I've posted 2 audio clips from video that I shot on a very busy night. I have to preface the clips by saying it was one of our classic "everyone wants to eat at once" weeknights. The audio captures 16 minutes of a 30 minute rush from hell. We had a 18 in a private room doing four courses, 13 corporate types ordering up on the company dole, (god bless them) and another 28 covers thrown in there. Mostly larger tables. all within a 1/2 hour.

We weren't in the weeds but we were close and just as it started it was suddenly over. We were pressed to the limit every second of the clip. One fuck up and it's over. We made it despite the missing 12 oz filet (Do you know how long it takes to cook one?) and the small piece of fish. Luckily we had another walleye on the next ticket and used that one. Also as it turned out she didn't need the missing filet after all.

It's not like this all the time but it's not unusual.

P.S. Noise is now located in Salty's Media Room on the links list.
