Re: “You Can Now Go Drink at RDU on Sunday Mornings

What on earth has Sunday school got to do with alcohol?

Re: “Thinking of Going to the Reopened CafĂ© Helios in Raleigh? About That...

I was exited to have a coffee shop I could walk to from work, and Helios disappointed the hell out of me. Twice I went in around 4 pm looking for a standard drip coffee, and on both occasions they didn't have any ready. Both times the barista blamed the previous shift for not making a pot, as if I'd want coffee made hours before. I gave in and opted for an Americano. It was overpriced and they burnt the hell out of it. I understand they're going for a cafe-by-day/cocktail lounge-by-night concept (which seems absurd, but whatever) but even with that in mind i think it's reasonable to have the staff prepare a pot of standard drip coffee every hour or so. Failing that, just make the guest an Americano and charge them the standard drip price. I'm half convinced they deliberately cut off the drip coffee after lunch to pressure guests to buy more expensive drinks. Glenwood has enough alcohol. Focus on the coffee, and I'd probably stop there every night.

This article was pretty intense, but the arguments were valid. While I'm sure it stings, the staff and management could improve things quite a bit by taking some of the authors points to heart. If they don't, they'll likely fail and they'll deserve it when they do.
