So You Want To Be A Waiter

The best book on waiting tables that you have never read – yet

Weird things that I didn’t know about Norman Brinker…

…he was married to tennis star Maureen Connolly.

She was only the first woman to win Tennis’ Grand Slam…that’s all.

And he was on the Olympic Equestrian Team in 1952 and was a world class pentathelete (competing in the World Championships two years after the Olympics).

And he was played by Mark Harmon in the movie “Little Mo”, his wife’s filmed story.

And an ex-wife went on to be Ambassador of Hungary.

Seems like founding Chili’s was about the least interesting thing in his life.

And I might be the last person in the world to know these things, but that’s OK. I did know that he was responsible for the salad bar.
