luvs - you are a student. This is called Paying Your Dues. Grunt work, and lots of it. It doesn't last forever.

See what they are having for the regular menu and propose some little noshes that will complement the entree stuff. Take a nap and eat a good lunch before you start.

I just started waitering in banquets too as a bit of a money maker until my real job starts later in the year.

awwww, banquets are okay. i was already headChef in a restaurant, yet this work is okay, too. being a Chef with a kitchen at 25 was rather great. more banquets after these.
