This Is National Waiters And Waitresses Day!!

Ralph Orlowski

This day recognizes the value and importance of a good waiter or waitress. They represent the restaurant, and are all the difference between a good or a bad experience. Why not recognize them on National Waiters and Waitresses Day by giving them a little something extra. In addition to a generous tip, a card or simple verbal recognition is sufficient.

By the same token, waiters and waitresses should recognize this day by providing exemplary service (as always).

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!
