re: Anybody listen to Tom Fitzmorris lately? - hungryone
[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] He got stale....he's lived in Abita Springs for years, and he's missed (all? most...

re: Management Consulting Career - hungryone
[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. There is no balance the first few years.[/quote] Ditto for mgmt consulting. Both areas require prestige degrees and way above average abil...

re: Anybody listen to Tom Fitzmorris lately? - hungryone
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....

re: Italy in March or May? - hungryone
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,...

re: Bourdain's Last Interview - hungryone
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...

re: Labor Shortage - hungryone
[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. I'm reminded of what a restaurant manager once told ...

re: Italy in March or May? - hungryone
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...

re: Labor Shortage - hungryone
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...

re: After your bills are paid..... - hungryone
About $200....everything else is squirreled away in various other accounts. Why leave money sitting around? It is tempting to spend it. I stash it all away where I would have to work harder to get at it....

re: What's the Deal at Pulp and Grind? - hungryone
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? Mas...

[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? How do people find out about your jobs? What benefits do you offer? The labor market evolves, and you've got to evolve with ...

re: Labor Shortage - hungryone
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...

re: Phoenix/Scottsdale for Bachelor Party - hungryone
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]...

[quote] Still too much time? We're pretty active travelers, but, as this is our honey moon, I want to have a lot of relaxing time as well. We definitely want to hike the Path of the Gods, probably take a boat excursion one day (Capri or elsewhere), and then have 2 days to lounge around/get ...

re: What are your three favorite pizzas? - hungryone
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...
