Curry's 30-point run ends
"Out there that says rules are made to be broken. Well, records are made to be broken as well. Streaks are made to be surpassed or made to come to an end, and it just so happened. That Steph Curry ran into a formidable defender in Russell Westbrook as the Warriors air wrapping up their road trip on Wednesday in Washington. Steph Curry has to take on for the most part. The battle of the hounding the aggressiveness. Russell Westbrook and you know Russ is tenacious. I mean, The man's relentless He likes to prove a point. He likes a personal challenge. This was a game in which the Warriors were up big early. And then we're up by 11 in the fourth quarter. What got sloppy. And then the shooting went cold in the fourth and so very quickly, the Wizards were able to narrow the gap. They were definitely missed opportunities for the Warriors. But the Wizards were able to take care of. There's real rocking the cradle back and forth. I'll cut stores, right head down right block to the basket Bank and score bacon score because he runs by Russell Westbrook. Hello five as it was to fly high 1 14 1 10 with 55 seconds left. Bradley. Beal had 29 points in this matchup against Curry. Top two scorers in the N B A to start tonight, Curry had just passed. Bradley Beal Washington rallies from 11 down in that final quarter. But even in that last minute after the lay up with Dave John that you hear with Dave Johnson on the Wizard's radio network, even after that, Warriors got a big feel and Andrew Wiggins blew a wide open layup that would have tied the game in the final. I think it was the final 10 seconds I was listening to the game on the war years radio network.

But we'll do a random drawing and give you a free or premium which is worth fifteen hundred bucks which i think is a pretty cool prize and if you're already a premium member will extend you for a year. That sounds like a pretty sweet offer now. So yeah. I think i think that's good. Thank you for bringing that up. Yeah to a hick side to hear what comes out of this. Hopefully people submit their mistakes. The worse the better. yeah. I was must have. Maybe we'll pick the worst mistake as the winner of the premium so subjective. So we'll do it randomly. We can put it to a vote. No we have a lot of fun with this but all right random selection. We'll see what comes in and then and then we can we can we can maybe figure it out from there. But there's a couple that maybe will add an extra prize and have a vote depending on what comes in. So we'll we'll see what happens. Will this is what happened to you.

"We didn't even bother writing contract when we did the online poker thing like with grant all the stuff that we've done if we ever had anything it's been like a one pager or something i even know for. You've ever even signed anything just like we and maybe that's just dumb you. Maybe that's bad business where we're just send ourselves for a major fight or some stupid thing down the road but it also kind of goes towards the type of person that you're dealing with and when you have someone who's like genuinely like always going to work it out amicably on both sides then you know those are like the best relationships and luckily i've been a part of of those just as much as part of the ones where again looking back just like you said dave i mean like the things it of imbed partnerships from me have been the ones we're like i was ready to kill the lawyer or almost ready to walk away just because like the negotiating process was so painful which said what about this and what about that. What about this. And you know it's just like holy crap man leak. Yup yes if if the gravitational force the planet change it starts spinning the other direction. And i don't want to tell you work that out when it happens but yeah i mean i don't want to be the source of that but i could go on for hours and hours about all the different things i've gone into over the years but what you said. There's sums it up perfectly. Yeah i mean again. I i have to rip on this tension two for just a second. When i sold by the negotiation just from the very beginning was a i rating process like they were going back on things that agreed to like verbally. Everyone was in concrete agreement and they going back and little things all right sure no problem i mean it's not a big deal about the fact that you're going back on it. I should have seen it as a huge red flag. In the beginning it turned out to be a mouse overinflate. They're an absolute pain to deal with through the entire process after the process and it should have been a red flag on the very beginning young and conversely the people that color it from me they wrote the asset purchase agreement ad asked him like put together you want. Do you want to put it. He's well we already have one. We use for other deals. I'll shoot over to you. And i have my lawyer rita and she's just like i feel like i have to do something here so i've redlined a couple of minor things but the contract clearly was written from a perspective of. Let's get this deal done. We're not looking to screw over because like in the in the negotiation stage. It's a very common tactic too. You've already agreed. Like on the high level deal points. But we're going to needle you a little bit on all the small stuff and it's kind of like death by a thousand cards and you just never say no to it. And i've been through those types of deals and versus the color at sale which looking at your sale like. they even came back afterwards and like fleas. She for more money and just major life miserable. And i'm like really good friends with the guys up on caller at we talk often we in the even investing amount of their other projects that they the business. They bought after cholera. And like i genuinely liked those guys and like when they call me your message. Stop when i'm doing a help them immediately.

