    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"...

    What irritates you the most at restaurants?

    Tuesdays are weird. I start off by having a bum fight out front, a lady letting me know several times she use to tend bar & "this isnt how Bravo makes it". A young gal proudly flashing her ladybojangles to everyone, two bros swapping shirts in full view, another bro broke a glass & sliced his...

    We have a motto. "We're a great place to start, but not to finish" We want you to get to your next destination safely. Wether it's another bar or home... "I'm not driving..." Doesn't mean you won't walk into an oncoming vehicle. Dram shop laws means 3rd party liability. I've had the...

    Heres a little inside info... Servers have the final word on gratuity. The exception, not the rule, is bold print on the menu states "gratuity for parties of 8 or more MAY be added". If a server thinks they'll be stiffed, Grat. If they think they'll make more without, they don't. The...

    From what I read, a business that takes pride in providing & promoting A+service to their guests, never actually intended on fulfilling what they promised to the audience that keeps the doors open...

    Speaking of Dennis Miller, I went around last night asking our staff if they knew who he was... Blank stares was all I received. The closest I could get to explaining was saying "the radio host in Joe Dirt". I followed up by asking them who David Spade is.... And now my headache is back...
