Time to go to work
We can already tell this is going to be a nonstop rollercoaster week. We got up early and headed out to bike around Ptown to hand out flyers. When we got back we went to see the first show of Women's Week. It was a fantastic lineup of three independent female musicians. During the show, Bernie started practicing for her job as a cocktail waitress and did a great job!
After the show we cleaned up and put the chairs and tables away. Then we were told they might need one of us to work tonight. We went back to Bella and started dumping the melted ice and replacing it with new ice. Bernie went inside to get more ice and she was snatched up for help with bar stuff, it was time to go to work.
Bernie got to do a lot of different prep jobs, everything from rearranging the furniture and getting change, to cutting up lemons and limes. Up and down the stairs and the elevator, she was all over the place. Then she went outside to hand out flyers before the welcome party.
After work Bernie went to the wine bar upstairs. She socialized and relaxed for a bit. Then Mar joined her for some fun. Afterwards we took a nice long walk down Commercial Street and then back to Bella to shower and sleep.
