    It's a German Bier Garden. Their mugs are 1 liter. That should last you a good bit. It takes longer to fill, but you're not gonna make several trips to the bar. The food? Again, it's a Bier Garden. It's not a place to have dinner, but the perfect place to chill with a friend or 2 and b.s. &...

    What irritates you the most at restaurants?

    The Knoxville Christmas Parade brings out a "special" crowd every year. The majority are honest parents out with their kids, but scattered around are the visitors that just have that talent for ruining the night for the rest. Gay St is not Bourbon St. Being cut off is how we protect that guest...

    What is Cruze Farms putting in their ice cream? They opened their new, permanent store tonight on Gay St & had a line down the block.

    20% sounds good, right? Don't forget the 20%ers of a $25 bill and stayed for 3.5 hours. They think they tipped well, but don't realize they actually just robbed their server of making more. On average, guest time at a table is 45 minutes. The server "flips" tables all shift, & each rotation is...

    Death Wish - I enjoyed it for what it was, but constantly though Willis was the wrong actor. We've been watching him for 30 years in "proffesional badass" roles. It was weird watching him as the complete opposite...

    I gained a little bit of hope tonight. Our top 3 kitchen guys are on vacation, and we decided to give a rookie a chance to not only prove himself, but to step up & be a leader. He turned 21 3 days ago. Easily the youngest on BoH staff. We have 25,30,40+ year old guys back there. They...

    Nope. Then it looks like we are just bs'ing instead of working. "Fish Bowl", eyes are always on you. Perception is everything. Whether the teammates are communicating about legit business or not, the guest only sees horseplay. There are correct ways for both situations to be done.

    Earlier tonight, I was held hostage by my ears by two 40 year old men arguing over the original Les Miserable & the most recent. 20 minutes I stood there & it didnt end until I said Hugh Jackman was hot. (Not that theres anything wrong with that. I just wanted it to end) Not another word was spoken.

    This is a topic I address more than I should with some staff members. When you're behind the bar, you're in a "fish bowl". You're always being watched & every spoken word is heard... By someone... There is not an invisible wall that hides you. Same with wait-stations. Some servers like to...

    Ive inadvertently created a nee rating system. I have several eye witnesses to vouch for me. Bigdaddy being one of said witnesses. 0-10, how soon I fall asleep in the theatre. 0 being by the end of the first scene, im snoring... Literally. 10 being, eyes open through the entire film, and...

    The economy works in mysterious ways... Sellers want to make a profit. That's why they opened their doors. A great GM will understand what & where they are, & pander to their clientele to reap the most of the available benifits. Buyers have disposable income. They want to give their cash away...

    Amateur hour at its finest tonight. A trio of gals in their 40's came in, walked straight to the bar & asked "where do we order drinks?".... .... "Here?" "Do y'all have liquor?" Over my shoulder in clear view are a over a hundred bottles.... Another guest; "I'll take a mountain light"...
