When the Saints go marching in...

I am working my tail off.


So I finally started my extra job as a bartender at the home Saints games. My first game was last Sunday, I was placed in the Club Level in one of the lounges. We served pretty much everything you could think of, except there could only be one shot of liquor per glass. But we had beer and wine too. I learned how to make a bloody mary, it's the most popular drink down here, especially on a Sunday morning at a Saints game. Or really just on a Sunday morning.
The job itself is rough. You get there at 7am, check-in, set-up, and then wait. Once they open the doors to the public you barely get five minutes to yourself. It was hard work, but I'm always up for a challenge. And I had a lot of fun with it; it's cool to see bars from the other side.
The second time I worked, Monday Night Football, I was on the first floor in a bar stand. If I turned arouns and squatted a little, I could see the scoreboard. This time I didn't have beer, which is awesome because it turns out I'm not that great at pouring beer. And we had a much smaller selection of booze. (The club level had 5 different vodkas, the stand only had one -Stoli).
All in all, I had a pretty good time, though it was exhausting, and I can't wait until the next game (next Sunday!!).

As for my real job, that is going fantastically. I had my first set of volunteers last week. I had four people from Alabama, and boy were they amazing. They really set the bar high for the rest of the groups. And my group now is from Southwestern Virginia, and they brought along $10,000 to spend on whatever needs to be purchased!
The house I have been assigned to is 98% done, we're hoping to knock it out this week! And then I'll move on to a new home! It's all pretty exciting and of course very rewarding.
I'll update more when I get more free time.

Geaux Saints!!
