Reader: Airing dirty laundry, even Old Major's dirty laundry, is unbecoming
LoHi is a hot restaurant neighborhood, and things got really hot yesterday, when Jonathan Greschler, who'd been the general manager of Old Major since long before that restaurant opened at the end of February, learned that he was out. In her post reporting the news, Lori Midson quoted both Greschler and part-owner Juan Padro on the move, and many readers have chimed in with their thoughts on Greschler, Old Major and the post itself.
Was it news?
- General manager Jonathan Greschler fired from Old Major
- Old Major, Justin Brunson's "elevated farmhouse cuisine" restaurant, is now open
- Reader: Old Major and Highland both lose the d-bag contest
Airing your dirty laundry in public is unbecoming of any "professional" in any industry. This overly dramatic post about an average restaurant manager getting fired is the "news?" Give me a break! It is trashy juvenile drama that no one should have to be subjected to but very typical of this blog.Given the amount of attention that's been paid to Old Major -- a decidedly unaverage restaurant -- since long before it opened, we'd say a major personnel shift is news. But what do the rest of you think? Read Lori Midson's original post, and then post your thoughts below -- or just join the Old Major conversation already under way here.
(And for a very classy response on another recent LoHi discussion involving not personnel but d-bag clientele, see the comment from Sean Kenyon of Williams & Graham posted here.)
