If you've ever worked in a restaurant, the title needs no explanation. If you haven't, this shot was taken just after the doors opened on a Saturday night. In not very long, the place will be wall to wall with hungry customers who may or may not realize (or care) that they outnumber the staff by at least a 20:1 ratio.

It could get ugly. Hide your children.

I always thought that working in a restaurant would have to be one of the toughest jobs in the world.

I like the light circle on the wall reflected on the bar. Cool shot!

Nice shot, Mojo. It reminds me of my high school days when I worked in a kitchen at a truck stop. The days at the dishwasher there were interesting. We prayed for those quiet times.

Great idea for a wordless post. It is very calm indeed before the hungry arrive.

You are talking my language here, every Sunday night I am there before the first customers. I know exactly what you mean. :))
