Pleased to Meet You

Hi, this is Karen, the order-taker at Mission Street Food. Anthony has mentioned how surprised we've been by the popularity of the truck, but as the person out front talking to people, I also want to let you know how much I've enjoyed the feeling of community out there on Thursdays.
Last night, we started using names to call out the orders, and I think that's when it really hit me that I've been meeting a lot of wonderful people. As some of you may have guessed, I don't normally work in food service; in my regular life, I'm a grad student, so I spend a lot of time alone with my books, and it's been a real joy to talk with so many new people.
We've had a lot of favors done for us this month (our friends have cooked with Anthony in the truck, bought more ice for the cooler, run to our apartment for more post-its, and on and on), but above all I want to thank everyone for making it fun. You have made me love San Francisco even more than usual.

Karen, your scholarly pursuits have given you a wonderfully calm customer demeanor. I honestly thought you were in the business.

I set up a poll -- pick your favorite sandwich!

Please bring more brie! Worst case is you make special quesadillas at the end of the night. :)
