Local restaurants, servers sought to take part in first‐time
Waiter's Race July 28
The City's Prelude in the Park is best known for its
fun‐filled activities that lead up to the Pacific
Symphony concert, but on July 28, the event will also feature
a race course with some of the speediest
waiters in town vying
o be first across the finish line in a competition to raise
money for a good cause.
The challenge? To balance a fully loaded tray, including a
wine bottle and two empty glasses while speed walking a
weaving course through a jam‐packed crowd on the Village
Green at Oso Viejo Park without dropping a thing. The grand
prize winner will receive $500, with the second and third
$200 and $100, respectively.
Wait staff representing local restaurants are invited to take
part in the "Waiter's Race," hosted by the
City of Mission Viejo, Mission Viejo Chamber of Commerce and
the Mission Viejo Rotary. The race will give restaurants a
chance to promote their businesses and support a good cause.
Registration is $100 and includes up to two waiters along
with the eatery's name in the program, on the
racer's bib, the City's website and mo e. Proceeds
will benefit local scholarships to Saddleback College.
The tradition of the waiter's race began in France, where it
is known as the "course de garcons de café." It was designed
to draw recognition to the honorable profession of waiting
tables and also to test waiters' skills and perhaps even
improve their service. The race falls in line with this
year's Target Symphony in the Cities' musical
prelude "Paris in the Park" theme.
