40 Most Important Restaurants of the Decade

Some people like to argue that decades are nothing more than arbitrary demarcations of time. But if I were to ask you to free-associate, and if I were to say the Fifties, the Sixties, the Seventies, the Eighties, the Nineties, et cetera, certain songs and movie scenes and sartorial flourishes would arise in your mind for each one.

No one would confuse the 1950s with the 1970s, except maybe in the case of Happy Days. No one would confuse the 1970s with the 1990s, except maybe in the case of the Weezer video for “Buddy Holly” in which the band members were inserted into a scene from Happy Days. Decades have signature styles and moments. Some great hand of American culture does seem to hit reset every ten years.

10 Coolest Places to Eat in 2020

I asked a few of of my favorite professional eaters which restaurants they find most interesting—and under-sung—right now. None of their picks is particularly famous, though maybe one will be. No matter. For now, they provide a modicum of bragging rights and a great amount of joy.

KENNEWICK, Wash. – Every year, we celebrate the day we came into this world. Some people have a night out – maybe go to a restaurant.

While many expect the typical “Happy Birthday” rendition, a server at the Kennewick Olive Garden does it a little differently. He belts it

“Just through the years I’ve practiced and practiced and it became a love of mine,” said Alphonso Nichols, an Olive Garden server.

A video posted on a Facebook page called Bitchy Waiter and sent by local mother Amy Haddox, has been viewed nearly 100,000 times. Nichols didn’t expect a response like this.
