Cooking on Christmas
My musings about working in the restaurant industry's relationship with Christmas Day over on Foobooz today
For me, I think it comes down to this: if your Christmas ritual involves staying home, stay home. If your Christmas ritual involves going out, go out. If you do go out, order a ton of food and drinks and to tip your server like a freaking rockstar, like you’re Santa himself and you’re about to bank roll the best belated Christmas ever. And if you’re a restaurant owner, consider long and hard whether or not it’s worth opening and, if you do open, give a sweet-ass holiday bonus to any staff who you require to come in. It won’t give them the holiday back, but it’ll help ensure that Christmas, when and if they do celebrate it, is sweet.
