Town Hall [2340 Wisconsin Ave.] in Glover Park is currently hiring the following positions:

We are a busy neighborhood gem that is gearing up to open our large back patio. We are looking for a couple self starters and friendly faces to join our team! We are offering both full time and part time availability, with plenty of room to grow within our company. This is not an ad for bartenders… please do not tell me about how sweet bartending school was, and do not inquire about the server position if you plan on interviewing and asking about a bartending position. Please include a resume (previous service industry experience is not required) as well as a well thought out reason as to why you think you would make a great addition to our team. Students are welcome to apply as well; however, we are looking for people that would stay throughout the summer.

If you’re interested (and not a bartender), here is a link to the ad: Craigslist.
