Most people have gotten over your serial comma fetish. If there will be confusion, use it. Otherwise, don't. How hard is that?

@3: Many people won't even get in the door if they see a menu that is 18 percent more expensive than comparable restaurants. It's a very competitive business.

The service charge makes perfect sense until momentum swings and tipping becomes the exception, not the rule.

I like to think I would have brought the OP some napkins or paper towels, since I vividly remember my kids puking in public.

But clean it up? That sure ain't happening.

If I'm a restaurant owner and I raise my prices 18 percent -- and my competitors don't -- 90 percent of my customers aren't going to know that tipping is included. It will just look like my place is way overpriced.

I have no problem with the service charge if it's the first step toward getting rid of tipping completely.

Greenpeace generously offered to take Sydney and I [sic] out on their boats...


More accurate: "Greenpeace was ecstatic to find two credulous hacks who would give them all the free publicity they could possibly ask for if they let us tag along."
