My posting has been pretty sporadic this week because I have been on vacation. Â A nice double awaited me upon my return. Â The good news is that lots of brainstorming took place on the flight out and roadtrip back. Â Tomorrow I will cover another controversial topic regarding servers. Â Memorizing orders is something everyone has an opinion on. Â Tomorrow I will give mine and teach you my method of memorization.
In the meantime, there was a great article in the local paper today that I wanted to pass along. Â All of us could stand to learn a little more about wine. Â The problem is that every time you know a wine list forwards and backwards someone comes along and changes it. Â For those without a basic knowledge of wine it can be overwhelming. Â For those like myself who don’t drink, this knowledge can even be difficult to acquire.
No need to worry. Â There is an app for this. Â The KC Star ran a great story today on apps for your phone that can help you with wine. Â I am not an Iphone guy, but I know many servers who are. Â This is a great way to keep this knowledge at your fingertips.
Speaking of newspapers, Western Kansas is not a fun drive. Â Besides the world’s largest prairie dog, the Greyhound Hall of Fame, and the boyhood home of Bob Dole there is not much to see. Â One of my favorite things to do on road trips is to check the headlines in the local papers. Â I feel bad for writers on slow news days. Â On this trip I think Colby, KS managed to capture all the excitement to be found in Western Kansas.
