What's a restaurant what restaurant do you miss most. In Boston that that has gone by the wayside. Yeah and I think while some legendary. You wanna say it appears for you know and at the mystery. About your forced about Ian. Yeah you know going there's a kid. In that he was always at the door you know when he was my mentors and now teaching them there. You know. He just don't have restaurant is like yeah I mean I was Michael my life was to mean they are. Charlie's arc as the east great incredible wrestler Kurt was wasn't that they the when he came to revenue the number one restaurant in the country rather well ironically a long period was that point in the Hilltop. And they were they. You know the reason here today in changing America this you know they. You can go so far the toppled Narnia and even though we have a great and I have pop overs because it's kinda liked the almighty field. The old guys yet. Well Anthony's was in the seaport before it was the seaport via IL ER a Z I. He was. You've entered into east it was another restaurant illegals is in and offers those via that was Jimmy's Jimmy was another great place. Great seafood place still alive on fumes and then they have the little that does the belly Jimmy's. Like dollar store place that was it didn't have like another one surgeons was that the one that was the big the big one and and they have a little one and I'm like I don't feel like no name is not the it's still there that don't have that such a calm. Classical podcaster on its own problems such and such a classic we have such a Christian and you know I travel optimal place in time combat the it just means notes LB misses the ground round really. In the hardware peanuts and peanut. An audience yeah beer and thrown your peanuts are currently on the place. A couple of times today yeah anyway we'll stripper an impressive regular ground round Dallas morning light had realized that I thought. Last question how how's the whole. Smoking no blockading reading the whole smoking thing affected. It was the best thing that ever happened in the that's in my. I mean. I'm an anti smoker in 1990. We stopped smoking downstairs its levels and he kept it at the par. We're afraid to take it in the apartment downstairs I stopped in L story in my book about why stuff because I had a cigar when nineties system. I'm jerk that of Edward it was a good idea. You know so smoky it's it's really about the people who work in the business you know we call inner gas is pleased with our people back to work in my opinion and more important. Are as important as people come to the front door. And we were all dying you know we can both died of lung cancer never smoke and who worked in the Smith and he's the wake up and went to our if you're toolbar you wake up the next morning and your clothes smelled like signals grandparents. We'd be in smoking I think forget warrior west of Philadelphia still had in in our restaurants still had smoking at the bar. So I would go fly down there and come back yet veteran who if I have a commitment walking out of that. We Philly today if you go to LI IRL as to how we say yeah I'm gonna get I sort of but just being in the environment. Now way it's that I think it was a it was a real positive now there still people who go outside and and wanna smoke it's great and that's yeah would limited product now looking to see what happens with a marijuana fracture yeah concerned about all that's always work well at this do nothing would increase your business. The validity twice as much away and I got a slight editing I'm gonna I think it may affect alcohol sales. Colorado yeah there's lots are you have gone down cells. Yeah I think I think I think the problem with marijuana are there is smokers. Which I I have no problem legalizing it it's far. I don't think marijuana smokers. Are. In the reality of you go outside. And smoke a joint you come in. And you're you're gonna just read the whole place. We don't and I read that side effects it is smoking marijuana is. This stance is ridiculous. I probably that now though is the doubles yeah it alerts are doing we only know him knowing that in the game and L well. You know much serve once in.
