The Final Prez Debate: A Vegas Threesome

Three is the magic number. The third Presidential debate was everything Goldilocks was looking for, and I don’t mean Trump. Although I’m pretty sure he thinks it was. All disjointed delusional billionaires aside, this debate was perfect for anyone who had seen all three or just this one. The first

Why Everyone Should Work in a Restaurant

Everyone should work in a restaurant at least once. Ask any server, bartender, barista, cook, dishwasher, buser, greeter, and they’ll agree. It’s a conversation I often have with other people in the restaurant industry.

Trump Fortune-Telling Machine Placed at Trump Tower

Remember the movie Big with Tom Hanks? When he puts a coin into an unusual antique arcade fortune teller machine called ‘Zoltar Speaks’, and makes a wish to be “big”. It dispenses a card stating “Your wish is granted”…
