Tipping Ban?

Restaurant

Danny Meyer may be on to something fair, just and equitable. He is eliminating the tipping pain for all of US.

This mathematics and popularity ritual is apparently discomforting to more than just the customer. Did you know that the chef, who is cooking your meal in the hot kitchen is not benefiting from the gratuity you leave on the table.

CITY IMAGES visited one of the world's most famous cooking schools and spoke with students, who are $40K in tuition debt, or more before earning their degree, just to slave inside a kitchen for low wages to please our pallet.

HOT? Get Yourself A Free Drink

Restaurant

Today is Monday, July 11, therefore it is Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven. To commemorate their 84th birthday, the convenience store chain has announced plans to give away millions of free Slurpees to hot, thirsty people at thousands of USA locations in an event officially known as 7-Eleven Day.

One might think that giving away so many free Slurpees would put a dent in 7-Eleven's bottom line, but according to the company, they sell enough Slurpees each year to fill 12 Olympic-sized swimming pools. It sounds like they can afford it.

Men Eat For Women

Restaurant

Most guys cram way more food in their mouths while dining with women than by themselves or with other men, according to a new study from Cornell University.

Sexual selection has been commonly considered by evolutionary psychologists interested in eating disorders among women; however, comparable attention has not been paid to problematic eating by men.

The Beef with Red Meat.

Restaurant

A study linking red meat and mortality lit up the media in more ways than one. Hundreds of media outlets carried reports about the study. Headline writers had a field day, with entries like “Red meat death study,” “Will red meat kill you?” and “Singing the blues about red meat.”

Xian Food

Restaurant

My wife was born in Shanghai and has taken me to some of the best restaurants in that region of China. Her best friend is from Xian, so naturally these two gorgeous ladies took me to taste the best Chinese food in NY, according to them and many others.

I can honestly say the food from Xian food is extremely tasty and not oily, or greasy. It was not only delightfully delicious, but the prices were less than what I was expecting.

Foods For Kindneys

Restaurant

If you're concerned about the health of your own kidneys, these 15 super foods for kidney health should be on your grocery-shopping list. When buying fruits and vegetables, get the freshest ones you can find and be sure to include a variety, since some are rich in one nutrient and others are rich in another.
