The Hungry Cowboy

This chapter first sets out the book’s purpose, which is to explore the components, the “building blocks of sociability,” that make up the Hungry Cowboy atmosphere. Sociability describes a place or event that is “marked by or conducive to friendliness or pleasant social relations.” The building blocks that create this feeling include everything from the lighting and layout of the restaurant to the smiles and spicy salsa delivered by the servers. The discussions then turn to ambience, services, people, and customers of the Hungry Cowboy.

Keywords:   Hungry Cowboy restaurant, sociability, social relations
