Dine Out For No Kid Hungry Success!

Thanks to everyone who supported Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry this September, we’re going to beat our fundraising goal of $5 million, and that means many more kids will get the food they need to learn, grow and be healthy.

A year ago that goal seemed impossibly high to some—it was double what we’d achieved in 2011, and the restaurant industry was predicting modest growth in a slowly…

Independents, Chains Grow for First Time in Two Years

After two years of little to no growth, the restaurant industry added more chain and independent establishments this spring.



That’s according to “Spring 2012 ReCount,” a new report from The NPD Group. The increase in restaurants is attributed to people eating out more often and spending more money on eating out, both of which are positive signs.



Overall, 2,872 new restaurants were opened between March 2011 and March 2011, marking the first positive growth rate for both…

My Dining Out Meal Plan Under 1,700 Calories

Who says that eating out can’t be low cal?  I say as long as you have the information available, you can make healthier decisions at any eatery.  Working the San Francisco Financial District (or as we locals call it the FiDi) I have a lot of dining options at my fingertips.  Here is an example full day of restaurant-purchased meals complete with calorie counts in my healthy eating range:

Hospitality Service Improvement - Create an Efficient Restaurant Tip-Out System



The "Tip-Out System" is a very important part of hospitality service improvement for many different reasons. Tips are the basic salary for most hospitality service employees, and must be divided with utmost respect and care. The staff's reputation, morale and income depend on a proper and fair tip-out system.

There are certain factors that must be taken into consideration, before deciding on a correct and fair tip- out system. The most important concept…

Restaurants Replacing Home Ec

I can’t stop thinking about the comments that I received after a blog I wrote a few months ago about how menu labeling was not having the desired effect on some restaurants in low income areas. A lot of you brought up some really good points about consumer responsibility and education, but I was really intrigued by the comments that I got about lack of cooking skills and less in-home food preparation.… Continue

I Hope She Dumps The Boyfriend

Tonight I am serving this young couple when the guy finishes ahead of her and ask me to pack the leftovers for him. She hasn't yet finished but he doesn't seem to care so I pack up his leftovers. Normally I let them pack it but it was slow so what the heck. He had an air about him that I didn't like at all. He was just full of himself.



Well she is still eating when he sees me and ask , can I see a dessert menu? You know if that is one thing that bugs me is when someone will not wait… Continue

Call me the poster girl for "cooking at home hazardous to your health"

A recent open letter from the National Restaurant Association in Nation's Restaurant News seeks to rally the industry around a proposed campaign to "debate the notions currently going unchallenged in the public forum" - notions suggesting consumers can save significant sums by eating at home.



While it's true that the mass media - TV, talk show hosts, etc. - has promoted this theory, it's not clear how well their message has resonated with consumers. According to NRA, research shows… Continue

Why restaurants will survive

A friend of mine and I were having dinner last night in a Vietnamese restaurant in Boston when he inadvertently told me exactly why restaurants are going to survive this recession...at least those that are doing a good job and offer value to the customer.



"Restaurants," he declared, "are my kitchen."



Brilliant - and so true!



Several generations have now been raised in this country that do not know about cooking. However, many of them are dedicated "foodies" -… Continue

Looking ahead to a brighter new year

The old year is winding down and here in the northeast, it's really cold and blustery - the wind is howling down my chimney as I write. Will Santa bring us a better New Year and an end to the drumbeat of bad news, commentators who can't stop commenting on it, and grumpy detractors who want to connect the President-Elect to the very belligerent and possibly criminal Illinois governor.



What lies ahead is up to us! I began a column on my website early this year called "Value Vault,"… Continue

Why you need to get out and Vote.

After knocking on hundreds of doors working to get the vote out last night after a hard days work we ran into Dave Chappelle at PF Changs. I asked him what he was doing in Ohio. He said "I flew into vote, I guess my vote is pretty damn important." I told him I was getting up early to drive back to Lexington to vote, turning right around to head back to the buckeye state to knock on more doors. I told the Talent Revolution team that joined me this was good training for recruiting, it was like… Continue

Dining and discounts

Visit any news site, and you'll see stories regarding our nation's current economic woes everywhere. The stories come from both sides of the cash register — business owners and consumers both are feeling the stings from higher energy prices, inflation, plummeting property values... you get the idea. I'm just repeating what experts, talking heads and the like are telling all of us all the time.

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.
