There is a family that frequents our restaurant that almost always asks for donations for various events with a specific charity. We know they do a lot of work with this charity because 2 of the family members are afflicted with this ailment. Today they came in with a gift certificate that we had donated. While there is a chance that they came by this fair and square (an auction item or a prize) the servers all began mentioning the fact that they always seem to have one. Today's was…Continue

While I myself am not in the food industry (a Minister here), the State of Florida is currently in the process of working on legislation to CUT the hourly salary of servers and bartenders from $4.65 to $2.13 an hour. From what I understand, this is not a 'mandatory' action that would affect every business in the state, however it is being pushed by and certainly would be enforced by most of, if not all of the large 'chain-style' restaurants & bars. This bill is being pushed by the…Continue
