I didn't even rush to get this job. I did my research and someone offered it to me.

I was in the right time at the right place.

I am still waiting for my big break though. It will be coming! lol.

never stops.

Fuddruckers is a great place to perform.

I remember my first magician trick there and i still remember. He did a simple hot rod trick and it amazed me. (i was 8 by the way)


GOOD LUCK!

No, instead take your time and learn how to perform. John knows what it takes to get where he's at, he has sacrificed the time, money and effort to LEARN FIRST then go out looking for a job.
As you've read he studied up on it BEFORE looking for the job.
By the way John that is one sweet deal. You don't have to do dishes at the end of the night do you :D

Thanks Sluggo.

I don't have to do the dishes at the end..the only thing I get to do is clean a plate (meaning I get food free)...

I have not yet started...i plan on starting in about a week ot two...I am just waiting for the cue from the guy that is leaving the resturuant...

I also got a little hint from the guy that he will leave the whole place for good and give it to some one...and he said if he does give it to me..I will have that , and the other one hopefully..so 2 resturaunts.. which is good ...and I hope it really works out well.

Stop thinking of this job as an inconvenience, and more of an opportunity. You're getting great pay at a job you're interested in. Enjoy it.

That sounds like all 7 of the restaurants I work at. @ of them have an upstairs dining area (both use this as the smoking section.) Big stores like that hold 200 to 300 people and the more people the more you can perform. The more performances the more tips. It is not unusual for me on a Fri and Sat nijght to walk out of the place with $200 in tips each night.

Also I have seen people say "I leave after my 2 hours are up." Good, they're MORONS. If the people want to see me and the tips are coming in I have been known to stay at a restaurant for 4 hours with a very short potty break only.
