"Great advice!! Yes, a blog takes a TON of work and it's only effective if you're actually consistent and writing about things that educate/inform your readers.  I don't read too many blogs from restaurants, but Protein Bar here…"

Restaurants: How to Make the Most of Facebook's New Look for Pages

Posted on February 29, 2012 at 6:53am 3 Comments

The official announcement from Facebook is today, but there are tips floating around the interwebs.  Below are a rundown of some links to check out.

This is an opportunity for restaurants to really think about how you graphically represent your brand.  There's a large "cover" image that will go at the top of your page.  It's not…

Is Downsizing the Next Restaurant Trend?

Posted on February 15, 2012 at 7:00am 0 Comments

One of the primary arguments for providing calorie information at restaurants is that it will help people make better choices.  As Americans continue to expand at the waist, we're seeing that while knowledge might be power, it's not enough to alter decisions.

A new study from…

5 Reasons To Launch A Facebook Contest for Your Restaurant

Posted on February 7, 2012 at 5:56am 8 Comments

As many restaurant owners have found, investing in an active Facebook page takes consistency, creativity, and time.

Creating a Facebook page and leaving it to sit dormant is like having customers sitting in your booths and no servers to take their order or fill up their glasses.  Customers get annoyed and your restaurant look like they don't care.

Running a contest on your restaurant's Facebook fan page is a great way to grow your…

Why I’ll use Foursquare to find my next meal

Posted on January 13, 2012 at 9:30am 2 Comments

I'm not a big Yelp-er. Neither are most of my friends.

When I got to find a new restaurant, the search function in Yelp allows for many ways to target, but it's still overwhelming.

If Yelp isn't your thing, Foursquare's new "Explore" function is a must.

The search function begins…

Restaurant Daily Deals: Like Get Skinny Fast Diets?

Posted on September 14, 2011 at 5:22am 0 Comments

A show of hands if you are happy swimsuit season is just about over. You're not the only one!

As the restaurant daily deal sphere drones on, I can't help but compare them to a "get skinny fast" method that people use to drop a few pounds before hitting the beach. Sure, you can probably shed a pound or two by drinking a strange, green liquid and starving yourself for 72 hours. By the third day, you'll be running toward a bakery fast than Kirstie Alley can say "Jenny…

Hi, Josh...
Many thanks. . Yes, Jim is a good friend and respected colleague. He's one of the original "good guys" in my opinion -- a fighter for truth and *business outcomes*. His book is great stuff! Nice to know you.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
