  • There will also be a 2oz Pork add-on button only for burgers because it is a better fit on burgers. Don’t use this button for any other add-ons.

  • When picking printer rolls for the kitchen- pick the rolls with one sheet of paper on the roll (not the ones with a second paper that’s yellow on the roll) for regular rolls. The rolls with yellow sheets in them are expo rolls only. FOH rolls are also shiny not matte like the kitchen.

  • Summer can mean that we will have slow times throughout the day. Please stay busy during this time and try not to congregate at the host stand or server stations. If you’re looking for something to do to stay busy- ask a manager. We recognize that space is more limited with the remodel, but if you’re off the clock, please make room for working employees.

  • Don’t forget to check out with managers before clocking out- especially closers, we need to do that walk through before you go and we may need you to wait with us for safety reasons.

FOH:

  • We will have a new bourbon Block 15 Barrel selection soon. Once the Eagle Rare is gone, we will switch to Buffalo Trace. It is $7.50 for one 1.5oz. pour.

  • Servers, when you are phased, we expect you to be done 15-20 minutes after your phase time (no later than 30 minutes unless extenuating circumstances). Sometimes there are breaks and other things that get in the way and we will keep that in mind when phasing you. Hosts, we expect you to be done in about 10 minutes. Be prepared for managers to give you expected out times at time of phasing.

  • Closers, please wipe down the host anti-fatigue mat with simple green and a used sani towel before leaving.

  • When wiping down under the make table, please scrub everything off the shelf and walls.

If you haven’t tried it and want a sample, please ask a line cook. The tuna for the sandwich is the same tuna for the Mediterranean salad.

  • If there is a location next to an employee’s name on a food ticket, please run it to that location. If the location is the office or no location, they can pick it up. If you have time to run office food, please do so but don’t make it the priority in running tickets up. (ex. “Katy- office” or “Julia- brewbar” vs. “Amanda”)

  • Going forward, the tap room will not have more diversity in retail. They may have more sizes but call over there first to check before sending a customer all of the way out there.

  • It’s so important that we’re repeating it: during prep construction, it is very important to be diligent on organization of food items and triple checking dates to avoid food waste.

  • Please brew a new pot of coffee if you’re the last to take some, if you don’t know how, ask a friend.

ALL:

  • New Monthly Specials start today!

  • There is a remodel of the downstairs happening for two weeks starting the 16th! It will be a significant improvement of prep space and employee space specifically! This means, there will be some strange things happening during this time: you may be scheduled project shifts to help with moving things, the employee space won’t exist as of the 17th (it will be in the brewbar area), and prep will be in the game room and the game room will be closed.

  • Take your employee belongings home from the break room by the 16th 😊 Anything left over, will be donated as walls will be demolished starting the 17th.

FOH:

  • We have decided to bring the 10:45/10:30 server in earlier. If you are scheduled this shift please prioritize by first: stuffing menus, then checking with the opener and seeing if they need help, and finally moving to picking lists (pick bar list first).

  • When picking lists, please put it away ASAP and don’t leave at the end of the bar as it looks cluttered.

  • When you take calls or write down an item to keep an eye out for the lost and found- please date it so we can take it off the corkboard at an appropriate time to declutter that space.

BOH:

  • During prep construction, it is very important to be diligent on organization of food items and triple checking dates to avoid food waste.

FOH:

Ketchups that have been married can gather in a cranberry-colored rack on counter by packaged beer cooler to be put in refrigerator at close. Ketchups freshly filled can stay at the two stations to be used as backups the next day. Refrigerated/Married ketchups should be the first placed on tables in AM. This rotation process & refrigeration will prevent fermented ketchups. As always, wipe them down and keep an eye out for weird bubbles.

  • While having the front door open can be super nice, guests’ comfortability is #1. Please let a manager know if it gets too breezy, or stuffy, and ultimately, it’s the manager’s decision what happens with the door

  • If you need help as a server it is our expectation that you ask your float or leads on the floor for assistance. Knowing that you need help is a good thing! Also, please be cognizant of stacking tickets, this prevents a healthy flow for both the kitchen and the bar.

  • Under no circumstances should glasses other than rocks glasses or kids’ cups should be stacked in dirty racks. Especially taster glasses- they’re fragile!

  • On the subject of ketchups, please make sure they are wiped down after they are filled so they aren’t sticky the next day.

  • Please help bus and wipe the brewbar and rail as needed.

  • Alongside other menu changes tomorrow, we will be changing how we offer sides. Please tell guests, “Your burger/sandwich comes standard with fries, if you would like, you may upgrade to soup or salad.” The upcharge for a side of soup or salad will be $1.

BOH:

  • We will be weighing mushrooms for the Po Boy from now on for consistency. Sarah will announce what the weight is soon.

  • If you are transferring something from Block to Caves or from Caves to Block, have a lead or manager of the location you are taking from sign off on the transfer sheet for it. If no lead or manager is on, ask whoever is there.

  • If you transfer three different items or more, fill out an invoice and have someone sign off on it and leave a copy above the recycling bin (ex. “1 jar of capers, 1 jar of mayo, and 2 oranges” would need to be invoiced). Ask a manager if you have questions.

  • Please pay attention to rotation of all items in all areas. Newest always needs to go in back so the oldest items are used first. This goes for items in prep and in upstairs kitchen. Double check your dates.

  • Do your best to work ahead on prepping bacon ahead of rushes, we want to stay away from frying bacon. If it’s an emergency and prep is still here- they can throw some in the oven.

  • Please refresh yourselves on our policy when it comes to introducing/letting tables know when they are getting a new server.

  • Try to keep the server bus station upstairs as tidy as possible. This includes not constantly having extra glassware bus bins and dirty silverware containers- it creates clutter.

  • If you take the last of item from a box, break it down. If you don’t have time to recycle it in that moment, let a friend know to help you remember to do so or see if they can take it.

  • Don’t forget some of our guest beverage options have changed! Please refresh yourself by visiting Goody’s write up in the kitchen.

 BOH:

  • Only use the swamp cooler when absolutely necessary and not for too long to avoid cooling off food in the window.

  • Speaking of food temps, please time grilled chicken well so it’s not sitting in the window for too long as it cools quickly.

  • Prep will now slice a lemon for Salmon Mousse for consistency.

  • Reminder: Be very cautious not to over fill the oil bins! Make sure you leave a substantial gap so it won’t overflow when heated by the sun. Sarah will also be including a write up in the newsletter on proper clean up if an oil spill occurs.

  • Make sure the buns for the Paddy Burger are toasty since it’s a messy one.

  • Let’s check the tortilla chip par around 4:30 when the night lead is here to avoid having to make more during dinner.
