Thanks......


If I were you and I was considering buying a magazine today I'd buy Olive magazine.

I'm in it, just, what other reason do you need?

clicky to make biggy

In other news I passed the 100,000 hits mark yesterday.

Thanks for that!

Waiter Club tomorrow, it's bloody great!

25 People trying to get Manuel's attention:

Medbh said...

Huzzah!
Manuel, you should be featured in every magazine related to the biz.

100,000 hits is fan-fucking-tastic!
Let's make it 500,000 by the end of the summer.

Manuel said...

medbh: no, way too many! Cheers though.....got a right buzz from that today when I saw it....

bendersbetterbrother said...

Two words. Product placement. Forget about ethics and pish like that, just sell your soul (for château briande and lobster).

belfast plate carrier said...

Well, my gaffer was well impressed by the 'I'd sell my girlfriend's shoes to eat there again' comment about the old place. But I will be buying that mag to read (and therefore be able to defend against) the 'How to complain in a restaurant (and win)' feature. No lowly punter wins against the Belfast Plate Carrier.

Quickroute said...

Thought of you when I saw an article in an inflight mag about the future of waiting tables being in danger as they are introducing touch screen terminals with photos of the menu where you just choose yourself instead of having a waiter take your order - I nixed the idea on account of the numerous tales of woe that we would miss!

savannah said...

well done, sugar! double congratulations to you! *raising my G&T to you* xoxox

Old Knudsen said...

I'd say well done but I'm a cunt. That's why you haven't been commenting on me yer too big now trying to distance yerself from the likes of me I'm going to write a nasty review of the Pancake hoose then you'll be sorry. You've changed man..................... well thank fuck cos you were a bad un.

problemchildbride said...

Congratu-very-lations, Manuel! You thoroughly deserve that.

And well done on passing 100,000 too. Who was the 100,000th? Can you tell?

MJ said...

How much do you think the tabloids would pay me for that photo of your sugarloaf?

toast said...

hey, this officially means i can start the backlash, the 'it was much funnier in the old days' 'he's sold out now' 'you know the company that makes check trousers for chefs? i heard they sponsor the blog, them and sara lee deserts i heard it on an internet once' You know when nirvana were meant to play the conor hall and the useless tool collapsed and postponed the gig and when they came back they were the biggest band in the world and so had to play in the worst venue in the northern hemisphere, the kings hall? well i kept my ticket for the conor hall - i have that pinned up by a printout of my first post on this blog - i reserve the right to backlash against both at will.

congrats lad, this and NYC bikesnob are the only two blogs i read regularly and tbh NYCBS is losing it a little - you're not - keep it up

Manuel said...

bbb: you say it like it's a bad thing.....and I only mention the mag as I'm in it........and not because of the great offer with it if you subscribe now......

bpc: Funnily enough it was the first thing I saw too.....might have to do a post on it......

quickie: it's the bloody Germans again isn't it? What's their problem with waiters eh eh?

savannah: gin gin!

old k: hahahahahahahaha

sam: who knows! I could go check but really couldn't be bothered......it's in the past......we have to move on.........

mj: did you get that money I sent you?

toast: sara lee? hahahahahaha......I don't write a thing until I get my black forest gâteaux (frozen).....cheers toast

bendersbetterbrother said...

Congratulations on being in the mag, that wasn't what I was meaning.I'm saying use the blog to write reviews for steaks. Cash in. You can be bought. Just let them know how much.

bendersbetterbrother said...

...and, in the spirit of things, 15% for me.

Manuel said...

bbb: if you keep setting me up then yes......

Conan Drumm said...

Just imagine if every hit was a miserly 50p tip... you'd be made.

I see franchise opportunities, an Angela's Ashes style memoir, the lecture circuit, celebrity, issues with gin, rehab, boring sobriety chats on NI talkshows, falling off the wagon, Big Brother, adultery, tabloid pics, rehab, homelessness... best quit while you're ahead!

sheepworrier said...

Fair play to ya big lawd.

Im actually more interested in the "How to complain in a restaurant and win" article tho...

Blondefabulous said...

100,000 hits? Must be doing something right. Congrats on the mag mention. It didn't capture your usual charm and wit, but hopefully the readers will follow the link to your blog and see the true Manuel. (Builders, bad tippers, and all!)

Sparkalina said...

Congrats! As you probably know I found you through waiterrant, and I really enjoy reading your blog everyday!

As I am a little slow, though, I just figured out that I could subscribe in a reader so I am now official!

Gypsy said...

Woo hoo...congratulations on both counts. I think I only recently passed 10,000 hits but I rarely check to be honest. Now I feel hopelessly inadequate...sniff.

jen said...

Yay! Fantastic news :-) I will go out and buy it as soon as possible.

Common Law said...

Good job on the hits!!
That article says Manuel is a non de plume. Is it not your real name??? I feel quite let down.

Manuel said...

conan: that's the sort of math I like......hell I'd take a penny a hit right now......

sheepo: I'll get that dealt with soon.....

blondie: I KNOW THE FUCKERS!

Spakalina: well done you.....join the cub n that....

gypsy: me either.......just about 4 times an hour....

jen: it's not a bad mag actually...

the law: howdy....don't see you round these parts often...if you knew my real name you'd be really let down....

Ruth Elkin said...

I just read it in the mag. Congrats!

And congrats on the 100,000 hits!

Manuel said...

ruth: First time i've got it.....it's quite good eh....?
