    Why did you misquote me and then post some obscure reference?

    I guess without somebody watching him, you have to sue him to get your tips.

    Fortunately, they make sure he cleans his kitchen, otherwise he'd probably put red sauce over two week old Veal Scallopini and cockaroaches.

    I worked for him. This is old news actually. He took tips from me as well. We had this amount we would have to tip out for "wine", which did not go to the sommelier, trust me, they were as confused as anyone. We really never knew where it went. Turns out it was to pay the salaries, which is highly illegal.

    When the dealers at the Wynn sued Steve Wynn and lost, it set a precident that made lawyers here in town too afraid to attempt the same class action lawsuit that you saw in NYC. Shame too, everyone in NYC that signed the list got like 40 grand just for signing, I wouldn't mind sticking it to bad restauranteurs every chance I get, even if there wasn't money involved.

    The Venetian Hotel and Casino already hates him from publicly drugging and whoring when he's in town. Not sure how long this little empire is gonna last.

    Interesting, Bayo.

    It never ceases to amaze me how the penny wise are so pound foolish. I reckon it to like child molesters who were once abused themselves; they rationalize being on the 'power end' because they're still sniveling over their 'slights'. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes the way of Paula Dean over this.

    Heh...first thing I thought when I read this was "good thing he didn't use the 'n' word."

    Looks like Cafe Fiorello is one of the offending joints. I used to love that place when I lived nearby, although it was just called Fiorello's then.

    Is it still good?
    APF doesn't come in screaming at others about how stupid they are. APF doesn't spam NST with the same tired topic 30 times a month. APF doesn't link to some kook in his mom's basement telling you how to, "Be afraid. Be very afraid" of the world falling down around you. And, when APF is proven wrong, he acknowledges he made a mistake and moves on, rather than harping about "sheeple."
