Good Week Bad Week: 21/05/10

Our regular catch-up of what has brought a burst of sunshine - or a mantle of storm clouds - to the catering and hospitality world this week.

**GOOD WEEK

Keeping the kidshappy*
Disney World plans Art of Animation resort with 2,000 suites and rooms based on kids' favourites
Finding Nemo, Cars and The Little Mermaid*.

McDonald's
The fast food chain is seen as the healthy alternative after pub burger meals are revealed to contain more fat than 12 McDonald's hamburgers.

Green fingers
Brighton restaurant Terre a Terre puts gardeners' nightmare Japanese knotweed on the menu.

Grim historians
The Blind Beggar pub in Whitechapel, where Ronnie Kray murdered fellow East End gangster George Cornell, is sold for £1.26m.

BAD WEEK

Making complaints

A US pizza waitress loses her job after she used Facebook to blast the $5 (£3.45) tip left by a "cheap" couple who sat at their table for three hours.

Zealous housekeeping
Guests at the Puntacana Resort in the Dominican Republic are greeted with an unusual floater in the loo: a handful of fresh flowers.

Thirsty art fans
A Tate Modern art installation of a mock-up pub comes complete with all the atmosphere of a British boozer, but without any drink.

Crowd control
Devon pub the Talbot Inn loses its licence after a drunken man was taped to a chair and left in the street by other customers.
