes...

    For the sake of marking the time... Sunday - decently busy. Made money. Monday - decently dead. Did not make much money, but was a more peaceful shift. Moving on.

    ... ready?  Braced for it? Here we go. Strap in.   So I arrive at the service bar for my Saturday night shift. Jesusfuckingchrist. I knew they'd gotten run over last night so I wasn't surprised to see it needing work, but one also hopes that either the barback stocked before leaving last nig...

    Okay - so my schedule's complexity level shot through the roof last night so - I'll be brief on these couple. Friday night in the lounge and the parking lot looks - very nicely packed. There's probably a screed in here about stimulus money and people dumping it into a casino because...   people a...

    So. Another hectic, crazy Saturday night in the lounge bar! ... Ok, no. Just kidding. Not. At. All.   The evening was miserably, horribly slow - exacerbated by the two bartender routine that characterizes your usual Saturday. The first two hours were just... miserable. Beyond that it wasn't ...

    Friday night and it's off to the service bar with a world-class migraine. Apart from that, I'm in a good mood. Got a new lanyard in the mail (featuring Avatar - my favorite Swedish metal band) and have moved my gaming license over to that, so had positive 'new thing' vibes to go with to…
