Good post, very informative. A CDL-DUI can wreak havoc on someone’s life by putting them out of work for at least a year, which could possibly lead to extreme financial stress. Even when they get their license back they may have trouble getting their job back/finding another job in an age of background checks.

I would like to see some more fish or creative salads for lunch since the lunch and dinner meals are the same, for the most part. Overall, a very good service.
