Best Backbreaking Service With A Smile

Alamo Drafthouse Waiters

We know waiting on tables anywhere can be a pain in the neck. But imagine serving all those bozos while they're trying to watch a film - now that's an all-over body ache. Although owners Tim and Karrie League can claim bragging rights for the five-year-old movie house's wink-wink programming and quick rise as a must-see city attraction, the unsung heroes of the Alamo Drafthouse are its 20 waiters and waitresses. They are the ones hunched over, maneuvering discreetly, and staying friendly - hoofing it back and forth so that you can get your drink on. You may not notice them (that's the point!), but they perform a noble service: They put the draft in the drafthouse.
