Reader: Yes, Minutes Count at Happy Hour

Minutes count at happy hour, says Gretchen Kurtz. On a recent visit to Bubu Lowry, she found a server willing to stretch happy-hour timing, and that made her time there much happier. But Gabor responds: 

Why should the hospitality be any different than any other industry? It is not a secret it is exactly the same, we have rules that we have to follow.

If a train time is at 6:30pm and you miss it because of traffic, should the train wait one more minute? They do not care about any traffic jam, accident, etc. If the departure time is 6:30pm, it will leave at 6:30pm... 

Yes...one minute is important..

Where will you be going for happy hour tonight? And how far an you stretch that happy hour?
