Jen went to Breezy Hill Farm today to make aprons with Betsey (Ben’s Mom) for the Front of the House staff. Jen found some comfortable khaki material at Joanne Fabrics which will really go with anything and be “homey”, too, creating that fun, comfortable feel they’re looking for in the restaurant overall. They measured, played server, and voila! The new aprons.
Oh, and if you or anyone you know wants to not just play server, but be one at Thistle Pig, they’re looking for Front of House and Back of House staff. Drop off resumes at 279 Main St. in South Berwick, Maine. They’ll be there today (Friday, April 4) between 2 and 4 pm, but just send Ben an email right here if you want to stop by another time and arrange a time to meet.
