I was very much in demand today as whilst on the way to the Brunswick St Hooked, I got a call from Lucy from Sienna asking me if I would be able to work in the day (which is a bit telling about the amount of staff they have, given I'm probably one of the last people she would have asked) and then probably about 5 minutes later, Patel from the Chapel St Hooked asked me if I'd be able to work there.
There was an event going on for Melbourne Music Week called Beats and Bass, which was held in the tent especially set up for the week, in Birrarung Marr, near Federation Square. Me and Alice had made plans to meet up briefly in between our two shifts to check it out, but unfortunately Alice didn't have enough time to do so in the end, and Amanda didn't want to come as it's not really her sort of thing, and she was hanging out with Ed, Danny, Jo, Luke, Zander and Hannah already. I decided that it was too much of a good sounding event to miss out on, so went for a bit on my own- it would have definitely been the sort of thing I would have enjoyed had I not have work later on and if I had someone there to enjoy it with. It kind of reminded me a bit of Parklife (the festival held in Manchester), except there wasn't as many people there, and so it made me reminisce about Uni.
I wanted to try and be as good a waitress as possible for my last evening at Sienna to be a bit like 'see what your missing out on' but that didn't quite work out as planned because I ordered the wrong sort of cider, and mis-communicated with a customer about what she wanted in her pasta- I thought she said no calamari and no prawns, but in fact she wanted just calamari and prawns. Apparently last night was very hectic and stressful because they were at least 2 staff too short, and Joey had reassigned Sharee to be on the floor instead of on the bar, so that a new girl was doing bar instead, which obviously on a Saturday night is going to end in trouble. Chana shed some light on why Joey can get away with so much- apparently he's best friends with the owner George, so Lucy can only get away with saying so much.
I went out afterwards for a couple of drinks in Electric Ladyland, since I was leaving, although Arnie didn't know it was my last shift- I think he was a bit put out that no-one had told him as a manager.
