Depends what kind of catering it is.

I worked for a small catering company when I was in college, and an on-site kitchen was often needed for some of their meals. For example, when we served lunch in corporate boardrooms, the food was often high-quality cuts of meat or fish, and would be done properly in an oven or on the stove on site.

Obviously the company also had meal options for places that didn't have a kitchen, and we also sometimes brought our own electric frypans or portable ovens, but places that did have a kitchen had more meal options to choose from,

A side note on the subject:

Quote:
But would anything that Trump posts on Twitter ever actually get him -- or one of his tweets -- removed from the site? Dorsey dodged the question in a Thursday interview with HuffPost, refusing to even clarify whether a call to murder journalists would hypothetically get Trump kicked off the platform....

The border rancher (is that like a cattle rancher?) is not lying. The claim is, in fact, unreal.

Yeah, just a rancher who's property lies on the border. Could be a cattle rancher, could just be some guy who owns a lot of land and calls it a "ranch".

Implicitly threatening Cohen's family should be beyond the pale for Trump's Congressional enablers, but of course, isn't.

Each of them should be asked about this, repeatedly. Let them go on the record saying it doesn't merit any response by Congress.

If only we could go back to those halcyon days with red-blooded, red-meated real news like fake presidential birth certificates and tan suits and pizza-based child prostitution rings and Elvis was an alien's love child. Ah, I remember it well.

It's a bigfoot baby, all covered in fur now.

I saw Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper yeeeeeears ago.

What I remember most about the show is that he tried to sing a serious Bruce Springsteen-type song called "Football Friday night," but the audience couldn't believe he was doing it.

How could he have fathered an alien love child if, he himself, was not originally an alien love child? Hmmm? It's alien love children all the way down.
