Re: What gig are you going to?

So ridiculous. My tickets were $55 each for Madison Square Garden. Plus Ticketmaster's fee which is now $16.50 a ticket.

Re: Accountant Recommendations

I've been using Pete for several years now. He can take on new business. He didn't for awhile but he has an assistant that helps him out now. Her name's Kate. I highly recommend him!

Re: Is a Costco membership worth it?

I shop there every few weeks. I scratched my glasses and a year later they replaced the lenses free of charge. They have great bargains but you do need to know your prices. I would never buy their...

Re: Intern Salaries

A friend of mine is one of the head gaming developers at Zynga. He did confirm that they pay the interns very well but they do put in an immense amount of hours.

Re: Beer and Travels!

Wherever I have worked a pint is 16 oz and an imperial pint is 20 oz. If the server doesn't know the size of the draft where they work then they shouldn't be working there.

Re: Beer and Travels!

How could a bartender not know what a pint is? Asking for half a lager is not a term used in the US so I could see how there was a misunderstanding there.
