Sean, GM at Pilot Butte, and I have been friends for many years. He's the BOH and I'm the FOH so it's been interesting to coach eachother in our career paths. Let me know when your going to be in the as I'd love to meet you. Our restaurant is showing a spurt of holiday traffic which is a welcome relief.
