You all know that I love musical theater, yes? Other than 20% tips and shift drinks, it is my favorite thing in the whole entire world. This week, I went to see the Broadway show Dames at Sea and I pretty much loved it. It’s a silly, campy piece of theater that kept a smile on my face the entire time. The whole cast tap dances like they’re in the middle of a brunch rush on Mother’s Day with an unlimited mimosa bar. (In other words, they move like ninjas!) Each cast member gets a chance to shine whether it be a musical number or a tap routine and they are all incredibly talented. One of the stars of the show is a woman named Lesli Margherita and I am pleased to say that I followed through on my promise and actually got to meet her after the show.
Okay, maybe she wasn’t that into me and maybe I freaked her out a little bit and maybe I have a restraining order against me now, but the point is she talked to me and I have video evidence.
Yes, I offered her a shift at my restaurant and she is thinking about taking it. In the video, it appears that she is not that into the idea, but I can see in her eyes that she 100% considering working with me on Sunday mornings. Of course, that look in her eyes could be seen as fear and loathing, but I choose to recognize it as hope.
Anyhoo, the show is really a lot of fun and, even though it’s not restaurant related, I think anyone who reads this blog could appreciate it. If I can get the restraining order lifted, I will totally go see it again. In the meantime, I will ask you guys to go on my behalf.
