This is an open thank-you to all the guests that I have waited on during my employment with Hiro's Steak & Sushi for the past two years.
I will admit, I am bad with names, but I do know what everyone eats and drinks, such as the cool couple with five kids that would come in and ask for me. They would then dine on steak and lobster and finish with Patron Silver. There were also the ladies I served on the Friday night of last year's CornFest. They wanted to see the fireworks, but were having such a great girls night out they just stayed there and enjoyed each others' company.
There was the wonderful couple that would come in with their son and grandchildren that were here from Arizona. Again, I apologize for not remembering names. Mom would always have her bottle of white zinfandel, which I would open for her and pour two glasses and wrap the rest for her to take home. Dad ordered the merlot.
There was also the couple that Grazie's sent over to Hiro's after our first closing and we laughed when they ordered pomegranate martinis, saying that it was a good way to get their anti-oxidants. There was also the Moto-Cross rock star. His lovely lady drank Grey Crane, and him, beer.
There are a few names I know, like Ed Drury and his lovely lady, Joyce. I have served them since the golf course and did not realize how much they liked sushi. The Baca family and their great friends had the banquet room all to themselves, and I must say they had such a great time!
Dustin, Scott, it was always a pleasure to wait on you. Justin, I will never hear a piano play My Chemical Romance like you played it. Thanks also to Ryan, Jake and Ian; you all rock and ditto to your ladies. Thanks also to Jim Wagerman, his lovely wife and to Jane from Allstate; your kindness is appreciated.
There were of course all the great people that would come in to the bar, such as Cynthia, Keith, Scott, Sherry, Auntie, Bill and Bob. I will miss seeing your faces when I come to work. And to Keith and Donna, I will also miss you both. To me, you were part of the Hiro's employee family.
Hiro's was a very unique restaurant and in all my years of serving the public, I have never felt compelled to thank so many people for making my going to work such a great feeling! I hope we will all see each other around town: at Safeway, Quickstop, the gym, etc. Once again, thank you all.
