How to Remove Common Stains from Restaurant Booths

Posted by on 6/22/2018


It’s easy to see why restaurant furniture designers have moved away from upholstering their booths in cloth to upholstering them in vinyl. Modern vinyl fabric, which honestly is barely recognizable as a plastic anymore, duplicates the skin-like plushness of leather while costing restaurateurs much less to own. And since vinyl repels water, most of the spills absorbed by cloth upholstery simply rolls off these seats. However as you’ve probably found out for yourself, vinyl is less than 100% impenetrable to stains. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best cleaning techniques to undo vinyl’s most common blemishes, including solutions for ink, blood, scuffs, gum, rips, rain, the sun, & crumbs.

The Very Big, Very American Pinnacle Grill by Holland

Posted by on 11/9/2016

What do you picture when I mention “American Cuisine”? And I don’t mean clam chowder or gumbo or some other regional dish like that. No — when I say “American Cuisine,” I’m talking about food popular across the entire country, eaten in all nine time zones. I’m not sure about you, but when I picture the food of America, I imagine paper plates topped with hot dogs, cheeseburgers, sausages, barbecue chicken, and maybe a little yellow corn thrown on the side. America is the land of milk and honey, true, but even more than that, we’re the land of sirloin skewers and baby back ribs. America is a nation of grillers.

Wine Glasses 101

Posted by on 12/28/2015


Wine glasses are a topic of moderate controversy among various beverage connoisseurs. One wine drinker may insist that the shape of your wine glass matters a great deal, while another might feel that it doesn’t make a significant difference. Some avid wine enthusiasts would argue – perhaps pedantically – that each type of wine tastes better when served in a very specific type of glass matched to the qualities of the wine in question, but most home budgets can’t afford to keep over two dozen different types of wine glasses at the ready, and that’s not to mention the cabinet space that that would require. However, there are some generally accepted rules about what sorts of glasses to use in most everyday wine situations, and having a few different styles on hand should keep you well covered to properly serve just about any type of wine.
