Dine and Dash - The Walk-Out Capitol of the World

We have a full-time security force and surveillance cameras 24/7. We are always on alert for suspects, yet, incredibly, we have a high incidence of walk-outs.…See More

Of Body Bags and Breakfast

A guest died in our restaurant.

The manager on duty, one of my trainees, was called to the table because a guest was choking. He performed Heimlich procedures, and the guest expelled a chunk of food. Then, the guest collapsed into dead weight. The young manager held him as long as he could, and performed CPR lifesaving techniques. Our security was slow to respond, however, the paramedics soon arrived to take…

Kicking and Screaming

Posted on August 8, 2012 at 7:43am 1 Comment

We have guests that I only see once a year - like now for our annual Hot August Nights event. We have been serving them for years, and at multiple locations. I love my regular guests.

So, tonight I am seating some guests, and a guy says, "My God, haven't you retired, yet?"

My answer to them was. "kicking and screaming...that's the only way I'm going out"

I love what I do.

Anti-Training and the New Economy

There’s an old steak house in Reno that hails to the Rat Pack Days. Long gone are its days of glory and professionalism.

This shot is of the cook’s line – notice the small door at the end of the line, and the small red sign above it.…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
