Wow! Jealous!

If it includes room/board I would be out there in an instant.

I guess you probably wouldn't be eating off the menu everyday, but staff meal would still be good! Heck, I'd probably be caught in the dumpster out back stuffing my face with all the "leftovers"...

I'd pick The French Laundry, as thats where TK is based right? Perhaps you would get to brush shoulders often, and it might even be a foot in the kitchen door!

I still have to send a resume and apply. Not sure how many people received a letter and how I received one. I know I did well on the exam so maybe that had something to do with it. The externships would be for 2007 and I "think" you can request which months you'd like to work in. If I request for September-November the hotels are usually slow by then and I'll also be able to save up both vacation hours and money. We'll see. The main thing holding me back is the financial issue. I can talk to my folks and see if they'd be willing to help me out as well. Better that than getting a loan or racking up a credit card bill because I know that wherever I go, I'll also be eating out at the area restaurants as well. Las Vegas is out of the question because I'll go crazy playing poker. NYC sounds like the most exciting but would also be the most expensive I think because since I've never been there, I would have to try all of the restaurants I've read about like Restaurant Daniel, Aureole, Le Bernardin, Aquavit, etc. I would also want to catch at least one or two Yankee-Red Sox games. Ah, we'll see. Still have plenty of time to decide.

...always better from Fenway...

Still, getting tickets is next to impossible at Fenway for Evil Empire games.

New York is definetly expensive to live in! Incredible little town though!

Hope it works out for you!

Since I'm old enough to be your mother If you were my son, I'd chase you for miles if you didn't ask me for help and didn't look into this offer and see what can be worked out. You have what it takes, use it,enjoy it..May you have the chance to have your dreams come true.
