A little story of my “Trident days!
Ahhh “The Trident”, my very first job, ever! I met so many cool people, celebrities (Rod Stewart, who whistle to get my attention and got my reply as his friends were flabbergasted), the Stones whom I partied with at the Mark Hopkins, Bill Wyman, who had a thing for me and sent his limo to pick me up at 3 am to hang with him at the Record Plant (his woman at the time who threatened me for being with him), and oh so many other interesting men I met!.
I worked with some of the most amazing women I have ever known! I am forever grateful of having been there at that special time. Shout out to my girls, Mimi (RIP), Patsy , Monique, Katie, Jan, Noreen, Leigh, Kathleen, Marsha, Donna, Poppy, Cassandra, Stevie, Bonnie, Sharlee, Herta (my partner in Boob Flashing the Ferry first thing in the morning!). Remembering how we all trailed to the ladies room when someone gave us a stash! A special thank you to the man who came every day I worked and gave me a $100 bill folded and full! (you know who you are). These women somehow are part of my life!
Bobby the bartender who was always pissed at me cuz I didn’t know how to order the drinks, he once told me it was a good thing I was so cute, because i sucked as a waitress…bahahaha. The kitchen guys whom I always flashed (for my orders) , just to make them smile, Pierre (RIP) who loved my boobs! I could have anything I wanted in that kitchen, I loved my job! Lou the sweetest and most compassionate man I ever met, his family, also form part of my entourage of dear people close to my heart growing as a woman.
I learned and mentally grew at that restaurant. I will forever be thankful to have been one of the Trident Girls, even though I was told many times that I wouldn’t be hired because of this! I tell the tales to my kids, (sans some details) of how I was such an outrageous waitress, what a great time we had! These memories will forever live in my heart!
Thank you Mark for giving me the chance to connect with some of the girls and
re live some of that wonderful ride that was “The Trident”
