As a rule I attempt to be unbiased in my writings on this blog. When I express a controversial opinion I try to balance it out with a contrasting opinion. The advice I give on serving comes solely from my experience, testing, and observation. Opinions just convolute the message and make it less applicable for the reader.

Instead today I am in a bit of a celebratory mood. Last week, this blog finally broke the 1000 views in a week mark. Maybe not the biggest milestone on the internet, but dang it I am happy about it. Thank you to all of my readers both new and old. I think a little present is in order.
Last night on the way home from a concert, I was listening to The Replacements when “Waitress in the Sky” came on. Suddenly a light bulb went off. To thank all of you who read this blog and have stuck with me through some less than exciting posts, I decided to compile a list of the greatest songs about restaurants. Then I realized that is a very large list of songs and much deliberation is needed to narrow it down to just ten. I decided to refocus the list to a narrower topic: Waitresses.
