Favourite “at work” memory | Working a private wedding at an old firehouse, no one expected all 100 people to eat and drink like their life depended on it. Both kitchen and bar team started running out of booze and food, we had to make trips to the store mid wedding to get more booze and more food. At the end everyone had a great time and it was a successful event.
