re: Anybody listen to Tom Fitzmorris lately? - hungryone on 7/17/18 at 3:32 pm
[quote]Like someone mentioned, he should have a younger person on as co-host. He show got stale a decade ago. The show could be amazing if there was someone on there with him that more people could relate to.

[quote]But for real, if you are considering work/life balance when thinking about what you want to do, you can probably cross investment banking off your list.

re: Anybody listen to Tom Fitzmorris lately? - hungryone on 7/17/18 at 1:59 pm
I'm not a regular listener, nor a fan, but it's always sad to see someone declining like this. If he were a different kind of person (critic, personality, whatever term you use for him), he would have recruited a younger co-host years ago to keep things fresh and relevant....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Italy in March or May? - hungryone on 7/17/18 at 1:17 pm
Amalfi gets WAY too much attention on this board. It's lovely, but the Italian boot has a ridiculous amount of lovely coastline. The Sorrentine peninsula is just one bit, dunno why everyone's so fixated on it. Go to Puglia....loads of coastline, interesting landscape, etc. Bari is a cool place,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Bourdain's Last Interview - hungryone on 7/17/18 at 11:37 am
He comes across as unhappy as hell. He only spends 5 days a month at his NY apartment, but during his precious downtime in NYC he's got 2.5 hrs to spend with a random journalist he doesn't know? It made me sad. I wonder how much his relationship with Argento had an impact on his mental health. N...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]They have never known a downtown/survival mode/adapt mode and have no idea how to handle it.[/quote] Yep. They didn't built it from scratch, so they really don't know what grandpa did or didn't do for his employees in those early days.

re: Italy in March or May? - hungryone on 7/17/18 at 11:17 am
Let's see, Easter 2019 is 4/21, so by going in March you'll miss the holiday crowds in Rome (which are crazy big). I'd go in March, personally...the weather will be on the cooler side, which is my preference for long days of touring. Spring foods will be available by then (new peas, fava beans, sp...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Labor Shortage - hungryone on 7/17/18 at 9:49 am
If all you can see are downsides, sell the damn business to someone willing to change with the times. This isn't "preserving" grandpa's legacy, this is running it into the ground. Chances are, grandpa the original entrepreneur would have seen and seized opportunities that OP is allowing to slide b...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: After your bills are paid..... - hungryone on 7/17/18 at 9:40 am

re: What's the Deal at Pulp and Grind? - hungryone on 7/16/18 at 2:34 pm
Tempest in a teapot (coffeepot?) Successful owners don't generally fire productive managers in a public fashion without cause. Even if the cause was spurious and trumped up, wouldn't you want to keep working at the place to be the kind of friendly, hospitable employee she trained you to be?

[quote]Finding the employees has been an 8 year venture that I haven't found an answer for yet.[/quote] So re-think how you're finding employees....where do you advertise?

re: Labor Shortage - hungryone on 7/16/18 at 1:09 pm
Hmm, seems like you will need to grow your own skilled workforce, rather than looking for "finished" employees. Has the business ever thought about a training and mentorship program? Pair older skilled workers with the younger ones, esp those who learn best from example/doing (rather than classroo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

If any of the group are food geeks, a side trip to Pizzeria Bianco (two locations) might be of interest. Many people credit Chris Bianco as the best pizza maker in the USA. Read more here: [link=(http://www.pizzeriabianco.com/)]LINK[/link]...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

1)Pizza bianca with porchetta, or stuffed with bresaola, arugula, and parmesan, from Roscioli bakery in Rome. 2)A real neapolitan pizza, the kind that is folded into quarters, sold from the takeout window of the old pizzerias on the via Tribunali in Naples. 3)My own homemade pies, topped with toma...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
