Re: “One server's argument for instituting a 20 percent service charge

No way. I'd leave the service industry. As a bartender, I make WAAAAAAAAAAY more than 20%.
"Great service (and the hotties) will likely still receive a little extra..." Have you ever worked in a place where you can auto-grat tables of 6 or more? How often did you get left more, after they saw gratuity was already added? Rarely. I certainly would not stick around, putting up with the same issues in F&B, for 20-30%. Not a chance!

Re: “How to defeat the Post and Courier's paywall

We knew Chris Haire was a liar, spineless coward, and unethical editor, why not a thief too? Fitting!

Re: “A musician's case against the $5 cover charge

I'm torn with this, as a musician playing originals. It really does depend on the show. However, at least in Charleston, SC, it's difficult enough to get people to pay $5 for a show on a Friday or Saturday. Different story in larger markets. I think there are more factors to this too. This may work if you are a band that plays once every 2-6 months. Not going to work for a band that plays every 1-2 weeks. If people feel that they are going out to an event, that they can't witness again next week, they may be inclined to fork over that cover. Also, playing on smaller bills could help. One opener, one headliner. Instead of a stacked bill of 3-5 bands. And I don't think this is something across the board. When you can start pulling those 200-300 number from your band alone, then yes, by all means, charge the $10 cover. It's about putting in the work, gaining a following and delivering a show stopping performance. But if you are gathering 10-50 people per show, I don't see this happening in Charleston.
