Apple Watch in the Hospitality Industry

Eater: “When Meyer’s 30-year-old Union Square Cafe reopens in Manhattan next month, every floor manager and sommelier will be wearing an Apple Watch. And when a VIP walks through the front door, someone orders a bottle of wine, a new table is seated, a guest waits too long to order her or his drink, or a menu item runs out, every manager will get an alert via the tiny computer attached to their wrist.”

This is pretty nifty. One thing I notice when I’m moving about, doing something physical, I may miss taps. It’s rare, but it does happen on occasion.

I’ll be keeping an eye on this.


Wanted: Lead Chef

Mukilteo Coffee RoastersMukilteo Coffee Roasters: “A unique opportunity with Mukilteo Coffee’s cafe cabuni’ in the woods as come up. We are looking for an experienced lead chef to join our team in our busy little cafe.”

Mukilteo Coffee is my favorite coffee roaster in the world. This would be a great place for Haileigh, if she was able to move.

Anywho, if you’re a Chef looking for work, this looks like a great opportunity.

How about a Butterbeer

amybites: “If you’ve read the books or seen the movies, you know that butterbeer is a beverage in the Harry Potter universe. There’s been a lot of speculation in the fan community over the years as to what it tastes like, and there’s been lots of recipe experimenting. However, I think that whoever developed the recipe for the park did an amazing job. I couldn’t get enough of the stuff! It was served in two forms: regular, just like soda, or frozen, like a slushie (my favorite)—both topped with a delicious, creamy, frothy, thick foam. The way I can best describe it is like butterscotch cream soda—but better.”

I’ve wondered what a butterbeer taste like for years, now I know. The article goes on to describe a recipe for butterbeer cupcakes. Maybe Haileigh will make some for us?
