How much do you tip on Fresh Direct deliveries?

Because a pizza is about $15 and my FD orders are at least $300. If I tipped 20% I'd be giving them $60.

I usually tip about $5 on food delivery and $10 on FD.

No, the delivery fee rightfully goes to the company. The drivers aren't independent contractors. They get paid by the company to make deliveries.

Ah yes, I forgot that they brewed Kirin. Sorry for the mistake.

While it would never impact my decision on whether or not to drink a beer, here is the list according to Wikipedia:

Desperate Budweiser add screams "we are cheap beer"

Really? I could have sworn that when I was in France and Greece it just said Bud on the bottle. Also, I got this from Time magazine.

"While there are a exceptions, in much of Europe Budejovicky Budvar—the word Budejovicky is the equivalent of Budweiser, or German for “from Budweis” in the Czech language—has the rights to the name Budweiser, forcing Anheuser-Busch InBev to use the name Bud."

Outside of the UK, (I'm sure there are other exceptions) it's known just as Bud in Europe, not Budweiser.

Geoffrey Zakarian on McDonalds

Geoffrey Zakarian is a hipster? That would probably be the last word I would use to describe him.

Rough news week for Papa Johns

Every once in a while, maybe once a year or so I get in the mood for a Pizza Hut meat lovers pizza. I never order Pizza Hut when I want actual pizza, just like I don't get a Big Mac when I want an actual burger. It's a completely different substance.

Elysian Brewing Is About to Sell its Soul to Anheuser-Busch

The only craft brewery I can think of that I've experienced before and after being taken over by AB/InBev is goose island. I haven't noticed a decline in quality. So I have no issue with small breweries "selling their soul". Especially if this leads to their beers being easier to find.

Now that you mention it, it has been awhile since I've seen it done.

I think it depends on how the link is presented. Just a link seems like a brush off. Simply saying, these links have good info seems welcoming and helpful.

Heinous KFC commercial

The commercial is for fried chicken!! What do you want them to say? If you want to feed your kids crappy grease bombs, pick ours instead of some other fast food chain?

Accused of shoplifting!

You mean you don't like it when a single shopper blocks up an entire aisle? Seriously, those things are awful. I also try to get my shopping done during what would be the time that most people are at work. This way my two kids and my stroller are causing as few problems as possible.

Accused of shoplifting!

I do as I'm usually shopping while pushing a stroller. I have a hook that hangs off the handle and a bag hanging from the hook. I've tried managing the basket and the stroller, it's very cumbersome.

Reluctance to buy online?

Do they actually sell things in stores any more?

Amazon Prime for almost everything, Zappos for shoes and clothes and FreshDirect for groceries. Life is good.

Jewish Cooking not just Kosher

If it's not Kosher cooking you're looking to talk about, then home cooking would be the right board. It would be unwieldy to have boards for every type of cuisine.

If you quoted the entire sentence I think you'd see what it means.

In the near future, we intend to clean up some older threads that have outdated information and may confuse new or longtime users alike.
