Do Cash Out First

I got the chain fixed on my bike, 2 new caballero shirts from Alcala, and 5 new Captain Phil teeshirts. I’m a new man.

I taught a chocolate class to the staff of Xoco Wicker Park. They are currently in the middle of weeks of training before the restaurant opens. Around the room, they had posted their restaurant pet peeves. One of them was, “Robotic.”

I explained how I saw the restaurant business: its exactly like crab fishing in the Bering Sea. Whether you’re hauling in crab or shit out of luck, you have to go through exactly the same motions. It’s hard work: one slip, and you’re dead.

Captain Phil has said, “This ain’t a hamburger stand out here, y’know? This is the real deal and people really die,” while Captain Keith of the Wizard once said, “It only takes one bad wave to ruin your day.”

The best in the game, Captain Sig Hansen of the Northwestern, has said, “Robots are good. Robots don’t think. Robots are used to repetition. Robots don’t complain. Robots are little zombies.”
