Andrew P. Haley Agenda Recommended

When: Sat., Jan. 7 2012

A service economy, in which employees' livelihoods rely on tipping, is imperfect: anybody who's waited tables will tell you that customers are fickle, nasty motherfuckers. Is there another way? In a lecture titled "Grudge-stained Middle-class Tip," Andrew P. Haley, a historian from the University of Southern Mississippi, discusses an early-20th-century movement to abolish the practice, which activists thought was "evil." They worried that the rich would buy their way to better service. To reserve tickets, call 847-432-8255 or e-mail chicago.foodways.roundtable@gmail.com. —Sam Worley
