Three things happened that were bad omens man:
First I lost my lucky crumber, from the days of crumbling white tablecloths as a server at Topolobampo. It was a big deal for me, my first experience in fine dining service. That crumber was my Dumbo’s feather, and when I lost it after years of luck protection, I was lost in the den of the lion with no sword.
The second thing was I approved a TV show to film in the restaurant, thinking I had my boss’ approval when it turned our she had turned them down. Jen Fite was in Colorado with Chef when she learned from Facebook we had gone ahead with the filming. In a comment on the photo, she asked, “Is there a dislike button?”
