Have you ever heard of Patriot Pub? Mrs. d’Amato’s class did Patriot Pub on Nov. 9, 2018. Patriot Pub is when Mrs. d’Amato’s classroom transforms into a restaurant for teachers and parents. The teachers and parents go to the classroom and eat delicious food the students make and serve. Only parents of kids in the class are invited. Patriot Pub happens every other month.

The students have Patriot Pub because they want to practice for real jobs.  The money is used for community trips, overnight trips and field trips. The students cooked Texas sheet cake, made tortilla bowls for taco salads and prepared everything else.

The classroom is set up to look like a restaurant. Tables are pushed together. The students set the tables with place settings and centerpieces. Meals are served cafeteria-style. There is a table where the teachers and parents can get their taco salad toppings, such as olives and tomatoes. There is also a cash register where customers pay five dollars for the entire meal. Music plays in the background so people have something to listen to, just like at a real restaurant.

Patriot Pub is a very busy day. We look just like chefs working at a real restaurant. Students have a planned schedule for their jobs. Mrs. d’Amato makes the schedule. Students put on their aprons and start serving the salad. The parents and teachers can talk to each other and mingle as they eat.

Some kids are off during a shift. Those kids can watch a movie in the Student Services conference room. Students come and go as the movie plays.

Mr. Burtch talks about his experience at Patriot Pub.

“It was my first time down there. It was the first time I had a student who worked for Patriot Pub – you!” Mr. Burtch, the journalism teacher, says. “Part of the reason I wanted to come down was so I could take part and learn more about Patriot Pub.”

When asked about his experience, Burtch says it was very enjoyable.

“I liked the atmosphere,” Burtch says. “I was definitely happy with my service. I was full when I left. Everyone there had big smiles on their faces. I liked the fact that everyone was friendly. Some of my colleagues were down there. It was a great place to have lunch and make conversation.”

And of course, you can’t forget about the food.

“The food was delicious. It was served in a serving container by people in the class,” Burtch says. “It was made with love.”
