Just a Waitress Once More


After four months of unemployment, countless cover letters and just as many rejections, I decided that I needed to mount a triumphant return to the working world. As much as I learned from my last two positions in the wine industry, I was quite reluctant to return to the world of working wacky hours and family holidays. Unfortunately, unemployment only supplied enough money to cover rent (not pesky things like food), so back into the fray I went.

I applied for a few positions but settled upon a newly opened restaurant called Bergamot, a 12-minute walk from my house. No lunches, a small easily navigable dining room, a well-selected, geekalicious wine list, and oh yeah, incredible food. I can now also add to the list: fun co-workers, a chef who doesn’t yell and an owner who indulges me in my love for social media.

So for the time being I am back to being just a waitress (slash bartender, slash social media ninja, slash blogger).

    Congrats on getting the job at Bergamot, Amy! I’ll have to ask for one of your tables the next time I’m there, or perhaps see you at the bar! :)

    Ooh… I didn’t realize you worked at Bergamot. We’ve only been once so far, but the food was amazing! Looking forward to going again.

    Thanks for your outdoor drink/apps suggestions on Saturday. We ended up at Whiskey Priest, which was a letdown. My boyfriend has promised we can go to Eastern Standard next time as long as there’s not a home Red Sox game, so I have that to look forward to!
