here's a quick question for all you hospitality industry workers...

why the hell can't restaurants integrate their bar tabs with their dinner tabs. whenever di and i go out on a saturday night and have to wait for a table, we usually saddle up to the bar and order some cocktails. then our table is ready and we always have to settle the bar tab then and there, before going and sitting down for dinner. why don't more restaurants just transfer the bar tab into the dinner tab? with today's restaurant software, it shouldn't be that tough. and yeah, bartenders need to get tipped, but it seems like the dinner tab credit card slip should just include a tip line for the bartender. if i'm elected to high office, this will be one of the first things i do (right after i imprison the wealthy elite and consolidate military power and the secret police through purges).
