Look what look walk through. Is it gonna let it. We're going to let them get settled but Yeah but they just announced on twitter today. That horse and dickey's over there Is also an iv city is also shutting down of course in dickie's so the spot right next to that. We always walk past to get two big chief.

Yes so Tom tom had like a major fire around like where he lives in He was around for when it popped off. Yeah interesting experience now. Going to tell the story all over again though shit wanna blaze four minutes here. We talk about some totally four minutes. Okay so what are we at. And i was talking about to miami how how was only supposed to be there for like. I was only supposed to be presented for an hour but i was there for four days. I made the most of it. Pretty much sums leads exactly. I was actually in south. East right off. Collins awesome awesome. Rapper should really right off collins. All right so have no close right. Horses dicky's close. I don't think either of them closed yet. I believe close we. We had a nice little chat about and so that's why oh man it was. Crazy is after our conversation. I went over to songbird right. And the gm who actually closed down big big chief was at songbird right and of course i had to bring up the conversation because you know ruining has got to know what's going on roth going on right. I'm really sad to hear about horse stickies though which actually that it was the dmv follower. So they're more. They got more potent than the news. Time so tmz for like. I would say that's pretty accurate. Matt tally whoa horse on h street. The horse dicky's yeah the holiday going out of business. This is bima being in disbelief. I am i am. I shocked right now. How are they going out of business. That's the from what i heard. So how's that affecting rescind the effects of the creative community because now the spaces that we used employees and evenly spaced that we grew up going to just for like a good meal. Yeah i mean no longer able to hold their weight with the The rising prices. If i remember the definition justification correctly when we did our blankets vacation episodes. It's not only the displacement of people and the displacement of culture but also the displacement of business hardly shing ho man. That's big bro. i'm lucky speeches. But i'm gonna keep talking. Wow all over. it's got to be over. Fifty percent of small businesses aren't able to like last passed. I think four or five years and dicko don't matter man. I mean i know tony's breakfast might be next. No none of them. Let's let's let's not go. Let's speak that into one. Oh man okay. Y'all just like blew. My is kind of blew my mind a little bit horse. Dicky's we'll look man. It is displacement businesses part of the part of the game. It's just really sad. I guess it's just really sad to see in real time that that restaurant that business it's at dickey's towards the dicky's to me represents the best fried fish place in the city and i'm coming from the south. I know you motherfucker. Don't really know nothing about now sticks out that's how you going. You just got here. Why are you shooting shooting for you. So it's just a it's a different to differ. Relationship with food is an unhealthy relationship with food but yet a different relationship food. I can i so coming up here. Being able to find a fried fish joint this a staple
