Turf Club is hiring, re-opening in August

When the Turf Club triumphantly reopens later this year, the place will need a much larger staff to handle St. Paul's favorite hole-in-the-wall music venue's new kitchen. Hiring is now underway.

Closed since June 1 for extensive renovations to its ventilation, roofing, bars, fire suppression system, and the new kitchen, the Turf now has a timetable for return, according to new owner First Avenue. "We'll be open for concerts starting on August 28," says First Avenue general manager Nate Kranz. "Depending on construction schedules and staff training we may be open for food and drinks a few days prior to that." See also: Turf Club to close for summer renovations

As of now, the first show publicly scheduled is the release show for a new Hammerhead EP on August 29.

According to a statement released by the Turf Club/First Avenue:

"The Turf Club is hiring! We're looking for experienced, conscientious, and hard-working candidates to join our tight-knit team. We're re-opening in late August with a full kitchen, daytime hours, and a jam-packed concert schedule. You should be passionate about music, food, local beer and spirits, and the events we host. High-volume experience 100% necessary."

Positions available include:

* Servers * Bartenders * Security * Chef/Kitchen Manager * Line Cooks * Prep Cooks

If interested, you should send your resume to [email protected], with your desired position in the subject line of the email.

Even if you're not looking for work, it's exciting to remember that only a few short weeks stand between now and the Turf's return.
