The last time you've been to Frida's seafood restaurant over there in northwest Austin, Pa. Con Park, right, just south of Lake Line Mall. I haven't been there. You know the area, they'll write their 6 21 part is it's not my regular beat, but yeah, On the opposite side of town from you, and I make sense but a lot of construction over there many years ago and get the end of a toll road right there. 6 20 needs is desperately needs help and widening and some attention for sure. Well, the city council you're looking at their agenda Items 27 to 31. They are on a mission to buy Moorhouse hotels to house the homeless. Including one that is adjacent to freed us to the tune of $9.5 million. That $0.5 million And it is probably more than his fourth that that has been their history so far, And if I knew the owners of Frieda's, I would tell them to start selling today. Get out of there before it turns into a disaster. Get out of dodge any business around there? Yeah, that whole areas. I mean, that's that's just amazing. But then again, the city has brought a lot of hotels, and I don't know if we have a whole lot of people that are being housed in these hotels were not getting any updates. And I'm aware of that. That's what the hell's going on with those hotels, and this is just my speculation. That's just my behind the scenes. In two and two together, and maybe somebody listening could help me string this together. But I think the homeless crisis is being used by the City Council to buy up hotels, not for the homeless. Maybe they do for a few just to make it look good, But it's really to buy up these local hotels that are in locations where they want to build these transportation corridors, so they want to, you know, code next. Rewriting of our codes along with property, they go. They all of these things, Things go together, and well, I'm not even sure that hotels worth that kind of money. No, it's probably not.

Where are these things are they already occupied? Because they had to refurbish these things right? They had to make him set up for that kind of situation. They had to do more than just make him you know, set up for a continental breakfast, and that's it. You know, they got it. They have more considerations or infrastructure that they have to have in there. And but we've had no updates on that. Are we seeing any benefit yet from those hotels? I'm seeing it.
