I am officially on paid vacation. Considering I never get paid vacation, this is amazing. People keep asking me,
“When is the bar reopening?”
I don’t know and I will tell you as soon as I do. I am no longer worried about it. It did not burn down. It will reopen when it has a fresh coat of paint and no longer smells like you’re sitting inside of a BBQ grill.
This Friday is Captain’s 40th birthday. I requested the night off months ago. Then, pre-fire, the schedule came out and it had me working on Friday. NOOO!
My bar manager calls today. We chat about our extended vacation and he tells me,
“Don’t worry, I got you Friday night off.”
