Anthony Bourdain's Death Can Teach Us

As amazing as food and travel are, turning them into compelling stories, let alone for over a decade, is nearly impossible. But that is what Anthony Bourdain did better anyone else.   

By all appearances, he had lead an exceptional life. Traveling the world, adored by millions, and, in the process, getting paid handsomely for his considerable talents.

But, Mr. Bourdain’s untimely passing suggests that our accepted truths can be far from reality. While he made us feel like old friends, traveling and learning about this exceptional world beside him, we actually knew nothing about Anthony Bourdain or the challenges he may have had.

It is this false sense of knowing, especially a celebrity like Mr. Bourdain, that makes deaths like his seem so shocking. But hopefully, in his passing, Anthony Bourdain can teach us something else about this world.  

Life, no matter how spectacular it may appear to be, can be challenging at times. Mr. Bourdain’s passing affected me in ways he nor I would never have expected.

Each and every one of us impacts others in ways we may not fully understand or appreciate.  We all need to be mindful of this and let others know how just important they are in our lives. Together, we can get though life’s inescapable challenges and help prevent tragic losses like Mr. Bourdain’s from happening.

RIP Anthony Bourdain.

The best way to organize waiters

I could not be happier with this product. I'm a restaurant manager in Atlanta. I have provided my team with laminated reference sheets detailing the wine list, food allergies, seasonal menu descriptions, liquors we carry, and a complete nutritional chart. I knew my team needed a proper server book to carry all these items along with their cash and credit card receipts. I am so happy to have stumbled across the waiter wallet. It is the perfect solution to keep waiters organized and informed at all times. I have already purchased six wallets for my team and I plan on buying many more as we continue to grow. Thank you for your help.

Above and beyond

I placed my order on a Friday morning and paid for next day shipping. The system did not recognize that it would be almost double the cost for next day to be delivered Saturday, so John gave me a call to let me know that because I was pretty close to Boulder where they are located that he would personally deliver my Waiter Wallet on Saturday so there wouldn't have to be any additional shipping charges. Fantastic customer service.

As far as the wallet? This is my first serving gig and it has made the learning curve way easier to manage. The clear pocket is great, I've got menu ingredients, and a few key talking points on there. The quality is very nice so I'm sure this will last me for years to come.

Waiter Wallet is still Number ONE!

The ultimate in service tools. I can't say enough about this product, I buy it for all my students when they graduate. If you want to be successful you must have the right systems of organization in place. And for me, in fine dining, Waiter Wallet is the quintessential!! Get the deluxe model now and experience the difference!
