Are you posting to her while you are both at Mid-City Bulldog?

No idea but maybe someone can do some detective work to find out.

Hopefully something takes its place. I'm at Finns way too much to not have a decent food option on the premises.

No doubt. Although Wakin Bakin delivers very quickly to Finn's.

Love the food, and there's great talent there...but I'm not surprised in the least.

I actually don't know the answer, but I can have lots of assumptions...one of which being karma.

I'd have to disagree.

Since I was part of starting the business, I always hoped it would succeed, but deep down felt it never would due to poor management among other things. As a new owner of a business (and especially a restaurant/heavy cash business), you have to be there constantly, and he just wasn't. I've known several people who worked there that said the amount of time that he was there was a joke and the condition in which he'd come to work at times was suspect. Every single person that I know that worked there said that most of the employees were stealing from him left and right.

When he first wanted to start the business, no one (including his own family) would loan him money, and my mom gave him a loan. He was supposed to have it paid off 2 years ago, but didn't...knowing she was in retirement, and that him keeping his word was essential to her lifeline. He stopped paying her back 2 months ago.

So again, I'm not surprised, and karma is a bitch.

Anyone else with his creativity and talent could've done amazing things with that business. But a restaurant is definitely one of those things that you can't half ass.

I literally just finished my BooKoo burger, it's top notch.
It's such a shame this place didn't work out, I was pulling for it.

They're my favorite burgers in the city, and I'll miss them for sure.
