Who are the 4030s?
We’ve only known each other less than a year, but we work together every day. Shortly after we all started working together, we decided that it would be fun to go on a “team-building lunch” every Friday to get to know each other on a more personal level. So every time Friday rolled around there was the inevitable question: “Where should we eat this week?”
We looked to the internet to answer this question for us, yet we couldn’t find a resource to let us know what to expect at any certain restaurant. We all like to eat and have a good time, but we’re also passionate about getting good food and good service any time we go to a restaurant. Because part of our work at the office involves website-building, we decided to start our own blog to get more practice! Since we made this decision to start our blog, we have visited numerous restaurants, well-known or not, to try to give a fair look into every restaurant in the Rocket City. See where we’ve been and get a short overview of some of our favorite restaurants here.
Meet the Team
The Detective is the Office Manager of Wise Pat’s moving company. Growing up in a large family, home-cooked meals were the norm for The Detective. She and her siblings were usually the ones doing the cooking! She loves to experiment with new recipes to try with her husband, The Engineer (below).
At work, The Detective is awesome at her job and gets compliments from moving clients all the time. She has a strong background in customer service, having had various jobs emphasizing that quality in the past. The Detective also enjoys playing ultimate Frisbee, being involved at church, and hosting friends for dinner.
The Engineer is a recent addition to our team at the office, bringing intellectual debates and riddles with him. He and Mr. Clearwater literally spend hours discussing things that go over most of our heads.
Having recently moved to Huntsville from Nashville, The Engineer hasn’t had the opportunity to sample many of the standard Huntsville eateries, but has a sophisticated palate, so we value his fresh opinion!
The Engineer is currently enrolled at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, studying… Engineering, of course! We’re so proud!
Pat, co-owner of Bolt Movers, grew up just outside of Auburn, AL. He moved to Huntsville shortly after he graduated from college in 2014 to join Mr. Clearwater in business ventures. Pat is a culinary connoisseur, always wanting to share his food exploits with the population of Instagram.
Wise Pat runs a successful moving company with his brother. These two are an unstoppable force in the moving industry, providing top-level customer service and care in their business.
Also, You may recognize Pat from his appearance on Survivor in 2017. He got voted off the island pretty early on in the season, but we still love him and he’s a winner in our eyes!
The Boss was born and raised in Huntsville and loves seeing the new growth of the city, especially the new restaurant options! The Boss is a graduate from the University of Alabama in Huntsville where she majored in Business Administration. Her interests include traveling with her husband, photography, cooking, and hunting for treasures in thrift and antique stores. But her favorite pastime is eating. The Boss has been known to plan road trips around good restaurants in the area so that she can try new foods.
With her background in learning business administration in college and working in the restaurant industry after college, restaurant food quality and service practices are fascinating to The Boss and she looks forward to giving her opinion about new and old restaurants in the Rocket City!
The Hipster is one of our administrators in the office. She loves exploring the quickly-developing city of Huntsville and is always on the leading edge of hip new trends. We rely on The Hipster to keep us up-to-date on what’s happening on Instagram and Twitter and she and Mr. Clearwater enjoy discussing current events on the reg.
The Hipster is currently enrolled at Calhoun Community College where she is studying Business Administration. She plans to transfer to UAH and graduate with a BSBA. She is a hard worker and we know she has a bright and promising future ahead of her!
Mr. Clearwater, founder and owner of High Johnson Internet Media (and, therefore, the brains of this operation), loves delicious food. Having lived in Huntsville his whole life (except for four years at Auburn University) he has grown up sampling the wide variety of eclectic tastes of the Rocket City.
In his free time, Mr. Clearwater loves to work. He works so much we can’t even fathom it. Sometimes we get to work in the morning to realize he’s been at the office all night long… working. He’s the most motivated person we know, and we’re so happy to have him as our boss and leader! Mr. ClearWater also recently launched the McStoven Real Estate Agency in 2019 in order to expand his scope of business.
The youngest of the crew, The Apprentice, will graduate from high school this year. After he graduates, he plans to attend Auburn University to study Accounting and also get involved with the athletics department. The Apprentice has experience with both customer service and the food industry, having worked at Chick-fil-A during his high school years. He still loves Chick-fil-A, visiting them multiple times a week.
After work hours, The Apprentice likes to hang out with his friends, go to movies, and, like most teenage guys, catch up on sleep. He also participates on the debate team at his school.
