AROUND TNT

Andrew MurrayWe would lke you to meet Andrew Murray. (That's Andrew on the left in a production of Legally Blonde)  Andrew has been a server with TNT since July 2012 and is currently also leading events.  He has an engaging smile and a guest first attitude.  If you haven’t seen Andrew at an event then you may have seen him on stage around town.  We asked Andrew some questions so you could get to know him better.


What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
    Many things!  Typically working somewhere else, haha. In addition to TNT, I teach theater at a preschool for the arts on Queen Anne two days a week and work at Tom Douglas’ coffee shop in Assembly Hall.  I am also an extremely active member of the Seattle theater community, rehearsing and performing shows on the evenings and weekends.  I was grateful to be in the 5th Avenue’s production of Music Man last year, and am currently finishing up a run of La Cage Aux Folles at Second Story Repertory in Redmond.  This summer I will be helping choreograph Two Gentlemen of Verona with Wooden O, as well as performing an original children’s park show with the 14/48 Projects. Come check us out!

What is your favorite TNT menu item
    Well, seeing as ALL of our food is delicious, this is a tough question to answer.  But if I had to choose just one, I think it would be our focaccia sandwiches. Especially as we gear up for summer, there are so many iterations of these things and they are all delicious and perfect for BBQs or casual/picnic events! 

What is the best thing about working at TNT
    I love the family/community that is associated with TNT. We have a very strong foundation within the Seattle community itself, and I think that our successes are due to the genuine respect that we have for each other as employees and coworkers.  We are partners who are constantly supporting one another so that we deliver superior, gracious service, and the company does a great job of empowering us to connect with our guests and really own what we do. I also love our growing presence in the arts community. David and David are strong supporters of the arts, and I could not be happier that we are attaching our name and building our reputation at respected playhouses like ACT and Cornish/Intiman.   

Any trends, fun and interesting things you see when you work events?
    Succulents! Homespun décor!  Especially at weddings that I have worked recently, there is a large trend of reclaimed or vintage-looking decoration and utensils. Mismatched and repurposed wine glasses at the bar, burlap overlays for the table, and succulent centerpieces and accents everywhere.  It all feels very ‘Kinfolk’ to me, if you’re familiar with the magazine haha. And personally, I love it! I think it’s charming and approachable.

Do you have a favorite Restaurant or place to eat
    I LOVE to go out to dinner, so again this is a tough question for me to answer!  Currently for Dinner I love Revel in Fremont, TanakaSan Downtown, and El Quetzal on Beacon Hill. Brunch favorites are Sitka and Spruce, Tilikum Place Café, and Jade Garden for seriously good Dim Sum. And a few favorite hangouts are Bait Shop, The Old Sage, and The Neighbor Lady. 

Are there any foods that you like to make at home 
    Since I’m on the go to jobs and rehearsal often, I try to keep things simple. Stir-fry, fried rice, sloppy joes, and fajitas are staples. A simple and tasty dinner I love is pork loin roasted with brussels sprouts, onion, garlic, and fennel.  So easy, but SO flavorful.

OUR PARTNERS IN THE COMMUNITY






We are proud to have partnered with Enterprise through many years of vehicle rentals. Imagine our delight when they told us that Enterprise Holdings gives grants to their clients’ favorite worthy organizations.  Well, of course we chose PEPS (Program for Early Parent Support), also a long time partner of TNT.  We were happy to match the Enterprise grant with a donation of our own.  Among the group on the very left – that’s TNT Director of Sales Kristin Beman and to her left is Reed Haggerty our Operations Manager.  Reed as a PEPS baby 25 years ago!
