Abstract:

Business is bad, and Bubba suggests that Frank hire a professional restaurant consultant. The consultant tells Frank that he has too many doors for employees to use in stealing from him, that he should cook with more salt to make his customers thirsty (with Frank protesting that black people have high blood pressure), and that he needs to build up his "night business," giving out advertising flyers in tourist hotels, paying cabdrivers to deliver customers, having a parking valet, serving nothing but fried chicken and ribs, and replacing his office with a bandstand and live entertainment. Frank's new bandstand blocks the entrance to the restrooms. Tiger hates the cost control automation at the bar, remarking that "automation undermines the responsibility of the individual." Frank hires a booking agent who promises Bo Diddley but delivers a folk singing group called the Haystackers. Some of the new customers are wives of old customers who thought their husbands were at work, not sitting at the bar drinking. The Haystackers sing Pick a bale of cotton, and Tom Dooley, and are popular only with a set of tourist parents (even their kids hate them) and one transvestite; Frank's regular customers hate them. The parking valet reports that two of the cars were stolen and one was wrecked.
