Check etiquette on dates is very specific
"Service people [on dates] split checks evenly and never ask for separate checks. Because that's what assholes do."
“Bartenders always, always have cash on dates, no matter what.”
“It’s tough when you go out and you’re ready to throw down hundreds of dollars on a bill, and then at the end of the night the check is completely comped [leaving only a tip to be paid in cash]. And your date only has a card, and they’re like ‘well, shit.’”
Someone's always willing to kick off the lovin'
"[At] my last two restaurants, NO ONE was hooking up... and I was like, 'We really need to liven this place up.' So then I slept with a line cook."
It's not just servers; the whole restaurant gets down
"The back-of-house consistently hook up with, or start dating, the hostesses [...] I believe it's that way because the back-of-house guys can talk about their ambitions and dreams of owning a restaurant, their culinary vision, etc. College-aged girls eat that stuff up because they want to be around people that already have passion and a life plan."