"We just made the brand now. Nothing but that were focusing on just that and so we you know as a company are focused as extremely narrow. The brand message voice is very clear. This is all that we sell. We've gone those products to be really good because we were focusing on nothing but those and so we were making different designs but the underlying fundamentals are all the same We've learned what he words working. Well and which influences we can use and all this different type of stuff. And i think the brand in a good spot for tactical we want back for technical dot com specifically as like we're going to. We got tactical like this endless of things we can read about. We can write about camping and fishing and hiking hunting and all these different things. These are all tactical type things but the reality is just way too big of a net to try a throw and so we learned. Was that the best spot for us to be in was prepping and survival ism. This is just from actually taking the time to do the research and look at what was doing well and so the products that we're going to develop moving forward will be in that niche as well and it's very tight and cohesive since we've done that work. Our traffic is up almost ten acts this year and the brand is as well so i mean when you actually put the effort in like no surprise and keep focused and you get good results when you spend your stuff all over the place it becomes a poop show. Yeah absolutely and that's always the dilemma. Where do you focus and the beginning. You have no idea where to focus. Sometimes i don't know if there's a better solution than to spreading yourself everywhere and seeing where you should focus or if you should have that focus from the beginning.

"The spanish speaking world. There is a lot of spanish only media out there so they're not going to probably kind of levity towards a poorly translated spanish poker website so total failure. It gets even worse than this just to show you like how big an extent like we were off the deep end at least the translation thing. You can least understand why we and did it. We create this other thing called goose grade. That was literally like the same. Exact model is is graham early in the way that happened was like one of the guys i had moved down to costa rica with us. You had a friend that had this idea to create this thing that was like basically that would review and edit your content exactly like family is really literally had created graham early alpha one point zero or something and it was just a huge waste of money like i mean what ends up happening in these situations is like it isn't a part of your core business model. There isn't like a management team in place to lake. Really see it through. Its way too big of a by the apple to chew on and go off and try to to do this thing like even if you are able to develop the which we actually did like how do you then market. And how did you get someone to pay you for it and all this other stuff and we just you know didn't really think it through because there was like yeah that's going to be hundred go out and try and we'll see what happens and again you add up all these different these different things and it was just just huge. Waste the money. Yeah kind of on that note to bring up what my other failures. That wasn't on here but it kind of relates back to staying focused is again back around. I guess six seven years ago when anchoring dot com was doing really well i had this great idea okay well we're ranking for all these anchors because we have the spirit key words specific domain while i'm going to start developing all these keywords specific websites like boat clocks and boat dinghies and covers. And what happens. Is that all of a sudden. We're spending all these time. Developing all these little ancillary sites number one. The search volume was not there to justify it. So yeah maybe even we ranked number one for boat clock. There's like hundred or two hundred searches for boat clock but like you mentioned it was dividing my time and our teams time and so we had all these little micro sites which we're doing that. Well they were taking away our attention from our main website and as a consequence everything suffered because of it and again it comes down to keeping your eye on the ball doing what you're focused on. I can even see us or meese specifically right now doing it again..

