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: 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.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
