Chefs Depompei and Tadak prepare to cook for an onslaught of visitors.
“El Toro Loco (The Crazy Bull)” was the name of this year’s Spanish-themed first grade restaurant, run by students in Jim Ledford’s class at Alcott Elementary School. The pupils have been working on learning Spanish words and sentences all year, and this marked the culminating activity. Children filled all the jobs in the restaurant, including host/hostess, waiter/waitress, busser, manager, and cashier. They also entertained their restaurant patrons with Spanish songs, restaurant jokes, and magic. Diners agreed that the luncheon was an overwhelming success and that service was spectacular.
