Blog Post: “Under Your Nose” (May 2006)


"The bartender and waitstaff never checked on us, never offered us dinner, and never mentioned that the kitchen was closing. Again, we knew they were not serving outside so our expectations were tempered — but the country club restaurant and bar did not appear busy as the evening progressed.

Little did the management the country club know, but friends in our group are considering a membership…At $20,000 + dollars a year (for the membership fee only) how many people are going to consider this a good investment when they've been ignored by the waitstaff? A $100 night of bad service could cost this country club approximately $100,000 in membership fees over the next 5 years."
