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).

Walled gardens, falling inventory and how video will change in 2016

The online video landscape is constantly changing, but recent changes have been more seismic than others. With the launch of YouTube Red, Google has thrown up a wall around video, dramatically reducing the amount of pre-roll inventory available. Meanwhile Facebook, the web’s fastest growing video platform is transitioning out of third party video ad serving entirely leaving marketers with fewer alternatives. Outstream and mobile may soon supplant instream pre-rolls, but even these new formats hold challenges. Click to learn more about exactly where video stands in 2016.

Google is banning Flash ads beginning in 2017

Google is yet again twisting the knife into Adobe's Flash software. Beginning in 2017, Google won't display ads on its advertising network based on the malware-prone technology. Instead, it's pushing developers to use HTML5, a safer alternative. It's the latest assault on Flash -- on the heels of bashings from Amazon, Firefox and even the New York Times -- which can't have long left to live.
