Just in time for St. Patty's Day, I've put together a compendium of resources for bartenders and restaurant operators...so without further ado, here it is - the only bar guide you'll ever need.

On average, restaurants typically derive between 12% to 25% of their sales from alcoholic drinks.

Take into consideration that drinks do not require as many ingredients or as much prep time as food, and you can see that your bar could potentially be a very profitable area of your… Continue

Many months later....

We finally launched our new website and, if you're still interested in talking, I'd love to find a way to add links to each others site.

Let me know. We have a forums section of our site that has a lot of great information that your users might find helpful. I'm trying to figure where I would link to you.

Thanks and hope to hear back,

Was just in Indy for the 500. Great town! Curious, do you partner with anyone providing credit card terminal equipment?

Heard about your company from one of our techs in the Lima, Ohio area that said he was finding equipment that we service sold from Central. I love the blog part of your website and are prepping on a new site launch soon. Signed up with www.fohboh.com to see what it was all about. Thanks for the lead.

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."
