This thread reminded me of Yellowstone. I arrived at Gardiner, a town just outside the North Gate to the park in Mid May. The restaurants and bars had young kids coming in after jobs in the park's Lodges. This is a great Summer job for a kid.

It paid like poo-poo. Plus you had to buy on your own, black slacks (NO JEANS!!) a white dress shirt, and red sash. Minimum wage. The waitresses were supposed to share their tips . . .HA!!

I had a job at a dive called "The Mohnton VFW". No tips, just compliments. You need a place where a waitress gets $100 plus a night. Banquet waitresses earn their money.

I used to work a lot in food in HS/college. Fast food, cook, dishwasher, bus boy, pizza delivery, everything but being a bartender pretty much!

After I graduated from dishwashiing and bussing, I made a ton of cash serving tables and working the bar in the convention/catering department at a nice hotel. A 15% gratuity was already included in the bill, but when it's an open bar for a few hundred people everyone feels generous, and it was a rare night I wouldn't walk out with a couple of hundred bucks cash at the end of the evening.

And money aside, it was a great job. Good people and many many good times. I still miss it sometimes.

I plan on using my GI Bill to go into medicine after the Corps, and I've often thought about bartending while in school to make some good money for a few nights a week. I've never done it before, though - I'm sure it's hard work
