Italy invades New Orleans - 2016 Tales of the Cocktail
My first real job was at Villa Pizza in Johnson City New York. A few of my high school friends worked there and loved it, what's not to love? The pay was a tip free $4.25 an hour and you got free pizza. Free f*ckin pizza, count me in! It was awesome working there and to this day I still practice some of the good food serving habits I learned at the restaurant. Has anyone out there ever worked with Italians though? They're crazy folks. I originally thought most of the older chefs on day shift hated me, always yelling something out in my direction. Some of the words were in English, whatever language they were using, I couldn't understand it. And regardless of what they were saying, it didn't sound nice. Why were these Italian guys always screamin' at me? I was just a young high school kid trying to make a buck. And I was honestly a hard worker, good work ethic is in my blood. Turns out all the yelling and screaming was nothing, it's how these guys communicated on the norm. Cheers to the Italians for letting their voices be heard, and also making some of the world's best spirits! Viva Italia!
