See You In September

Yes, the long weekend is here my friends.  I certainly hope you all take advantage of it and enjoy yourselves.  But please, come in for lunch first, you don’t want to go on wild adventures on an empty stomach do you?  I’ll be heading away for  few days out at the lake.  Please have a safe and fun weekend.  We’ll be closed Monday, back at it on Tuesday!

The Cougars Are Back!!!

Well hello to you and you and you and you. It’s a big day, because U.S. College football is back in action and my beloved Washington State Cougars play their first game of the year against the  Rutgers Scarlett Knights and also the alma mater to one James Gandolfini God rest his soul.  Ah yes, there is a certain serenity that comes over me when college football is on.  I experienced it first hand for 3 years when I went to school in Pullman, Washington and I was hooked all the way.   Now, I love the arrival of September when the game is back on.  It’s compelling stuff. Even if you don’t know a majority of the players, it’s the game itself that draws me in, the battles of countless David & Goliaths or two big powerhouses squaring off for supremacy.  The crowds are insane.  If you are on campus and the team is playing at home, that’s a whole other level of fun.  The tail gating, the food, the post game party win or lose.  It was always an event.  Now, I just settle in, maybe grab a bag of chips a couple of beers and watch the game.  I may even yell at the TV from time to time, but hey, who hasn’t?  Not too many of us Washington State Cougars fans up here, and that’s ok.  I know enough of them on Facebook, I’m sure we’ll talk about it just the same.  The game is tonight, I’m excited but I do have to get lunch going.  I will however leave you with the fight song from my beloved Washington State University as sung by the late great John Candy.

The Ice Bucket Challenge

Well hello famiglia. Of course as many of you have probably seen and perhaps even participated in, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a pretty big deal right now. Well yesterday it was my turn after my cousin Don Sacino had nominated me. So with the help of Sandra, Amanda and Aline it was my turn to get iced.   There is even video of it, but it’s blue and it’s sideways but I need to work the kinks out as it currently links to Sandra’s site, but it’s also on our Lilitaly Pasta Facebook site. I have nominated four great individuals; Rena Chiovelli, Trevor Doroshenko, Jeremy Hayward and Miles Quon and as of last night, Trevor had fulfilled his challenge. Still waiting on  the other three.  My son  Dylan was also nominated and he completed his last night as well.  It’s for a fantastic cause and a terrific means of developing awareness for ALS also known as Lou Gehrigs disease. For more information or to make a donation go to als.ca Now I have to get lunch ready.  See you at noon

The Start of The End of Summer

Well look what we have here. It’s Monday August 25th, the start to the last week of summer.  Wow, so fast, too fast and not nearly enough sunshine for my liking.  Well, I take pleasure in anticipating another gorgeous Indian Summer as we always seem to get up here.  Plus, College and NFL Football will be firing up real fast too, so that’s another positive. But still, summer is just too short.  So, we hammered out some discussions, and it would appear a major issue has been resolved.  The sausages are back!  I’m talking about the sensational spicy sausages that you all came to love over the last few years.  Our supplier was struggling, but it seems the issue has been corrected so we should be able to have them spicy bites of awesome every day again, starting today! Not sure if you heard, but we’re hiring.  Now, you have too can come and work here at Little Italy and enjoy working with a devilishly handsome boss.  It’s an ideal job for someone with school aged children that needs/wants to get out of the house for a few hours a day. The job has a lot of little tasks to it, but you can do it all while watching Corner Gas, professional darts from England and the Ellen Show.  It pays $11/hour plus tips.  Did I mention the devilishly handsome boss part? It’s about 20-3o hours a week depending on what’s happening. With hot school lunches about to kick off again, I trust it will be a very busy year.  Email your resume to gerry@littleitalypasta.com or stop on in with one after 1:30.  Okay, time to get to it. See you all at noon.

A Change Is A Coming…I Think.

Well, what can I say. My mind has been running crazy lately with ways to make things better, smoother and more efficient around here.  In light of the challenges with trying to find people to work I do have some thoughts that I think will make things easier. Adjust and adapt right?  In any case, priority Number 1, keep the customers happy.  I’ll keep you up to date with my thoughts and plans.  In the meantime, it’s almost back to school time for the rest of the kids that haven’t gone back yet.  That means Hot School Lunches are soon coming up again.  We do those too.  Let your school’s hot lunch coordinator know about us, we would be happy to get involved. Now, I really have to get to work and start lunch.  Have a great day everyone. See you at noon.

We’re Hiring.

Well I’m not exactly sure what’s been happening, but the cafe has been jam packed busy the last little while.  I know the line up gets long, but thank you all for your patience.  In the meantime, we are hiring, so if you know anyone that needs a job, send them my way.  Unless they’re negative minded, than don’t.  We like to keep it fun here.  Pays $11 an hour, plus tips,  20-30 hours a week and they would have a devilishly handsome boss with mad karate chopping skills.  If they can cook or at least read and follow direction, they would probably do just fine.  We’ll see.  Seriously, send them my way.  Time to get at it.  See you at noon.
