In the Weeds: Special Edition
For the last three years, I have worked at a job that I love. Quite unexpectedly, I was hired to work at one of the best restaurants in Kansas City without much serving experience. I convinced a skeptical manager that my background as a concierge and my passion for service and high-end hospitality would fit right in with what he was looking for in a team member. They took a chance on me and over the next three years, I built a good following of regulars, routinely did well on secret shopper reports, and was asked to be a trainer. But the two best things about my job were bonding with the guests that I served and the amazing friends that I made.
Okay (insert needle scratching a record sound here) that’s enough of that hazy “Dreamweaver” moment. I was fired on Wednesday for writing my weekly column. ”In The Weeds” has been a fun, sarcastic and anonymous look at my experiences in the restaurant industry. It will continue to be fun and sarcastic. It will no longer be anonymous. I will continue to post on Frothygirlz.com on Tuesdays so please visit often for real stories from my years at The Capital Grille.
Teaser for Tuesday: A look inside the little shoe box that serves as both manager office and execution chamber.
