I think Austin Bar Owners Got Sick of SxSW This Year

Every year, thousands of tech geeks, rockers and hipsters descend on Austin, TX for the annual South by South West Festival (SxSW). It’s a week of conferences, discussion panels, tech launches but most of all partying, networking and more partying.



It might be a lucrative week for the bar owners, but it;s not an easy one, with all-nighters common and a few too many drunk revellers to handle.



I think this particular bar owner had enough. What do you think…? (warning: bad… Continue

Should Bartenders Be Assigned To A Certain Section of The Bar

I received this question this week at http://thebarblogger.com/askbarry:



We run a very popular restaurant w/an 20 seat L-shaped bar and a service area at the end for servers lets the 3 bar tenders working any shift roam up & down with no assigned section nor one of the 3 designated for service exclusively.Sometimes the wait is long for servers and bar patrons/customers.Is it not sound business to assign them a… Continue

Would You Pay Your Bar Tab With Your iPhone?

It had to happen. It was only a matter of time before there was “an app for that”. Customers can now open, monitor and close their tab from their iphone with a clever new app called TabbedOut.



Invented in Austin, TX and so far only available to use in a handful of cities there, it seems to be (at first glance) a very useful app that meets the needs of a customer base increasingly used to doing business on their… Continue

How to Get More Customers To Your Area

On a recent trip to Dallas, TX I learned about Restaurant Row.

Restaraunt Row in Dallas is the two mile area along I-35E around Walnut Hill, so named for the number of restaurants and entertainment venues attracting locals and tourists to an otherwise unremarkable area. (There are supposed to be over 150 within a two mile radius)

Many guide books, hotels and tourism agencies recommend people visit this area bringing much additional revenue to the area. Could you replicate this in your… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

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.
