if my crew comes in at 7 a.m., long before the doors open, 
and cook and clean through 7 or 8 at night with breaks in 
between for their sanity, i am not going to ask them to 
pay.  that's for a big yuletide event.

if my crew is three other people and me doing a feast for 
100, and being there long before everyone does, well, i 
still feel the same.

fortunately, we have good turnout at our events, and 
budgets can be made without taking the cooking crew into 
consideration as paying customers.
