Burger and Wine: A Meal with a $5000 Tag

A restaurant on Las Vegas Strip is selling a meal with burger and wine for $5000. I am sure the burger and wine are exceptionally good. The bottle is the 1995 Château Pétrus Vintage Merlot, which is considered one of the finest Merlots ever produced. The retail price for the same bottle at Google is around $2500. My questions are:
  • What do you think of idea of pairing a burger with such a high quality Merlot?
  • How much tip is appropriate for this meal? I will not expect a lot of interactions and service for a meal with burger and a bottle of wine, but will you tip $1000 (20%), $750 (15%), or other amount?

  4. Honestly a great burger and a superb red wine sound like the perfect duo. The economic class that can afford a $5000 meal will be able to throw a 20% - 15% tip depending on the service. $1000 dollars may seem a bit absurd for a tip for a burger and red wine but the service in places that are high class have beyond impeccable service. I feel as though a 15% tip would be beyond sufficient. If the same vintage Merlot is on Google for $2500 that means the burger is worth $2500. I cannot imagine a burger being worth over $2000 dollars. Then again, mark up prices at restaurants are triple or more. Overall this burger and wine duo worth $5000 is a bit of a stretch but it is good to have these rare things available.

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

The 7 Ps marketing mix of home-sharing services: Insights from over one million Airbnb reviews

The 7 Ps marketing mix framework is a widely used managerial tool that helps businesses identify the principal components of a service product. The 7 P elements include Product, Promotion, Price, Place, Participant, Physical Evidence, and Process.   The 7 Ps framework can assist marketers in making decisions regarding segmentation, positioning, and differentiation. Even for the same type of products with different brands, marketers can still drive higher sales through the improvement of a product’s marketing mix.     The empirical study about 7 Ps of home-sharing services   Building upon the 7 Ps marketing mix framework, I led a research team in a big-data, supervised machine learning analysis of over 1.14 million English reviews of 37,092 Airbnb listings in San Francisco (SFO) and New York City (NYC). We aimed to discover new meaningful business intelligence through the analysis of an immense quantity of online review information that is created by consumers in the cyber marketplace

Can leisure and work-from-home demand stimulate extended-stay hotel growth beyond COVID-19?

The lodging industry is   struggling   to fill the empty rooms in 2020. For months, U.S. hotels are running at an occupancy of 50% or lower.     Not every segment   suffers the same impact from the pandemic, however. Demand for   home-sharing  facilities had already bounced back over the summer. Airbnb reported a higher booking than last year. Marriott’s home-sharing arm is also doing well, seeing a sevenfold increase in booking over last summer.     Similar to what a residential rental or home-sharing facility   offers , guestrooms in extended-stay hotels also feature a full-size kitchen or a kitchenette. Extended-stay hotels are designed for travelers who want to stay at a “home” when away from home.
