This Thursday night was my first, but certainly not last, night working a Thursday Guest Chef Dinner at my new volunteer haunt: Farestart. I went right after work to team up with other regular Thursday night volunteers and the corporate volunteers (tonight happened to be Amazon Infrastructure Group) to serve a delicious three-course dinner to guests by reservation for a flat fee of $30. The guest chef of the night was the young chef from Trace restaurant located in the W Hotel in downtown Seattle. All of the volunteers were willing and nice, the patrons are extremely understanding and friendly here, the student cooks did a great job and everything ran pretty smoothly. The dining room itself is pretty nice with a lot of large timber beams throughout, dark and candlelight, and with great music playing lightly during table service. I only had three tables of a total of 12 guests which is a lot better than my catering days. And after the dinner every single volunteer got their own three-course dinner to eat in the company of others (two of my dining partners I found out were from Michigan, one a State grad and one a UM grad, so we literally were the last people to leave the restaurant). My meal and people I met were fabulous and though I am not looking to volunteer until the end of June I already can’t wait!!
