"Thanks" To Our Restaurant Workers


The restaurant industry has been devastated by this pandemic. I for one, miss eating at my favorite neighborhood places. I, for one, am grateful for what you do. "Thanks!"


"You can always tell when a person has worked in a restaurant. There's an empathy that can only be cultivated by those who've stood between a hungry mouth and a $28 pork chop, a special understanding of the way a bunch of motley misfits can be a family. Service industry work develops the "soft skills" recruiters talk about on LinkedIn — discipline, promptness, the ability to absorb criticism, and most important, how to read people like a book. The work is thankless and fun and messy, and the world would be a kinder place if more people tried it. With all due respect to my former professors, I've long believed I gained more knowledge in kitchens, bars, and dining rooms than any college could even hold." ~ Anthony Bourdain
