Perfect Pizza Party to Celebrate Summer

As the end of summer approaches, the number of days left to gather friends and family for one last summertime party is rapidly shrinking. Refreshing drinks, catchy music, great company, and favorite bites to be enjoyed outdoors complete the bash.

While barbecuing is inherently regarded as the classic cuisine at functions for this time of year, pizza parties are another delightfully savory option.

Barbecuing is often a one-person job, with someone manning the grill and others occasionally aiding or coming by to chat. With pizza parties, the environment is more social and a team effort.

An assembly line of sorts is created, with party goers sharing all the prep work: Rolling out the dough, spreading out the sauce, sprinkling on the cheese, decorating the pie with an assortment of toppings, and finally, cooking the pizza. Spreading everything out on a large table and organizing each station allows for a smooth pizza making process. (more…)

Tip Pooling Legal Again for Restaurants

The U.S. Department of Labor has proposed to rescind restrictions on tip pooling by restaurants that pay the full minimum wage to tipped employees.

The Obama administration put restrictions on this practice in 2011. It maintained that tips belong to employees, not restaurant owners, and could not be distributed to other workers or kept by the employer, even if the employer doesn’t take a tip credit and directly pays tipped employees the full minimum wage.

Under the tip-credit provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers can pay tipped employees a reduced hourly wage of $2.13 per hour as long as those employees receive enough tips to bring their hourly rate to at least $7.25, which is the federal minimum wage. The employer must make up for the difference if the employee doesn’t receive enough in tips to reach the minimum wage. read more – http://www.pmq.com/July-2017/Trump-Administration-Wants-to-Make-Tip-Pooling-Legal-Again-for-Restaurants/
