I honestly don’t know what is going on at work but tonight we had these huge parties. Easily we did over 600 covers tonight. I had a 3 table section and did 37 covers. My average cheque was extremely low for the second night in a row with 50% of my net sales being paid by gift cards which explains a lot. One table even asked me how much their bill was before dessert. That is never a good sign.
All in all though not too bad a night with $1080 net sales and I walked out with $166 after tipping out $40. The percentages were very favourable tonight tip wise.
With the rush and people cramming the place and the music blaring it felt like my disco days when I used to bartend in those packed places. The bartenders that make the drinks where I work now weren’t even born when I used to bartend back in the day.
It was fun tonight for sure….
