In the Weeds: Making Waves

June 23, 2009

This week’s entry will be significantly shorter than the long rant from last week. (You’re welcome). My legs have only been on land for about 24 hours and the rum has only recently begun to dissipate from my circulatory system. I spent the last 8 days at sea and in St. Thomas and St....

In the Weeds: Good Day, Sir!

I ended last week’s column with an unintentional cliffhanger. The feedback I received was mostly of the “yeah, uh huh, and then what??” variety.

In The Weeds: The KC Steinbrenner

In the Weeds: Cast of Characters-Part 2

In the Weeds: Cast of Characters–Part 1

In my first column, I said that the most interesting people I meet in the restaurant biz are not sitting at the tables but are working on the floor with me, and occasionally flashing their balls in the pantry.  So I’m going to introduce you to this cast of characters over the next few...

In the Weeds: Where the F is my Black Card?

May 19, 2009

This is one of my favorite scenes from an all-time favorite movie. In Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs,” this early scene sets the pace for Tarantino’s dialogue-heavy trademark style. Mr. Pink refuses to tip and his rationale is at once riveting and revolting.
