Thursday I had a visitor! Ms. Dani Rieland came to spend the night. A ton of our Bloomsburg friends were coming to Atlantic City to see a friend of ours DJ at Harrah’s so we booked a room for Friday night with our friends Drew & Frank and their friends. We had a great time with #friends and made lots of #memories. #sports.
After a great night out with friends, I worked a wedding Saturday night. On three hours of sleep (not my best decision) the wedding was a bit of a struggle. There’s not a whole lot to say about the wedding, because due to my lack of sleep and wild children, I don’t really remember much about the wedding in general. But I thought I would share some pictures with you all.
Today I was back in the office with the banquet manager. I sat in on a “Final Detail” Meeting and listened to another one on the phone. I was able to follow along with the Banquet Event Order and take notes. I also created the server/bartender schedule for the beginning of August. I had to look at when the events were, what time they started, and figure out what time the employees needed to arrive. I looked at how many of each I needed for each event based off of the guest count and sent a mass text to the servers and bartenders. They told me their availability then I added it to the schedule. It was also important to make sure that the first people to text back got their events while making sure the “core” servers got the events they wanted. After the this, I helped Daniella enter some menus into Reserve for upcoming weddings and tastings. My last task of the day was to create a reception layout. This couple wanted square tables instead of our usual circle tables, so I had to make the room diagram by hand. This was actually my favorite part of the day, because it required logic and creativity.
After today I am technically at 121 hours out of my needed 120 hours. Although I’m finished with my required hours, I’m going to continue to go to office hours and events to take the most from this internship that I can.
