Out with the old – In with the new – New class at UCLA – Restaurant Operations

A quick update as I head to hit the books!  I enrolled in UCLA’s extension class in…<<<drum roll>>> Restaurant Operations & Management.  It’s once a week night class from 7-10pm – I know it’s late – but it’s really gotten me excited and energized.

There’s something to be said about putting yourself in an unfamiliar environment, meeting new and sometimes strange people of all walks of life, almost all who wants to someday (fantasize) about opening their own restaurants, some with restaurant experience, some who are just foodies, and some who are just lost looking for that passion to be sparked.

So far, it’s been learning the basics.  The sometimes boring but necessary stuff.  After all, it is a business – it just happens to be someplace where people get together to nourish themselves, to “break bread” with others, to socialize and communicate, and have fun.

More to come on class~  hitting the books~
