The survival of Friday Night Music at New World

Everyone needs to know NWHC is doing a thorough analysis of our Friday Night Music program.
It is currently a loss leader, and has been for the last 3 years with rare exceptions.
We hear your support verbally, see the crowds every Friday-- but the revenue is not supporting the bands.
There is not enough drinking, and we charge no cover.
Also, Bands are asking $75-$100 per player--which is very reasonable considering what the provide.
So, Do you want it ?
Since we understand the issues with DWI and don't expect everyone to drink more than a drink or maybe two anymore would a straight cover or minimum work for you?
Get us your feed back. We are booked through the end of the summer. Before we go into fall, I would like to know if we can continue our program.

Will you pay a $8 cover or a $15 minimum?
That is what it takes. We expect about 30-50 will pay each Friday. Do the math.
Is it worth it to you to have NW to provide a place to dance for you?
Now is the time--fill our inbox.

Being a chef is about your cooking, (as well as a million administrative tasks)
Being a decent chef is about cooking very good things.
Being a good chef is having the understanding to cook within your personalty and style, to make your menu reflect your own vision of what is good to you, and to share it with ease. That is hard. It takes confidence and humility.
Backstory:

Will he become the Norma Desmond of the NBA...?

When James was asked what it will take to win a championship, he used the word "I" eight times in his response.

In the condensed version, James said: "I got close. Won two more games than I did in '07. And hopefully next time I get here, I'll win two more games than I did in '11."
