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!

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).

Forbes guarantees its native ads will work

As native advertising has started to mature, advertisers are starting to demand to know that the editorial lookalike ads actually work. So Forbes is offering a money-back guarantee to advertisers who up their spend to $250,000 from the minimum spend of $150,000.

‘I just want to make a name for myself’: The hopes and fears of ad school students

We gathered a group of VCU Brandcenter students to ask what they want out of the ad industry. They said they'll take less money if it means a culture that values open door policies and a real kinship at work.
