Breckenridge Job Search
Yesterday I woke up rather late about 9:30 AM. My body is still adjusting to the altitude change, but for the most part I can still function. My original plan entailed checking out the outlets in Silver Thorne and going to Frisco for some sight seeing, but I ended up missing the bus and heading towards Columbine Cafe. I ordered their Courtyard special, which consisted of three fluffy pancakes, smoked, crispy bacon, hash-browns, and whipped scrambled eggs. I spoke to the bartender who gave me the paper and told me a few places to check out that normally hire. He suggested I drop an application off at Bubba Gump’s restaurant…they are always looking for help.
I scarfed down my food and headed to Bubba Gump’s where I spoke with Johnny. I told him about the tour and how I got to Colorado. They appeared to be interested, but leaned more towards staff with restaurant experience, particularly in serving and hosting. He told me if a dish washing or bus boy position opened up they would give me a ring. I looked at the paper again, briefly scanning cool places to work and stumbled upon Blue River Sports. I walked in and spoke with Andy who handed me an application. He told me to fill it out and attach my resume to it. I told him I came a long way and did not have access to a printer. He gave me directions to the local library near City Market, a mile down the road, and told me to bring it back when I got the chance.
I hustled down the road, walking at a fast pace and wound up grabbing some Goretex boots, 50% off, at a local ski/board shop. They only cost $75.00 and I figured I would definitely need them to keep my feet warm since the minimalist shoes are only good in spring or summer seasons. I continued on and wound up stopping at the UPS store, where two computers were available in 15 minute increments for a few dollars. I spent about $4.00 to use the computer and print off ten copies of my resume. On the way back to Blue River Sports I dropped a resume off at a local bike repair shop and did not really see any other stores on the way that caught my eye.

Once I made it to Blue River Sports I handed Andy my application and resume and he told me to stop by Tuesday morning at 10 AM for an interview. I thanked him and a huge smile went across my face.
I walked back to the Fireside Inn where I met up with some older women who were in town on a firefighter conference. They all retired from the force and some lived in CO, MD and France. They introduced themselves as Sylvia, Suzie, and Katherine. We drank some TommyKnocker Ales, Pumpkin Blue Moons, chatted and played this game called Mexican Train with dominoes. I never played it before, but enjoyed it. We played until about 10 PM and me being exhausted decided to hit the sack and call it a night.
