If customers get badly treated at a place, they will still tip maybe even tip well but they won come back. So there are external controls. Some waiters say, don need to be nice. Still, there are times when even molly gets a little crazed, “My days start at 5:45, and they generally don end [...]

My time in London wasn all work and no play.

My time in London wasn all work and no play. We did have classes, but they weren scheduled on Fridays, which left three day weekends open for travel. Air, rail, and bus travel are cheap and convenient from London. Will Cheap Trick still be playing I Want You To Want Me when they are in [...]

Be sure to get a side of the fried plantain, which comes custard soft and deeply concentrated, but with a whisper of char from the flattop. And don’t miss the excellent (but not at all typical) cabbage slaw, which the chef dresses with dill and broccoli. As for the restaurant’s name, “When I was three, [...]

This is a hand to mouth, paycheck to paycheck family.
