Hi John, everyone,

I do agree that our waitress at Zekes was excellent. she always remembered that i ordered tea. She may be the main reason why the place is still in business. Having never noticed a person in there that I could identify as an owner or manager, I have to wonder about how they do manage the business. 

But to say to a group of people that come in on a monthly basis, that they can't order in pizza (since the cooks went home) identifies Zekes as a place that must be able to make money despite itself --- and we are loyal to this place because???

I agree (not sure about the prices though) and it seems closer for those on foot. We should give them a head's up a day or two in advance so that they are staffed properly though.

Last night you mentioned that any place frequented so reliably should offer some form of thanks even if it's bowls of pretzels or perhaps a special. I think that's a great idea, but I've only seen one other place do that, Morty's Pub. I can't get upset over it since I never expected it and it's not commonplace.

I'll miss our Zeke's waitress who often had my beer being poured before I ordered.
