Server Speak: What’s Your Favorite Season to Work?

I like the cold weather in the winter. You get to make heartier meals and you can go heavier on dishes because
when it’s cold out people want stuff that sticks to their ribs.

If you have a patio, the summer or spring. If not, the fall. Fall for us because all the
students come back. I definitely don’t like winter break.

Spring because everybody is so happy and excited that it’s not gross out. Patios open up at a cooler temperature. 

Sebastian Joe's

Summer. When it’s the busiest time goes by really fast. Time goes by slower in the winter so there’s a lot of standing around.

Middle of winter. In the cold weather we light the fire up so people come in.
