The start of Summer signifies long days and crazy nights for Restaurant workers — This is the time to consult your July horoscope.
As we’ve passed through the summer solstice — a time when mornings awaken as early as nights fall late — those who work in restaurants can find symbolism in the summer sun that brings days of hard, long and relentless work upon us. These are the busy months and so, some will feel the benefits of the sun’s warm rays shine favorable upon them, while others will experience the full range of the sun’s wrath — leaving many burnt to ash. What will your July horoscope be?

Lisa met someone in Cancun last weekend and is – and I know this sounds crazy – getting married so she really needs you to cover her whole week of July 22nd because it’s her wedding after all and even though you were going camping you wouldn’t say no to covering her for her wedding, right? Because you’re not a horribly selfish and heartless person, right?
Your grilled lamb chop special is going to be a “crowd pleaser”, opening up the potential for a meaningful, yet possibly back-handed compliment from Chef… You should be proud and confused.
When your air conditioner breaks, you’ll discover 5 employees hanging out in the walk-in while you’re showing the Health Inspector around. As Pluto enters the 9th house on July 20th let the word Proactive soak in – karma’s a bitch and you can only blame yourself.
As the summer sun beams her ever-scorching rays, you will find yourself experiencing a stretch of heavy lethargy. I hear shotgunning a red bull helps.
You will discover a small, morbid, yet pleasantly consoling place deep within your mind this coming week as a coping mechanism when dealing with a customer who cannot eat most things on your menu, doesn’t want the things they can eat on your menu and then proceeds to create their own dish based on ingredients of things on your menu.
