I mentioned this briefly on Saturday’s post, but it is official today. I will be on The Dave Scott Show this Friday discussing serving and the industry in general. It should be an interesting listen. I’ve never been a fan of my own voice (although I have been accused of loving to hear myself talk), but if you all want to suffer through I promise to try to make it interesting. He hosts a restaurant themed show every Friday. In recent weeks he has talked to consultants and managers. I think it will be a refreshing change to have someone who spends time with the guests giving a different opinion. Have I sold you yet? Here are the three best reasons I think you should listen in.
1) Someone is putting a server on the radio. There are so many talented server bloggers out there making their voice heard. I think this is a great chance to reach a larger audience. There are several people who I frankly think should be further ahead in line for something like this than me. I hope this goes well and gives many of them the opportunity to be heard as well. I will be dropping some names to him of people on that list. People I would much rather listen to on the radio than myself. I’ve never seen anyone who sits down at a computer to write about serving as a rival. This is a mighty fine community we have and what helps one of us helps all of us as I see it.
2) I will be making a big announcement about the future of this site. January 1st this site will no longer exist as you know it. For the last week or so I have been up to my eyeballs in uploading, installing, truncating, and redirecting. The Holidays are probably not the best time to do this. On Friday’s show I will be announcing a new home for the blog and a new format I hope you all will really like. Of course you will hear about it on this blog next week, but who wants to be the last to know? Only one group will get to know sooner and those are the people who are signed up for my twitter feed. They will get first crack at it on Thursday.
3) It’s the day before my birthday. Yeah, I will play that card. I am cutting my birthday celebration a bit short (who gives up a Saturday night shift in December?) to partake in the interview. Consider it my online b-day party and you are all invited. No present necessary. Sorry, no cake.
So if you are near a computer on Friday between 6-7 central time, I hope you will direct it to LVRocks.com . Dave seems like a great guy and hosts a very interesting show. His past restaurant shows can be found on his page. All are very good listens. I would be curious to hear what you thought of past guests. I will try to not embarrass all of you. Back to regularly scheduled posts tomorrow.
