Re: “Kinston restaurateur Vivian Howard and A Chef's Life, a new PBS show

I enjoyed your program until you used the EXUSE of a fire to give birth and promote it further. Your second season SUCKS with all the bickering, and you guys just need to get off the air and on with your pathetic lives in N.C. Shame on you!

As a veteran of the restaurant business, I don't see anything here that strikes me as inaccurate.

Noted. Excellent use of your English degree. Now shuffle on back to the kitchen and get my vegan bacon.

Lol of course the author wasn't afraid to speak their mind. Thats what the internet is for. People get really honest when they can be anonymous. But yeah people at brunch can be jerks.

Former waiter to confirm: working brunch sucks. Former dishwasher chiming in: washing dishes for a brunch buffet is like a million times worse.

I'm sure all of the people in fast food service fighting to get paid a living wage feel super-sad that you're not able to make "bags of cash" on late Sunday mornings too.

Re: “Psst … Guess What? Your Brunch Waiter Hates You.

Wow, its rare to find someone who is not afraid to speak their mind like this honestly. If I am dining out, the most important quality for my waiter to is honesty, not a phony attitude. Spicy remoulaude my opinion most people will see this article in a cynical way, but I find this persons courage to tell the truth extremely refreshing. Thank you, sir, a working class hero is something to be. If only the rest of us had the same commitment to being honest with one another, just maybe this world would be a better place for everyone.

Re: “Psst … Guess What? Your Brunch Waiter Hates You.

I'm so glad that you write stories like this! People have no clue how annoying they really are when you are the waiter or waitress! It's not the fact that you hate the job or even the people. It's all about circumstance! Love it!

Where the hell do you work? Just so I know to avoid you at all costs.
I tip the shit out of wait staff but I have a sneaky feeling i'd break my own rules for you.

Re: “Is The Closure of Cave Taureau a Bad Sign for Downtown Durham's Recent Retail Bloom?

These are all great points. David Wofford, I would argue that your assertion about tech culture in Durham, compared to the stereotypes about Silicon Valley that often get used in these discussions, are misguided. Again, full disclosure, our team at RUNAWAY has an office in American Underground, and our shop is in the newly renovated Trust Building. Our new neighbors, Blackspace, just opened up next door after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Both these businesses (owned by minorities) benefitted from the infrastructure of the "tech culture," and now have an opportunity to pay it forward back to the Durham community.

Durham is going to change. That is certain. HOW it changes depends a lot on what happens in the next 5 years, and how we choose to engage with the process.

Using tech culture as a scapegoat for decisions made by city government and developers (many of which don't live here or have roots here) could ultimately hurt Durham long-term. What we need is more discussion and participation around housing, commercial development, alternative transit, retail affordability, small business development, and so forth.

I am happy to have that discussion with anyone that wants to. My name is Justin, and I work at the RUNAWAY store. You're welcome to come find me.
