Today I was informed by both bosses that I've been mentioned in reviews of the restaurant on three different sites. I had never heard of 2 of them.

Favorable reviews of my work have appeared at Trip Advisor, Yelp, and Urban Spoon. (the last 2 are a mystery to me.  I mean, seriously, "YELP" sounds like a site devoted to animal abuse issues!)  I was stunned (and so were the doslocosguys!) because from what I've been told, it's usually only servers who get singled out by name.  I suppose I ought to check out these sites for myself, but that thought makes me uncomfortable, for some reason. Three reviews didn't mention my name, but it was clear to the bosses that the person being referenced was this old buddy-boy; lunch & specific days were the giveaways. Oh, and my warped sensahumah was quite obvious, as well.

We never know what mark we leave (or make) on the lives of others. It's nice to know it is positive and made others happy.

That said, it was grand to see regular customers returning now that the season has ended.  The first 6 dined with us today and I was thrilled to see them and catch up on their doings over the past 3 months.  They seemed happy to see me, as well. We swapped summer stories as they enjoyed their meals.  Hugs were shared all round. It was great fun.

I am off work for the next 2 days and so looking forward to the extra 24 hours, I cannot begin to explain, why.  And, I don't need to explain. So there!

And so it goes.


  1. Way to go! You should be proud!

  2. Congrats on the postive feedback. I read reviews on those sites when I try someplace new.

    I do use Yelp fairly often. It is very user friendly on an iPhone they their info is often out of date. Many times I have used them to locate a business only to arrive at the destination and find they closed 6-12 months ago.

  3. YELP is a "foodies" bible here in Atlanta and I will not check out a restauarant without first going to Yelp. Urban Spoon is owned by YP and Trip Advisor by Delta and seem to be more coporate oriented.

If they are simply a tirade or opinionated bullshit, they will be removed, so don't waste your time, or mine.
