Waitresses and waiters at Outback Steakhouse have worn pins for as long as I can remember.
As a collector of buttons, I notice things like that.
Tonight we learned that the conspicuous display of pins at the restaurant are on the way out.
At least as displayed on shirtfronts of veteran servers.
Maybe they will end up framed on the wall.
The Blues Brothers pin you can see below (if you click on the photo to enlarge it) caught my attention tonight.
I asked about it and discovered new uniforms were in the offing.
Only one pin will be allowed.
I told our waitress that it looked as if she could survive an attack by a SWAT Team.
Later, I took the opportunity to ask if I could take some photos so people could take a look at what the waitstaff looked like in the “good ol’ days.”
Melissa McGinley was wearing more pins than anyone else I saw Friday night.
While those wearing the most pins now appear to have higher rank and certainly must have the most seniority, all serves will look like PFC’s after the new look is instituted.
There is also be a makeover planned for of the 13-year old Crystal Lake Outback Steakhouse this year.
