In that case, you should enjoy the latest installment of the series: A Tale of Two Bartenders

Murph could probably kick the shit out of most people while blindfolded and with one arm tied behind her back. In other words, you don't wanna mess with Murph. She's old enough to be Rewpert's grandmother and has been bartending since prohibition was lifted.

Enjoy this guilty pleasure while you can...only one more installment left in the series after this!

Say it ain't so!!! What are we going to read to amuse ourselves around here? Is there a book deal? Don't just cut us off!

NO! :shock: Say it ain't so.

I will miss this very much...

These stories remind me of every law firm I have ever worked in...knuckleheads everywhere, not just in the restaurant trade... :raz:

Damn! I wanted do see the Beet implode, but I guess X wasn't around to chronicle that.

Well, unless Employee X is being deliberately misleading, The Beet is still around...

That's it? Come on, I've enjoyed reading these every Monday. It really was somethng to look forward to. There has to be more.

Like, Employee X gets a new job and lives happily ever after. Or maybe Employee X goes back, kills the B's and is relased, as the jury recoginizes justifiable homicide when they see it.

Trish -- you mean that has an absolutely gorgeous sink but stocks it with cheapo z-fold paper towels?

That's C-fold, ya know, the kind you find at the Port Authority.

With the coaxing of a few whackos, Employee X agreed to let me relate the following. THANK YOU THANK YOU and that’s a BIGTIME THANKS. And there are so many to thank. The wonderful comments here [almost] made his 18 months of torture at the beet worth it. And the eglutton staff knocked X’s socks off with their professionalism and assistance. He’d love to name them all but there were so many who lent a hand. He’s afraid he’ll overlook someone and be banished to standing in the corner. Suffice to say, eglutton is a class act.

Most all, a huge thanks to X’s Dad, Rosie - the NJ eglutton czaress and Tony Bourdain. GAT #1would never have been finished if not for the motivation and inspiration they provided. And that’s the truth, 100%.

It remains to be seen whether the manuscript will ever hit the shelves of amazon.com. It’s still a pipedream, though negotiations are in progress. It should be understood that X does not consider himself a writer and he has never been published.

GAT #1 was not originally intended for anyone’s eyeballs except a few acquaintances and friends. The original purpose of it was as a vent and an outlet for X’s klutzy and bumbling writing. Whatever happens, it served its purpose well.
