"So it goes" -- Kurt Vonnegut
I write about independent restaurants and marketing for Nation's Restaurant News, where I've been a copy editor for nearly four years. Check out my blog at nrnindependentthinking.blogspot.com.
I'm almost done with my master of science in journalism degree from Columbia University in New York, and I received my bachelor of science in journalism from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
During that time, I lasted six months waiting tables at The Cheesecake Factory in Skokie, Illinois. I had one guest tell my manager that I was, bar-none, the worst server he'd ever had there. Awesome.

Hey Mark - I caught your blog post about the study related to drinking. It was the title, "Cancer-Causing Cosmos" that got my attention. LOL. To answer your question, I don't think the study you talked about on your blog is going to impact restaurant owners by much. Yes, the casual drinkers may take a pause before ordering a drink, but there's a reason the governement requires bars and establishments serving alcohol to put up signs warning of the dangers of drinking while pregnant. Even though it's harmful, people still do it. No matter what, people are going to do what they're going to do. I think it will take a lot more than this study to impact the restaurant business on this issue.
I wanted to personally invite you to join our discussions in regards to cheeses at the Cheese Group on FohBoh. Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us. Take a look at all the FohBoh groups while you are at it. Looking forward to hearing from you. Dana
