  1. Secrets to ensuring the next pandemic isn’t so serious:
    1. Keep conservatives from spinning it as a political problem.
    2. Keep conservatives away from the stockpile.
    3. Put leftists in charge of vaccines and masks (distribution in particular).
    4. Improve social programs beforehand, so that when lockdowns and restrictions inevitably happen, fewer people fall through the cracks.
    5. Follow the science, and do whatever you can to make sure that the health system can handle the load.
    6. Make sure that all citizens have equal access to health care.

    1. I am a Democrat and what you said will not work. We need to fire and replace the CDC or simply listen to the W.H.O..
      CDC has left masked mandates up to governors which is political, healthcare is not political.
      CDC keep pushing the vaccines and claiming it protects people against the Delta variant. Not true. It may ease symptoms but you will still get it.
      W.H.O. states to wear you mask in public, even if you are fully vaccinated. Is see people from the left that ignore that.

  2. Why not? We’ve already looked at politicians for answers to a pandemic so of course, why shouldn’t we look at a chef for medical information. Maybe the next time that our infrastructure breaks down, we can actually look at a mechanic that does all of his work on internal combustion engines to find the answer 🙄🙄. Me personally, I’m thinking about asking a surgeon how to put back together an entire gasoline engine 🤣🤣

  3. Love and miss eating at Spago I remember when it opened.
    Those were the days 💃 🍷 🥳

  4. Wolfgang Puck’s advice on the next pandemic is as valuable to me as a Flat Earther’s advice would be to NASA.
    Thanks anyway though, Wolf. 🤷🏼‍♀️

  5. Hey 50% is good. I only seen a chef ever buy all the dinner once in my life to a customer and it was me on my 21st Bday o worked for Italian restaurants for my second job because they closed on holidays and Super Bowl and it’s easy to sell food you love. I love the challenge of tips I can almost get some outrageous tips from people at least a few times a month and that’s so heartwarming.

  6. Preparing for the next pandemic check list. 1. Save money by taking lunch to work. 2. Cook your on meals. 3. Buy what you need not what you want. 4. Make sure you have enough bathroom tissue 🤪 5. Read lots of books. I’m stll working on this list. 😁

    1. Sounds like a pretty unfulfilling existence. But who am I to judge, you are literally explaining what millions of people already have to do every day just to get by. It’s cute that you still think most people are still being paid enough to build their wealth if they follow your recommendations.

  7. I ate a tasting menu at Spago’s for my anniversary one year. Everyone should have ONE DELICIOUS, MEMORABLE MEAL.

  8. Am I wrong to think that these restaurants waste a lot of food ?
    I abhor waste, especially food …… when so many struggle to eat, etc.

  9. Learn to cook, it’s easy. My dinner at home is the best. And I ordered off menu $50 per plate restaurant meals.
