A beer, a ballcap, and mad amounts of knitting infuse this story about one of Savannah's most colorful restaurants as it faces its decline. Colorful characters and unabashed prose make this memoir a supplement to those who enjoyed "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."
I was the head server at one of Savannahs most successful and popular restaurants, The Firefly Cafe, catering to the best of this citys blue-bloods. But, once the restaurant was sold, everything changed. The new owners were running the business into the ground, my partner left, my father was diagnosed with a terminal illness, and my weight dropped to a 115 pounds. And while most people find themselves escaping into drugs and alcohol, I became obsessed with knitting. I spent long hours chugging beer after beer and working on any pattern I could come across, developing a psychotic routine of mindless action while life around me was crumbling.
