The Washington Tourism Development Authority wants to keep our local restaurants and their servers on everyone’s minds so we are starting a series of server and employee profiles. Most are open for take out, delivery, or curbside pickup. Some are closed until this situation passes, and we want the community to remember and think about their favorite servers and dining establishments in Washington.
Hey ya’ll! My name is Brittany Logan and I have been a server at Down on Mainstreet for 5 years now.
Throughout my years in the service industry, this job has by far been my favorite. I have even had the pleasure of working with my best friend, Katie Mae. All of the coworkers here are a big family and even on our time off we still make it a point to see each other. The same goes for our amazing regulars who seem to brighten our days when they come in.
Once this ‘quarantine’ began I said, “This really sucks because it’s like someone is telling me that I can’t go home,” because Down on Mainstreet is our home away from home.
It’s hard to pick a favorite menu item since everything is soooo yummy! If I have to make a decision though I would recommend ANYTHING with our house made pimento cheese on it. Just get a fried chicken sandwich, add pimento cheese to it, and get our homemade potato chips with ranch as a side!
Being at home has given me time to focus on my schoolwork since I will be finished with my two-year degree in Criminal Justice by Christmas. I’m thinking about going to finish out my degree, get my Masters, and go into the SBI.
Also, the time spent with my daughter Bailey is always cherished. I’m not sure what she’s going to do when I have to go back to work. So, even though it has been a HUGE change, it has also been a blessing in disguise. I am more than ready to get back to work and see everyone though!
I hope everyone stays safe and well and I can’t wait to see everyone when we re-open!
