Wart... sorry to hear that your boss didn't want to listen. You took the risk of speaking up and did the right thing.

One thing I dont understand is are you also a member of the Lodge? If so you will do better to get some other members who understand your concerns... I wouls also brow bag it to any functions ;) If you are not then I guess its up to the health dept. Anyway it does take courage to stand up and speak when people dont want to hear what you have to say.

Well done Wart!

They just announced a web listing of prosecutions here. Hopefully it will be more useful than the list that is published currently.

I wonder ....

Yesterday was my scheduled boil out of the fryer.

I wonder how long it will take for their deep fryer(s) to look like this again:



Clicking the image will get you a larger version.

This isn't over by a long shot.

Don't feel bad for me. I'm sort of amused.

And how bad should you feel for someone who looses a 'job' where that person is getting paid for 8 to 12 hours but puts an additional 12 + (++?) hours in front work and cleaning?

Feel bad for those people I was cooking and cleaning for because I'm not going near the kitchen again.

My thoughts exactly, babe! Do you have a number of similar pics, Wart? Since they have already fired you, perhaps it's time to consider releasing them to TV news station or the local newspaper. At least people who are eating there will have some idea of what's behind the kitchen door.

You mean something like the crud dug from the dishwasher




Or the hole in the ceiling over the ad hoc wearwasher in feed table that is regularly used for food preparation



Or unshrouded florescent tubes over the main food prep table



?

Nope, got nothing like that.

Or doing a write up on their website.

Well, not their website. I bought the domain name with my own money and pay for the webhost out of my own pocket. I was doing that as a favor too.

Think they would fill their pants if all the work I have done on MY site went away to be replaced with what I have related in these threads?

Like I wrote, once I take a step there is no going back. But how far do I want to go?

OMG, I'm so glad you have all those pics. They really are disgusting and definitely violations of health codes. I applaud you for considering carefully what your next steps should be. I'm not sure I could be as calm and rational in the wake of being fired over trying to make badly needed changes. Since you have already been to the Health Department after discussing the problems with the Frat management, is there any way to see if the Health Inspectors have cited them for violations? I know that here in Texas, restaurant health inspections are public records and violations require a follow-up inspection within a certain amount of time. If they are serious violations and have not been addressed by the second inspection, the Health Department locks the doors until the violations have been corrected. Is that how it is there?
