Servers are people too

Recently circumstances forced me to step in and cover one of my server’s shifts. I like to serve. The money can be really good. However, my skills are a little rusty, and while the job of a restaurant server is not the most challenging job out there, it does take

Brighter lights

I have written a lot over the years about how staging good shows is only a fraction of what goes into the operation of a theatrical venue. Some would argue it probably isn’t even the most important. I know of at least a handful of theaters that have staged strong

Music Critics' Picks: Bottlecap Boys, Fitz of Depression, The Cutwinkles, Luke Winslow-King
