The Casa Cafe, a restaurant inside the Casablanca Casino share some key similarities with the River Cafe, a restaurant inside the Virgin River Casino. First, they share an equivalent atmosphere and the level of cleanliness between the two are the same. For example, both restaurants do a good job at keeping the tables clean and presentable. Also the Casa Cafe and the River Cafe have a fresh scent; evidently, that helps them present a cleanliness to their customers. Second, both restaurants have good and efficient service.

One critical part in the book is when Mark Spitz is discussing the TGI Friday’s. Mark Spitz recalls the time he spent with his family at the “local franchise” that was also “his family’s place for the impulse visits and birthday celebrations and random celebrations, season upon season” (Whitehead 188-9). The inclusion of this scene shows Mark Spitz, who is a sweeper seemingly acknowledged as middle class, temporarily living in the past. He describes this restaurant as a significant place for him and his family. He also then describes the devastating moment when he realized that his favorite restaurant was a product of consumerism.
According to Parsons, nuclear family is familial form consisting of a father, a mother, and their children (pg. 453). A nuclear family is also considered to be the “traditional family” and this occurred greatly during the 1900’s. The traditional family would be a man and women get married at a young age, have children, the father goes to work and makes the money, while the wife stays home to raise their children and tent to the house. It was expected that the wife has the house clean and for dinner to be on the table when their husband was home from work, this was the dominant model for people living in the 1950’s.
The day before Thanksgiving I woke up the day before Thanksgiving wondering how we were going to get all the food done. I wanted this Thanksgiving to be the best Thanksgiving our family has ever had. I got up, went upstairs and my Grandpa was already cooking and my grandma was already cleaning, so I decided to just jump right in. At the end of the day, some of the food was already done, and some of it had a lot to go, but we all knew we had tomorrow too. "Tomorrow is going to be a great day" everybody thought.
Martha looked at the myth of Thanksgiving. The idea that an entire family would happily get together for a huge meal. The family will think and talk about everything that they are thankful for. This is heavily discussed in elementary schools. As a child I remember my teacher suggesting that at dinner we should go around the table and have each family member say something that they are thankful for.
A huge impact often follows where just a little of hospitality WAS shown. After noticing that the Thompson family upstairs did not have enough nourishment for their large family, Mrs. Lewis cooked them a hearty meal of delicious homemade food and brought it to their shabby apartment. Mrs. Lewis displayed sincere hospitality and generosity by forfeiting her time and supplies to show unmerited kindness to a family in need. Also, for another example, a young man in high school inhabiting a small apartment with absent father and an alcoholic mother needed a different place to live. Some parents came together and aided him in his expenses for food, and he moved into his good friend's grandma's house, who enjoyed having a young man around to help with household duties.

To many immigrants, America is seen as a place where they could start over with an equal chance of success or failure, no matter what country he or she came from. My informative name is Julio Acevedo. I had Sunday dinner with him and his family. I was not prepared to have dinner, but it is part of their traditions to feed their guest. Plus I did not want to offend anyone by refusing their hospitality.
The environment is friendly and extremely energetic. The appearance of Teas Roadhouse allows customers to feel as if they’re in the wild west. Although Texas Roadhouse, is a higher end restaurant, the wood appearance that makes up the majority of the restaurant gives it a much laid back and casual look.Throughout

A family gathered together at the dinner table. But if we compare the orginal painting from what was meant to be FDR’s vision of freedom from want verses the paradies that are meant to demonstrate current generations, many details come to play. Rockwell’s orginal painting illilstrates a family gathered together for a healthy home cooked meal. The idividuals in the painting are well dressed and well groomed. The man at the head of the table is dressed in a suit as if he just cam home from work.
In high school I participated in a culinary competition called C-CAP (Careers through Culinary Arts Program), Josh was one of the judges my sophomore, junior, and senior year. He donated his time, expertise and also a scholarship for aspiring culinarians. I have had the opportunity to work with Josh at the Taste of America event put on by the James Beard Foundation. Not only did he teach me a ton in that short night, he also offered me a position in his kitchen staff at Posh. Josh Hebert is inspiring to me because he worked in several restaurants and came to the realization that he loved the industry but couldn’t stand the daily grind.
