Uh oh! You know, it's about time someone spoke up and said things the way they really are! I'm glad Anthony came up to the plate and spoke the truth! Had someone done this with Mtv 25 years ago they'd still be playing music videos today! Here's the LINK. Eric
I could go on and on with wonderful advice, but I'll limit it to just a few key points: 1. Be ready to take on a new marriage. 2. Be ready for long hours, low pay, and hard work. 3. Be ready to compete. 4. Be ready to be a babysitter (being a boss). 5. Be ready for the unexpected. I know this all sounds vague, but anyone who has 'been there, done that' will agree these five points are just a beginning. Not trying to discourage you, just pointing...
This is just the beginning of it all. Before long, the size of hamburger you eat at any restaurant will be the official size of the United States Government. Get used to it. It's sad that it's all come to this. But this is how bad things have gotten for bored legislatures who know nothing about food. Screw them. Maybe they should all go through a 7-day culinary course to see what food is all about! We'll call it the "Eat My Legislature" program! (heehhehehehe)....
I think this is an informal "pre-emptive" strike on people who spend money in restaurants! I think this is bad policy for restaurants. I think this is bad for the restaurants business. People will be "scared" to go out if this continues. Which means less customers! This needs to be thought out more accurately than it is now..... *(Just my point of view).

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commision has randomly begun raiding bars in the Dallas area, and arresting bar patrons, servers, bartenders, bar owners, and bar managers for overserving their customers. Here's the story: http://www.restaurantedge.com/index....=1&newsid=1394 Public intoxication in Texas .08, or roughly two drinks for the average person. http://studentlife.tamu.edu/scrs/sls/FAQpi.htm This is bad news for anyone who owns a bar or restaurant in...
All I can say is, get ready to stand on your feet for long hours! Your feet are going to hurt. Your knees are going to hurt. And your hip is going to hurt. Don't worry, you'll get used to it in time....... Eric http://www.restaurantedge.com
I'm working with a restaurant that has the same problem. Their solution: Make the deck people order expensive entree's instead of regular menu items. The reason why is that it will deter people from just wanting to sit out there and drink, AND it will turn those seats into dollars! This is in Wisconsin, the one I'm working with is in Michigan, so it's seasonal on both sides of the lake. You don't want campers sitting at your prime tables for three, four hours...
Ok.... this is a little pet-peeve I have with waitstaff uniforms. Being a restaurant pro that I am, I have to be real honest about our waitstaff's uniforms. Don't customers notice when a waiter or waitress comes to work in a uniform that is either dirty, smelly or wrinkled? I know this doesn't affect the food, but doesn't this speak volumes about the organization of the person wearing this uniform? .........just fielding my thoughts to intelligent...
What Makes a Destination Restaurant? By Eric Hahn What does it take to drive people to your door from somewhere else? Is it the food, ambience, price, service? Well sure it is, but what if people in the town next to yours do not know this? Marketing to your customers in neighboring communities is a valuable technique that will help build your sales for the long term and expand the popularity of your establishment. Let’s face it, most people have a favorite...
