ATLANTA - Anyone who’s ever worked as a restaurant server knows it’s not an easy job. And a unique event happening in Buckhead will honor the profession in a fun and charitable way.
The Waiters’ Race Atlanta will take place Friday, July 14 at 4 p.m. at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. The event is a play on the traditional French “Course des Garcons de Café,” which has been happening for decades and challenges waiters to walk through the cobblestone Parisian streets carrying a loaded tray.
Here in Atlanta, servers will carry a tray with glasses of water and wine and a split of champagne. After being judged on speed, service, and style, the winner will get a trophy and a round-trip ticket to Paris, and all the participants will celebrate at an after-party hosted by Le Bilboquet. The entire event is free and open to the public, and is being hosted by non-profit The Industry Fund to benefit The Giving Kitchen.
Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent the morning at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, getting a preview of the big race and trying it out himself!
