Fifteen Years ago a teenager, Mathew Sanchez, took his girlfriend out for a Valentine’s Day dinner at Le Cafe Miche in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Towards the end of the meal Sanchez realized he didn’t have enough money to cover the bill. To save him embarrassment in front of his date, the restaurant’s owner, chef Claus Hjortkjaer, paid Sanchez’s bill for him and said “If you can pay me back sometime, great, and if you can’t, I can live with that too.”
More than 15 years later, Sanchez is now an attorney at the law firm of Sheehan and Sheehan in downtown Albuquerque. On a lunch break he noticed that Le Cafe Miche had reopened since it closed it’s doors a few years back. “I just remember thinking this is an amazing opportunity,” he said. He immediately went to the ATM to withdraw enough money to repay the restaurant owner, plus interest.
Claus says he was so stunned at the time he was handed the 100 dollars, he didn’t get the chance to catch the man’s name. He says he’d like him to come back. he has a great glass of wine waiting for him.

It’s amazing to see how generous people can be in a time of need.
The old trick of bars replacing premium liquor with low-quality liquor to increase profits is no longer being tolerated in New Jersey. 29 bars and restaurants, 13 of them being TGI Fridays, were caught by New Jersey officials selling cheap liquor to patrons who thought they were purchasing a premium brand.
The yearlong investigation began after several complaints from patrons.
Have any of you noticed this practice being a common occurrence in most of the restaurants and bars you have worked at?
Did you know that today is National Waiters and Waitresses Day Today? So…I guess you are wondering what this day is all about. The day is simply taking the time to recognize all of the hard working servers out there. Take the time to do a little something extra today for your server by leaving them an extra tip or a little something special.
According to Holiday Insights:
You can recognize your waiters and waitresses on National Waiters and Waitresses Day by giving them a little something extra. In addition to a generous tip, a card or simple verbal recognition is sufficient.
Waiters and waitresses should recognize this day by making sure by providing exemplary service (as always).
What did you do for your server today?
