They didn't deserve your time anyways. You have new experiences and adventures coming your way. I'm very excited for you. Good luck!
There is only one God, and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not Today...'
No offence taken .It's very difficult to find the right fit,whether it's catering,hotel or restaurant and no job is perfect,just perfect for yourself.
I'm starting to feel the same way about my current job. Cooking food that was popular in the seventies at a club in a retirement community is getting old really fast.
<It just reminded me of camping. Load, transport, unload, load, transport, unload, etc.>
Lol! I can relate to that. I guess my initial response was a bit defensive..apologies..
I usually just do smaller on site events 8-10 ppl plated dinners,I leave the larger events to the youngsters
May the Bridges you burn light the path ahead of you.
That being said, Knyfe was gracious/ considerate offering to stay for so long in order to not leave them short. Chris, best of luck in your new endeavors! You have a lot going on in your life right now, and this could not have been an easy decision. But with your attitude and work ethic I know you will have a lot of success.

Thanks for all the well-wishes and kind words, guys and gals.
My last day was Friday, so I'm officially unemployed. However I helped out at my friend's pub Sat & Sun for St. Patty's. Probably put in a meager(by my standards) 22hrs in 2 days. I got to work out my 300mm Takobiki (don't cringe Broida) on 400lbs of Corned beef and massacred a few giant cases of cabbage with my gigantor Takeda. Fun, but a little sore. Had to do some sharpening this A.M.
I did my first night of stage at a really nice restaurant in town. Check it out http://www.zebrarestaurant.net/-The website needs some updating and the pictures don't do the food justice.
A good friend of mine is Sous and I'm staging again tomorrow night. I enjoyed it tonight, I struggled to tournee potatoes and made Dover Sole for the 1st time in my life......
.........so now I need a Sole knife and have got to find a tournee knife as my 150mm petty is just too big and clumsy.
Not much down time for someone without a job-YET
I'll keep you all posted.
Thanks again, Chris
No matter how high the throne,
there sits but an ass.
I have left my current employer 3x. The last time they called me to see if I wanted to come back. Well being out of work for a few mo. and not really trying to find a job I took it. Now I am looking for the next best thing. Good luck on what you are looking for. Also sounds like you had a great time working this weekend.
Chewie's the man.
