A world premiere musical that you can really sink your teeth into Get your tickets HERE!

I was a construction worker. I'm not a huge guy, so it was tough on my body doing construction all day. Plus, my band the Crystal Skulls was reuniting, and when you're working manual labor full-time, you don't have the energy to do anything creative at the end of the day.

Waiting tables all day doesn't stress you out?

It gets a little stressful when the place fills up—I'm still learning how to multitask—but for the most part, I feel like it sharpens me to be here. Keeps me on my toes.

I see you're eating a Kit Kat bar to relax. Are Kit Kats the new cigarettes in the food industry?

Actually, I ran across the street to buy cigarettes, and it just called to me. I dig Kit Kats, and I don't have as much time here to smoke as I did at my construction job.

Is waiting tables strengthening or weakening your patience?

I'm a pretty patient person, and I'd say this job only strengthens that. Our customers are generally cool people, not high-strung, and the bosses are awesome and have a lot of patience with me and my lack of experience. So, yeah, patience all around.

How's the pizza here?

It's amazing. I'm from the East Coast, so I get pretty snobby about pizza, but I've prepped everything here and so I know absolutely nothing we use is canned or prepackaged. We make the sauces and dough ourselves. Our calzones are monstrous and delicious. Plus, our menu is pretty cheap—we've got a $4.95 lunch special for a two-topping, six-inch pizza. How great is that?