"All expanded word of mouth. And i do think that we could have been an early geek squad for sure yeah. Consultancies are always so hard to run. Because they're so labor dependent in a lot of ways they're the exact opposite of ecommerce companies where ecommerce companies aren't simply labor in and money and you know they're much more scalable outside of hiring a lot of people and it's kind of funny that you at some point pivoted from a very labor intensive company to probably the epitome of a non-labor-intensive company. So i wonder if that experience really pushed you towards more scalable business. So you have these regrets about potentially not having been geek squad. Maybe i kind of the direction of where you went for the next twenty years. It definitely took a very long time for me to understand the concept of not treating our my time for money. That was something that probably took. Well more than techy longer. After that to fully understand i think that with the business might have evolved. Who would have been that way. Anyway were you know. I had a large team and someone else was responsible for and managing all of this but the business itself would have certainly been a treated our of time for money unless you could've had like service contracts or other things that may be a powder on or other upsells along the way but you're right. I mean obviously looking at business models. I prefer things ed i to amplify my time. And so if you look at something like e com crew where we put together course material and yes it takes us aid or one hundred hours or whatever are more to put together one of those courses hundreds of people are able to consume them and every time we sell another course. There is an incremental effort that goes into it and very similar sewing ecommerce physical goods. I mean there's a lot of effort that goes into picking a product and developing it. But once it's up and running i mean i don't wanna simplify too much doesn't completely run itself. But it pretty much shrines itself. Yeah absolutely the interesting thing is to that you're citing one of your first. Mistakes is not hiring quickly enough lower on my list. But i'll bring it up now is one of my biggest mistakes was hiring too quick and this was probably about six seven years ago. My ecommerce company. My company was growing really quickly. And i had all these grand visions by private jets and go to the moon in my private space craft and so i took a bunch of overhead and hired two full time employees at fifty k. A year got big overhead in terms of office space and then what happened is all that money got sucked out of being able to reinvest in an inventory and everything and basically came into a big casserole crunch and it's a mistake that i have learned from a lot just the fact that you have to be very careful when you're piling on overhead into an ecommerce company that you're leaving enough money to actually buy the inventory that you're planning to grow into and so that's what happened with me is all. The money was being by overhead. And that was okay. I mean we're still on paper. Profitable but that cash flow is being removed from able to spend that are more orders so growth either stagnated or went down a little bit all the while having this giant overhead. That was one of my biggest mistakes that i've made an understanding that that caught me between overhead and growth and overhead can be really scary for company especially in e commerce company. I'm gonna do mine out of order. Then i think that a good tack onto..

Get on the mike and talk about all the stupid crap you've done but if it helps one person out there avoid one of these mistakes or relate to them or any of those things. I think that it's worth it. I mean hopefully. There's some fun ones who you're too so either entertaining or informative one of the other. So i listed mine in pretty much chronological order. Although some of these have happened over multiple time periods with the first. One's easy. When i was young when i was eighteen years old i just got an ice cream. Did not go to college for those out there listening. I was just always a entrepreneur and kind of work focused person in colleges but never on my mind. It's a long story. My parents never really pushed me to that. I wasn't getting graze. Was already working before i was even out of high school and i started this business. Call discount computer consultants. When i was eighteen years old as soon as i was allowed to go down and get a business license and and start my own business. It actually became what i would say was relatively successful. I was charging twenty dollars an hour to do computer consulting working fifty hours a week i was making mid mid five figures like fifty fifty five k. A year as an eighteen year old kid in the mid nineties there was a lot of money and doing relatively well. And kim time to expand you know to hire some people and this is where things kind of failed in two respects number one. I think i waited too long before i pull the trigger and tried to hire somebody and b. I just didn't know how to hire and so like my business never was able to take off any more than that and eventually ended up. Happening was one of my clients. Hire me fulltime. Which is wasn't a failure. It was a good experience but who knows what the business could've gone. And what would have been. If i could have made some good hires in the beginning you think you could have been the next geek squad. Were the first geeks what i do. I really do actually actually the way that this whole thing started again. This is the mid nineties right. And i had gone down the compusa and applied for a job and they were willing to hire me for like six bucks an hour and i was like i'm not gonna go work for six bucks. I can make more than that do on my own thing and so again. I was charging twenty bucks. An hour had really good reviews. If you will like a lot of my clients were word of mouth like my business..

