This week I am putting in extra hours at the shop because it is Gen Con week and the boss is there instead of at the shop. Normally I work Wednesday and Saturday, but this week I’ve added Thursday and Friday to that list, rounding me out at 18 hours. Now that is not a lot of work, not by a long shot, but it has been somewhat ridiculous because we’ve been unusually busy. Tonight we were at capacity. Last night I started making food as soon as we opened and I didn’t step away from the grill until about an hour before the kitchen was supposed to close, and even then, it was just enough time to step over to the sink and wash dishes in between more sandwiches. Part of the uptick is large groups (with reservations) coming in, and part of it is students being back on campus. It will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow.
