A guest died in our restaurant.

The manager on duty, one of my trainees, was called to the table because a guest was choking. He performed Heimlich procedures, and the guest expelled a chunk of food. Then, the guest collapsed into dead weight. The young manager held him as long as he could, and performed CPR lifesaving techniques.

Kicking and Screaming

We have guests that I only see once a year - like now for our annual Hot August Nights event. We have been serving them for years, and at multiple locations. I love my regular guests.

So, tonight I am seating some guests, and a guy says, "My God, haven't you retired, yet?"

My answer to them was. "kicking and screaming...that's the only way I'm going out"

I love what I do.

TED: Heather Barnett: What humans can learn from semi-intelligent slime - Heather Barnett (2014)

TED: Shih Chieh Huang: Sculptures that’d be at home in the deep sea - Shih Chieh Huang (2014)

When he was young, artist Shih Chieh Huang loved taking toys apart and perusing the aisles of night markets in Taiwan for unexpected objects.
