I'm Alive - I Swear!
Okay - I'm going to whip out a quick post before I head off to work. I feel terrible because it's been so long since I updated last. I really don't know what my problem is. I have been working a lot - but no more than usual. So, whatever. This weekend was SO SO SO awesome at work. Saturday was fight night at the MGM and my restaurant is located directly across from the Grand Garden Arena. We got a lot of traffic. Friday night my favorite hottie from boxing - Mr. Oscar De La Hoya himself came in for a party with Golden Boy Promotions. He's so HOT!!
He was signing autographs and taking pictures - what a great guy huh????
Anyway, Friday night was very lucrative for us and it flew by in a flash. Saturday night was even better! We actually opened early because it was fight night. It was Barerra vs. Juarez. Whatever. Never heard of either one. But I gotta say this... people that have tickets to the fight - do not mind spending money! I love that. I had the best tables. I started off with a party from a latin radio station here in town. They rented out the patio and they had open bar for 2 hours before the fight and we had a buffet set up for them with appetizers. The gratuity on that party - $500.00 and they threw me an extra $100. All I did was clean up plates and pour margaritas. Can't beat that.
When the fight ended we got a BIG HIT again. This time I had the winner of the Contender at my table.
I never heard of it - but it's some reality boxing show on T.V. Anyway, he sat down with his entourage at my table and immediately ordered about 10 shots and 3 buckets of beers. I actually wasn't fond of him - he had a major attitude and he was pissed because I did't roll our the red carpet and grant his every wish. But whatever - I had 5 other tables going and he didn't even get sat by the hostess. He sat down with no menus at a table for 8 people. He had like 12 people with him. I had to find chairs and add place settings. But, the guy that paid was cool as hell and he threw me and extra $100 on top of the gratuity that I added.
So, to make a long story short - I made a lot of money this weekend. I was happy.
My latest T.V. addiction is Dancing with the Stars. Now that we have the DVR (Tivo thingy) thru our cable company, I am able to watch all of the prime time shows that I always missed out on before. I love this show!!! So far I love Mario Lopez and his partner - they have the best chemistry and he can work those hips...
I also think Joey Lawrence looks great out there too - remember he used to look like this???
Now he looks like this...
Anyway, I gotta run. I'll update again soon!
