The Buffet Expos'e

Written by Plainy

We live in a world where innovation is an upward sloping curve. Year after year, things become more advanced, and certain innovations simply change life as we know it. The telephone did it. The computer did it. And right now, we see the 3D printer, Google Glass and self driving cars on the brink of changing our world once again.

But innovations don't always necessarily have to be advanced pieces of technology. Sometimes the most powerful creation of change can be a simple idea. Those are usually controversial. Change the way we live, not using the word how, but [/b]why.[/b] Sometimes they can be great successes. Sometimes they can lead to conflicts. Democracy. Communism. Ideas at a clash. A war lasting nearly half a century can result from such a clash.

For people on opposing sides, it can be really hard to understand the other view. Quite simply to them, their own view just makes sense, while the others don't. Ignorance and hatred can brew such as your body sweat on a humid day. But it doesn't have to. We have to learn to keep open minds, think not with passion, but with intellect. Use our brains, not our hearts.



Buffets are a form of dining in which food is arranged in large portions and the diners serve themselves. Sound an eating format has been around since the 16th century. Documented at least. Historians often debate on it's origin, but that doesn't really matter. What does matter is the idea brought on in 1956.

Herb Macdonald, a Las Vegas publicist introduced the idea of an all you can eat buffet. A risky proposition well ahead of it's time. Such a large assortment and quantity of food is difficult to produce in itself; there is also simply no telling how the public would react. Would the supposed high cost deter them? Would it be so popular that the food consumed with quickly overwhelm supply?

As with other brilliant Mcdonald's, Herb took the risk.

The eighth wonder of the world, the one true art form this androgynous harlot of cities has delivered herself of...

They are, laid out with reverent artistry: hors d'oeuvres, relish, salads, and sauces; crab, herring oyster, sturgeon, octopus, and salmon; turkey, ham, roast beef, casseroles, fondues, and curries; cheeses, fruits and pastries. How many times you go through the line is a private matter between you and your capacity, and then between your capacity and the chef's evil eye.



The idea proved to be a massive success. All you can eat buffets became a staple in every casino in the most wealthy desert Strip in America. The idea revolutionized dining. The food was already there, but the way it was presented to the consumer, the ease of being able to get it yourself and the limitless supply provided a fresh outlook to the game.



But what happened?


An idea on verge of taking the world by storm. Las Vegas was already claimed victim. But instead of a storm sweeping America and the rest of the world, we received a small drizzle. Buffets are common. If we drive 100 miles in one direction, we're bound to find one. But they're still being dominated by the inferior standard restaurant.

Shocking news, buffets are estimated to account for less than 10%, of all restaurant types. How can that be?

It simply doesn't make sense.


Don't get me wrong. I see some benefits to the traditional restaurant. Perhaps there are more beverage options. Perhaps the food is more traditionally prepared in plate by plate quantities, and as a result the quality is better.

However that may be, it would be an absolute injustice to ignore all the benefits of the buffet. Think about it. You go into the buffet. You get a table, tell the waiter/waitress your preferred drink. And that's it. You're off. Right there, a large assortment of food is yours for the taking. Every type of food is an option for your mouth. And there is no one to stop you by yourself.


A question that I've been asked recently was, "What are your five favorite words?"


I thought about it. I guess on my list, I would have:

Money
Freedom
Perfection
Freckles

And last but not least. You guessed it. Buffet


Some things in life just mean more than what they actually mean. What is a buffet? It's a form of dining. But it's also so much more. A buffet represents your money being spent in a fine and productive way. It represents freedom, you're free to eat at your heart's desire. Buffets are honest in that nothing is perfect, but they strive for it. Let's face it. A perfect buffet is impossible. Some buffets have lame soups. Some have the cheaper alternative of ice cream known as soft serve. Some have garbage waiters that lets your plates pile up before they take them. But lets face it. Nothing in life is perfect. And the buffet is a brutally but respectable honest way to face that fact.

Freckles are just hella cool along with buffets.



It's just not right that buffets aren't more popular. Regular restaurants are great, I love going out and having a nice time with some homies there. But it's time to face the music. Buffets are just simply better. They're an innovation and revolution to the eating industry. We need to make sure it reaches its full potential.



Next time you eat out, eat at a buffet. Do what's right.
