Dear Old Time Lovers,
I was really close to my gramps. He was the only one who really understood me. I vented a lot to him about my stupid tramp sister. Maybe this is why I’ve always loved older men…
I used to volunteer at nursing homes and visit with the old folks. They just needed someone to talk to. I left there after confusion over that one day when I showed up in a bikini. Mr. Pappas said I reminded him of his wife, and how pretty she was, and how they used to swim a lot together. So, I just wanted to make him happy. You know?
I don’t regret what I did… I’d do it again. #ElderLivesMatter
Jell-O and Juice Boxes,
I’m a total Trekkie!

For some, it will be their first time visiting Genghis Grill so it is up to you to make them feel at ease. A Fan may have had a hard day at work; and now wants to relax; a Fan may be celebrating a special occasion or it may be a family that just wants to enjoy a good meal. Whatever the reason, you are the Host/Hostess who sets the tone for the Fans’ visit. You can answer any and all questions and fulfill their needs.
You must keep your energy level and enthusiasm up. You are the first person a Fan sees so greet the Fan with a welcoming smile. The Fan’s first impression of our restaurant is you. All incoming Fans must receive a friendly, sincere greeting while the door is held open for them (If time allows).
As the Host/Hostess, you are also the last person the Fan will come in contact with. When the Fan leaves, open the door for them, thank them for choosing Genghis Grill, and invite them to return. Provide the Fan with a good last impression of our restaurant.
Our Hosts/Hostesses are successful because of TEAMWORK. In order for a team to function effectively, it must be guided by certain basic principles. The information, instructions, and philosophies in this manual are the basic principles to which you will be expected to adhere.

Dear Genhghis Gangstas,
I’m such a Trekkie, and working here would combine two of my loves—Star Trek and food! The Wrath of Khan is my favorite of the Star Trek movie. Ricardo Montalban was a bad, bad, boy—but so dreamy! Plus, I’ve been a hostess before. I’m really good. But I got fired from my last hostess gig because I was too friendly. Whatevs.
Beam Me Up Scotty,
Anything with beer is so fun!

Dear Good Yeast Supporters,
If I was never meant for something, it’s me and brew! (Get it? Instead of me and you, me and brew?) I have always been the go-to person to plan parties amongst my peeps. I’m so great with people and getting them together!
I love crowds and I love beer! Like, I can win any drinking contest hands-down… and not puke!
My best party was Beerfest ’15. OMG! The whole block was down. We had a 100-yard beer dash. Barrel Roll—how far can you roll in a barrel. BeerButt—smash a can of beer between your butt cheeks, then someone drinks it. And, we had a thing for charity: “Cans 4 Cans”. Donate money for breast cancer awareness and get a can of beer! Bonus: only one person got hurt at our party.
Hops-ing to Meet You Soon,
Christmas and boats!?!?! I can't contain my excitement!!!!

Dear Fellow ‘Chokers,
So, gambling and artichokes? What a winning combination! See what I did there? I’m great at hosting stuff. I’m the life of the party.
