The Fell's Point Fun Festival did not kill business at the restaurant tonight, as we had feared. I had my best night in a while, hitting the triple-digit mark in tips. And not a moment too soon - I'm still living on only one full teaching paycheck since June.
I had a couple of invites to head out after my shift, but the usual 9pm or 10pm cut on Saturday night ended up being after 11pm. I've got a shift in the morning, and hope to make it into the gym beforehand, so I decided against any post-work celebrating. This is even though my good friend Neil, who I only see a couple times a year, is in town for the night. He called yesterday and I called him back today, and I was hoping to be able to make it to Brewer's Art afterwards, but I just couldn't do it. I'll catch him in NYC later this month, I hope. Or maybe we can hang out tomorrow, after my shift. Brunch should be busy, though, so there's no guarantee I'll get off at my usual 2pm or 3pm time.
