Ludwig van Beethoven

December 16, 2019 marks the beginning of the 250th birthday year for Ludwig van Beethoven, one of the most beloved composers and musicians the world has ever seen. His music transcends country borders, languages, cultures, and eras.

Editorial

You should know that this Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at 05:00 p.m., in the New York City Council Chamber, I will be celebrating Taiwanese Heritage Day with more than 200 leaders and members of New York’s Taiwanese community and the community at large.

It is important for you to know that this is not the first time I am hosting an event to celebrate the rich culture and diversity of one of New York’s immigrant communities.

When I was in the New York State Senate, the first thing I did was to organize and sponsor the very first Dominican Heritage Day, Garifuna Heritage Day, Bangladeshi Heritage Day, and Taiwanese Heritage Day in the New York State Senate.

My dear reader, you should know that no other Senator had taken this initiative before I arrived in the Senate Chamber to welcome immigrant communities such as New York’s Dominican, Garifuna, Bangladeshi and Taiwanese communities to address the New York State Senate in their own languages, and to celebrate their cultures.

You should also know that I held these very special events annually.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am truly honored and blessed to have been able to open the Senate chamber doors to welcome these immigrant communities into the halls of government.

As I did last year in the New York City Council Chambers, my fellow Council Members and I look forward to welcoming members of New York’s Taiwanese community again this coming Thursday. The delegation will include Ambassador Lily L. W. Hsu from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York and Mr. Justin Yu, Chair of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of New York to celebrate Taiwan’s culture with me at City Hall.

I am Councilmember Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr. and this is what you should know.

Restaurants are innovating to stay relevant in the face of evolving consumer’s tastes and preferences. Like other industries, the hotel industry has to keep up with the rapid pace of change driven by consumer trends and changing demographics. Gone are the days of haughty waiters, hushed rooms and starched tablecloths. Today’s restaurants are all about casual dining where you are allowed to use your phone to place bets on mobile casino games in UK casinos.

Is Fine Dining Having an Identity Crisis

Fine dining restaurants are usually higher-end and fancier restaurants. As opposed to casual eateries, fine dining provides the highest quality of food and caters to the clients collectively. You need to observe some fine dining etiquette in order to dine in these restaurants.

Trends are now changing and consumers are more adventurous in their food choices than they were a few years ago. 69% of consumers like to visit a restaurant that offers locally produced food items and 79% of them say that restaurant technology increases convenience. In response to this change in consumer trends, restaurants are turning to innovate operating models to grab a greater share of the market.

Once considered as the pioneers in the food industry, the closures of Movida and Marque herald the fine dining crisis in Australia. As more and more consumers are preferring restaurants that offer items grown in an eco-friendly way, the era of fine dining has come to an end.

Ultimate Convenience
