Ouch ...

So, I was off a-bartending today. I left home at about 7:30 to get up to Northwestern Univeristy by 9am ... I was wondering what sort of bartending gig started at 9am ... I mean, back in college, I drank that early, but times have sure changed at N.U. if they're now providing bartenders!

As it turned out, I had to be there early for a lot of set-up for a party that was running from noon to 4pm ... it was a holiday party that the university did for all their maintenance/engineering staff. What's nice is that these folks were very happy to be there, very happy with having an open bar (with top-shelf booze), and actually expressed this happiness by tipping the bartenders. I didn't make a huge amount, but I was pretty much expecting to not get squat for tips, and it worked out to making something like another five bucks an hour.

The sad part of the evening was that we (the staff) didn't get fed ... and they had quite an amazing spread, with awesome looking prime rib. Unfortunately, things were hectic and none of the bartenders got a break, or anything to eat, so by the time I got back home (about 11 hours after I left), I was sore, tired, and starving.

Anyway, that's what I've been up to today.
