Kudos to Konatown for this article in the Cooking Thread: http://www.gq.com/food-travel/alan-richman/200901/chicago-michael-carlson-schwa-charlie-trotter I absolutely love to read shit like this. Professional chefs, as a whole, are a fucked up and fascinating people. I'm a little bit of a foodie, but I have never worked in the service industry other than for two years as a barback/bartender at a casino, and the entire lifestyle intrigues me. I'm sure that there are a lot of people who who have worked in that field, however, so this thread is for you: Focus: This was one of my favorite All-Star threads from the old board- Share with us stories of fucked up shit that occurred behind the scenes if you have ever worked in a restaurant/bar. Fucking with customers and their food, crazy managers/head chefs, sleeping with everyone of your coworkers while doing lines of coke off of a cucumber- you get the picture.
