Hot sauces? Steak knives? Wallpaper?

Yesterday, Lori Midson dished the dirt on "Dining thieves: Weird and crazy stuff people steal". And while Cafe Society's readers aren't quite the scofflaws described on seattle.eater, her post still collected a few interesting admissions...as well as this from GFTW:

This is all small beans to what the staff themselves steal! One cook I worked with stole so much from the hotel he could've opened his own restaurant. Seriously.

But we'll give the last word to Dan5280, for this confession:

Any mention of taking pint glasses from Bull & Bush and a mac & cheese skillet from Deluxe would be an admission of guilt, so I didn't actually do that. However, I can honestly say I returned the skillet the next day, and for reasoning blamed the 5 beers they actually served me. LOL

(please don't take my man-card because I said LOL.)

Well, since you asked so nicely...

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
