Most people look forward to the weekends to relax on their days off and sometimes go to a nice dinner. Well, servers are kind of the opposite. The weekend means long shifts, late nights and nonstop running around for demanding customers.
For any servers, bartenders or cooks who feel unappreciated, Alla Spina is hosting an industry night tonight, Monday, May 4th with free food and cheap drinks.
This industry night isn’t just Marc Vetri’s normal monthly celebration, though. It’s a night celebrating National Star Wars Day, and The James Beard Awards, and as of midnight, Cinco De Mayo.