"And I don't think you can really build any sort of like legitimate like long term business by working four hours a week, and of course, going to respond to this with like the one out wire. But I'm talking mainstream here you know the type of business we have if you own franchises or you know all the different types of services businesses are out. There are just so many different. You think of all the different things you interact with on a daily basis like they don't even have the ability to possibly be a four hour work type job and I think long term just being realistic it just almost like a bad book it's like the teachers, some really bad habits and concepts while at the same time. Teaching some good concepts like you know y you know just working less was I. think is important thing but. I don't know man like I think it's done more harm than good. It's tough to say I mean definitely it's hard to get by on a four hour work week. I think the idea that you can have a really nice business and not be working forty hours a week that overall concept is pretty sound young. That's really revolutionized digital businesses over on that the fact that you can work from anywhere the you can delegate all these house to fortunately or unfortunately lower paying countries. So that whole idea I think is really kind of a loud ecommerce businesses to grow to where we have him because now. said there there's been such a demand for people starting ECOMMERCE businesses that platforms like Amazon and being able to thrive because we're such community of sellers trying to get rich doing a for hour work week. So in some ways, concreted the ecosystem that all playing in driving. So I think the kind of the broad vision of it work less. You don't need to be working forty or eighty hours a week to have a nice business. Are. Sound. also temporaries gets credit for creating the whole idea of V. as probably rightly..

"It'll be my next book after a when I'm reading right now. But as interesting you say that because I couldn't agree more someone who's run. So accompanies at this point and It's interesting because I've I've gone back and forth on this in my mind quite a bit when I was younger like all was like this big company and success to me was measure by top line revenue or the number of employees that you have, which is a huge trapped into and the reason that these numbers become. So important as because there's numbers that are disgust you'll get what a cocktail party say, Hey, I'm a mike from from Tarran it's no will how much revenue do you deal like an employee's do you have like if for whatever reason like this question or these sets of questions are perfectly acceptable and in society I don't quite get it because if you walked up to. Someone else at a party that was like the. My title the IT. Director at a company and they were like Oh. Well, how much do you make? Like an incredibly insulting questionnaires somebody but an entrepreneur countries, your company do and Revenue, which we've talked about quite a bit has nothing to do with the fact of how much make which is ridiculous that this is the question people ask and in candlestick you by and also employs do you have and so my mind subconsciously like I definitely denied out really think this but I definitely looking back at it can definitively say that this was highly important to me to be able to say I have fifty employees. I have one hundred employees whatever whatever the number is makes you feel you'll cocky or important in some way but at the same time was making me miserable because expecially at the time. I wasn't I just wasn't a good manager like period like, I, mean even though I had read these books and I was good at managing a small team management little it operation at the company thought it was really good at that I wasn't doing a very good job of managing my growing my own business and one of the books we'll talk about here in a minute like really help fix that years later. But at the time you know I just wanted to be this this big company that I want to this mindset of like. Well, I just want the lifestyle company. I want a smaller company went back to I wanted a bigger company. And have settled back when I want to be a small company again. But what's interesting now I find myself right this minute is in this unique position because like when I started this, like I wanted to just be kind of like a small company like I don't really. Like I'm not really good at managing people directly and we'll talk about why here in a minute when it gets to the next Brooke but and because of that like knowing that I, just kinda threw in the towel. Ever going to be able to to do like I'm jealous of people that can grow a business into this multibillion. Microsoft that starts or apple that starts know in the garage goes to become a billion dollar company. At one time in my life I, want to go do that. But I just never could get past a certain point in the development of the company. And now because of two people that are like instrumental in my life that have like help get past us this roadblock Alex. Will nine. Three people. In all seriousness it's our COO Jacqueline and the manager of our our team in the Philippines Mia and kind of alludes they're the implementers you know we'll talk about its tractions obviously one of the books list it's not a surprise..

