Caterers, aka Organized Crime
Thursday, May 17, 2007 at 04:54PM
18% gratuity my ass!  Why don’t the caterers call it what it is, an extortion fee! This in addition to labor being
compensated $25 per person/per hour!

So the good news is we have a caterer, and they are among the best in the Gorge. The bad news is that we are $700 over budget. Suffice to say if I hear one complaint about the food at our wedding, there will be blood on my rental tux.

Of course it is not really a big deal, I guess. Its just that the organizational freak in me just hates going over budget.
