Re: “Fresh Bagels in Midtown from Dave's Bagels

He's originally an east coast guy and knows what a proper NY style bagel SHOULD taste like.

Re: “Wimpy's Burgers & Fries Coming to Midtown

LoveBC, aaannnnddd right back to the smart ass comments. You would actually be willing, if I understand your vaunted success stories, to spend what little time off you have, to work in a hot kitchen for $15 bucks an hour.

Re: “Wimpy's Burgers & Fries Coming to Midtown

Farmer guy, chill it, I know there is no way to run a small restaurant paying workers $15.00 bucks an hour. Food service is a starting job. Heck, that is how I got my start many moons ago. I started a minimum wage, and made more money as I got more experience, and college and graduate degrees.

To make up for my previous smart ass comment, I will take the family for a meal at Wimpy's.

I admire people like Mr. Crafton and I hope he can mentor and help develop a new generation of entrepreneurs. I got to be reasonably successful because some of my former bosses have given me good advice over the years.

I've got to add, if fast food restaurants start paying $15,00 per hour, I want a weekend and after hours job flipping burgers.

Memphis bagels taste like biscuits. Hope this rectifies that.

Re: “Cosmic Coconut "Evolving" into City Silo

Glad they're staying open. Disappointed that they're moving in this direction. Expanding the fresh food vegan menu would certainly draw more customers if done well. Instead, they will probably discourage vegans from supporting them.

Re: “Wimpy's Burgers & Fries Coming to Midtown

@lovebc, if he paid above minimum wage and gave raises and increases for quality work would you be happy? Unskilled labor doesn't just deserve $15 an hour unless it's earned. I say start out at a decent wage and if you don't fuck up things and do great work then $15 isn't out of reach. Or $20.

Re: “Wimpy's Burgers & Fries Coming to Midtown

Excellent story, Ms. Ellis. It is good to see someone starting off as a dishwasher and working his way up the food chain in the food chain business. Now, is Mr. Crafton going to pay the workers $15.00 per hour?

Re: “Cosmic Coconut "Evolving" into City Silo

You may be right that the highest number of people are now going vegan. But vegans still make up a teeny tiny percentage of the market.
Offering more options to a wider market is a very good business decision.

Re: “Cosmic Coconut "Evolving" into City Silo

More like devolving into a unholy union of tragedy and murder. Go get your daily serving with death with a friendly smile. "Oh well use grass-fed chicken" well good for you, the chickens get to have a nice life before you murder them. At the start of a new year, as the highest population of people are "going vegan" why devolve into something people are moving away from. Bad business decisions in my opinion. This so called "re-imagination" is more like a nightmare you can't wake up from. Goodbye Coconut, how I will miss you.

Re: “Page-Turner: Bronte Becomes Booksellers Bistro

That was a few years ago, Darron. Whenever I go now, it's always individually prepared, and tailored to that day. It's perfect to go shopping for a book, then stop in and read while having a little something. Great place for friends to meet too.

Re: “Page-Turner: Bronte Becomes Booksellers Bistro

Being a former employee, I know for a fact that everything is cooked to perfection and is home made. They have a wonderful chief by the name of "MRS. ULAUA" and she has been with the company for quite some years now. Believe me , the food are home made!...Even the general manager Debbie cooks as well!

Perfect excuse for a ride. Gonna have to go buy some...
However, I'm betting he uses persimmons, not autocorrect permissions.