"Was in the Philippines over the weekend and I read the whole book in like basically twenty four hours because it just was that good to me But. It's hard to do though is you said what the business book you know what when you told me about that how you read ready player one in like one day I'm like okay I gotTa go get this book and I downloaded it and I'm looking at it now one I read through like ten percent of it or something I couldn't get. engaged. Told you could. It's interesting. Tried my hardest but I think. The reason it really resonated with me and it's probably because I'm just a little bit older than ill I mean it was really a book for kids of the Eighties. And you just all the songs and the in the video games and the references that they they they make in the book about the eighties I couldn't wait to read. The next one was going to be and also reading the book. It didn't feel like I was reading science fiction if like I was reading like what's about to happen in the next ten years, I can see this being life within the next decade, which was also interesting. The re through interesting. Maybe I'll have to give it another go. Now, what am I at eleven percent actually? So only eighty nine percent more to go. And what's interesting the business books we're GONNA be talking about today is even though maybe they are hard to kind of get through and they're not as surly enjoyable. They're definitely the books that have changed my life the most like I don't know that I've ever read a non business book that's changed my life. Or. Maybe you can group habits and business together but I've never read A. Biography or a fiction book that's changed my life I mean it's changed my wife in a way that it's enrich me and maybe I just really enjoyed it and it was something I love talking about. But some of the business books that I've read have by quite literally changed my life. Yeah absolutely. I mean I think business folks Kinda fallen the personal development category. More business development and personal development Vince kind of all the same definitely more nonfiction books like archies shaped me. You're nothing like a good business book where you learn one specific tactic or self-improvement tactic used to change yourself or your business. Yes. So I mean that's where you know the value that you get out of ninety-five kindle book. Almost always, it exceeds the nine hundred five that you paid for it I mean it's probably one of the best you can make..

Again, it's easier to to get into a routine when it's actually possible and so trying to mess with that. Yeah I mean that's what I'm kind of thankful for with. Pandemics around, but things are kind of opening, and then hopefully they're not closing again here shortly. But I'm Kinda of back to the waking up early routine whereas for probably four or five months I was going to bed at two or three every day we could up at like eight or nine CAS Kayla didn't go to school therefore, I didn't have to wake up early nothing was open that I could go to any ways lives no point to get up early. So let's Get back into this routine of actually waking up early and starting my day sometimes before the sun even up for sure and ironically part of my routine directly ties into today's podcast episode was not plan.

"Well I WANNA thank Marc Nora for coming on this podcast. It's a bit strange to have him on his bod- because he's always been this older brother figure bigger to me and I've always looked up to everything he's ever done and always wanted his validation so I mean we. We sort of wax nostalgic about a lot of things and and cooking is a very hard business and Don't not to talk too much about that. But I have the best moments of my life in food When I worked for other people happen with him so I was really grateful to have them on and to share his story about his journey and the trials and tribulations is that he's gone through. I think he's the most underrated one of the most underrated chefs and bash ass America's produced so go. Check him out and get Bro. It's a really delicious stuff in it's the real thing and everyone else uses garbage or it's like from concentrate or something like that but Marco doesn't ever compromise on ingredients that's just not who years and what he does. and that's why bro gets the best of the best. Took me forty hours to get to Australia. Literally so a bit out of my mind and and while there are some ask David Major Dome Media Dot Com questions both through email and through tunes.

