Michelle Casalli Position: Server  Years in the industry: 7  The Happy Gnome St. Paul Happy Gnome's very own Charles Lovejoy. He is consistently creating innovative and delicious cocktails for the Gnome. He makes bold choices with new ingredients and often adds exciting tweaks to old favorites.

On weekend brunches and dinners, the kitchen will cook meals for 500 to 700 people during a shift. And Pat is the executive chef that keeps everyone together. He'll jump behind the line to make sure everything gets out right and he seldom gets frazzled. But really all the people behind the line deserve it, if I can add that addendum.
