My wife and I watched some "Restaurant Impossible" (it's like bar rescue but for restaurants) at the hotel the other night and a typical story was like this:
A person has owned a restaurant for several years; this person does not cook, but they pay someone to do the cooking. The food is mediocre and basic, the restaurant is unpopular, and thus the person is losing money.
I do not understand why these people need help. They are just landlords with embroidered jackets
@alex surprise, small business owners are egotistical insane people
@applebaps this one subject had a strip-mall breakfast place called "The Incredible Cafe" and it was her "life's work" but she literally did zero cooking and served packet hollandaise and canned hash browns
bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future. Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.” Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas, pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.
For now, membership in bigshoulders.city is subject to approval. if you don’t have an invite or referral, email our admin with a Toot-length intro.
