Restauraunties

By Victoria & Justine
Hiiii, Victoria and Justine here! We’re both a decade+ into our tenure in this industry of food/beverage and have seen a lot, done a lot and have a lot to say. This is a project/pod/space that we really wanted to create together to amplify and honor our experiences. We will get into many different areas but center our discussions on the feminine experience and the work and healing we have to do and require of spaces for our dignity and the dignity of all! Is the customer always right? Tips? We have thoughts. We fancy ourselves big auntie energy gals and hope you wanna hang with that. Byeee.
Episode 4- Tipsss Part 2
On this episode of Restauraunties, Justine shares her desire of seeing more exciting NA beverage programs. Victoria gets into her fave meals out in the past month. Main dish dives right into tips and how this came to be a customary process in the US. We get into tipped wages and what that means for your pockets if you’re a tipped worker. In B. Y. O. B. we get into “good” customer service and what that means for those of us that still work in service. Let us know what you think!

Episode 3 : To Insure Prompt Service
Hiiiiiii, Restauraunties is back after a brief hiatus! This episode was recorded right before the holidays so you’ll hear brief conversations that might no longer pertain but it's quick and we get right back on track! Coming up On Rice Justine discusses Instant noodles and her do’s and don’ts. Tell us the truth, do you keep the noodle water?! Victoria tried samosa chaat for the first time at an Indian restaurant in the valley. Main Dish: you guessed it we talk about fucking tips, y’all. Victoria, Justine, and Lonnie get into their personal experiences with tips. Like, really get into it. Almost uncomfortably so. And in true Restaurauntie fashion we wrap up B.Y.O.B by keeping it nice and light and discussing the term POC/WOC, whiteness, and fetishization. Let us know what you think, Please rate, review, and share!

Episode 2: But Aren’t We All Stars?
Hiiiiiii! Welcome back to Restauraunties! A podcast about our perspective as two women of color. We wanted to make a space by and for people that look like us and open discussions about things that affect us. This week we get into some Michelin ish. Listen to your Aunties, Justine and Victoria break down the bibs this year, and get into the history of these coveted stars. To be expected, mid point into Main Dish Victoria goes on a Telfar bag tangent with Lonnie. We end the episode with what comes off as a real pro-kardashian b.y.o.b. but truly its just a pro-reality tv rant, because some of us were latchkey kids, and thats ok cuz were interesting adults LOL. We’d like to thank Lonnie for producing/editing/providing studio space and snaps. We’d like to thank Rob for mixing our music and preliminary audio consultation. We’d like to thank eachother for writing/producing/holding space and each other accountable. Logo cred Justine Okay, byeeeeeeee.
