Us kids all used to work here, The Three Clock Inn (no, no named cause it had 3 clocks on the the 3. clock. inn. see?). Jacques was the waiter back then. We learned everything from him. Hell, my sis is a restaurant person because of him. Went as a diner and had frog's legs for the first time last weekend. Totally converted.
