Our dilemma is this: She contacted our head cook of 10+ years and has offered him $75 more…

Tipping: Good or Bad?

Lately I've been hearing a lot of debates about whether or not tipping is good for servers and diners. On the one hand, tipping is not generally based on performance and gives servers an unreliable income. On the other, it creates incentives and increases a servers opportunity to make more money. Here's a few articles I've read recently with some good information. I would love to hear some thoughts and personal expeirneces!

Restaurant Loyalty Programs- Worth It?

Lately I've been reading a lot about restaurant loyalty programs and whether or not they are worth it. The Menu Shoppe recently wrote about how loyalty programs increase revenue. I was sold until I read this blog post about how they reduce profits. I am hoping to hear from small restaurant owners who have used these programs and can talk about their results. So restaurant owners, what do you say? Is a restaurant loyalty program worth the effort?

In the News

Livio LauroSouthern Wine & Spirits of Nevada’s senior director of key accounts, and Armando Rosario, Southern’s director of mixology in Orlando, Florida, perused multiple bookstores before finally putting pen to paper. “We noticed that the cocktail book scene has become an interesting story: 500 recipes, 700 recipes, 800 recipes, 1,000 recipes, 2,000 recipes—the more the better,” Lauro says. So rather than contribute a tome boasting 2,001 recipes, they did the next logical thing: The Twelve Cocktails Everyone Needs to Know ($15,TwelveCocktails.com).

Brands rejoice: Instagram to begin showing the number of views a video gets

View counts are coming to Instagram videos for everyday users and advertisers. Video counts are a fixture on Facebook, and today the sister app is rolling them out, Instagram said today. The new setting will start showing for a limited number of users and will be available network-wide in the coming weeks, the company said. View counts are a seemingly small tweak but can be a kind of morale booster, according to advertisers.

‘She’s not plus:’ Forever 21 faces backlash over its plus-sized Instagram account

Forever 21 is facing backlash from Instagram followers over its new account dedicated to its plus-sized collection. A vocal minority is slamming the brand for the models appearing to be quite, well, average sized. "That's ridiculous!" writes one. "She is a great normal healthy size!!" But since the term "plus-sized" has a varying definition to everyone, Forever 21 has some jiggle room.