"Every which way to boil or baked potatoes. Yeah remember remember how many different ways you decided on a whim you would come in and Marquez's way spinning a towel is move and they'd be like no. We're going to do it. This swipe your in a slice them and you're going to cook them on a preferential age. You know whatever and this time you're gonNA sliced in half and score on this way it would change so much tweaked and learned every day was great and then I was like I think this guy's out of fucking mind but no I was like. Oh He's like it's about the fucking crystals man you gotta get trust. It's true it's true crystals some homework do some homework. You're like No age the potatoes aging the potatoes. True 'cause under melts starch AIDS AIDS them and man like a good day for you. Everyone was like because I will be in charge of cut in the Nokia. How the potatoes crystals? Because the ruin. If it wasn't good service may go off the rails. It's hilarious sure right like little things and you're so in tune with this fucking dish. Three ingredients at the time and the pickup was just butter bramante yet reggiano and salt and pepper locked up. Yeah and then you got you change the cooking method you started. Aj potatoes and then you got rid of eggs yup and then in total sense. 'cause what you've figured I was like man. I figured out how to drive the potatoes. I figured out how to get the star contact content. The goal is to not use any flower at all. Yeah Yeah can you imagine as little flowers needed but the minimum effective dose of flour. Because if you can theoretically turn the potato into star cheap deep that would be the dream. Yeah right I know this. Yeah so every time I've ever had your Gnocchi I'm like manage closer. He's getting closer instituted. Drink yeah and it's literally the heart warming thing for me to know that this thing potato dish over twenty years it is still tweaking towards perfection. And if that's not three stars or fucking the best one of the best stores you ever hear about who you can't get one star a Michelin at hearth okay. It doesn't matter man. People love that restaurant and I love the people that come there and we have such a good group of people like it's so it's so doesn't matter anymore really doesn't I love that place and people love that place which is the best feeling people come in and they're like God gotTa love this place and like that's it that's everything it's incredibly delicious. Yeah simple wholesome soup. YEA rebel leader fucking Christ but you know the for me like my favorite story is like how you know now. I get off on serving a cup cup of broth because it's like this notion of making it simpler and simpler and simpler. It's like there's something about a cup of hearth broth that that is like it's like the the essential nature of that cup. Br Office something like that is getting me so jazzed. So how does this whole broth thing thing happens. Just like 'cause you obsessed it didn't happen craft. It's my NUKII Cup of Broth. When did happen at heart because you always make stocks? Yeah this hearthrow authors the Universal Broth. I've been using since crafts through through do in San may through heart of what the hearth broth. It's no is the broth. I grew up eating as a kid that literally my mother would make this broth for holidays. And it's a you know it's is a big piece of lake tough beef meat. It's like a Turkey drumstick. And it's like a whole stewing hen or you know it would just be like a big nasty chicken and like those three things together with Mir by tomato product Cooked for Pretty Damn longtime and it would just make the most delicious not super like Wadey but thin at the same time because like Irby's like what's the difference between stock and Broth Blah Blah. It's it's like the Italians make broth with more meat in it and the French make broth with more joints and bones so one. It lends itself to reduction because there's more gelatin and the other lends itself to flavor because they like to eat lighter in Italy and it's like the Italian version of hearth broth with a lot of meat in it is like Sesotho so savory and like to sip it is just. I think it's really enjoyable way more Asian right well this. I brought Tom Yum for you. But even still like it's like more meat and then you use something like you make a salad out of the meat or something like that. You have the BRA. Well Yeah we would always make croquettes out of the of the meat further Growing up Fuck Margaret your sister your unique such good food and I just think about all the shoes to do. It's a lot shit you. We came up with. Yeah Blige's yeah. Final why onions fennel celery and onion instead of Cara so free those words at a wanted to like show you this thing. 'cause I just saw it in my local h mart they have a Goya makes the Frito they used to put it in a can the good but now they put it in Now put Jars no-one free toe like retail dude. My dream is to make so the label on this Goya's of free does the the ingredient panel is like. It's really it's really long and and there's not a lot of great things in there and like I wanna do I WANNA do a clean label so Frito man I would. That would be way down and yeah with broth into Frito. You could make so many delicious. Things you made me do Afrita crude-oil yeah pickled sardines that's one of my favorite dishes. They say that was on the opening menu of craft. It's a free cruiser. Also one of my favorite underrated dishes. Oh you did was the brace Frito yes delicious. Yes also problem. My favorite Margaret Roberto Veins in is the is the catalina beans. Yeah that was the old amuse. Yes but just the beans at some when they were hot. The summit yeah simple delicious sneer. Some good food. I mean. We're still doing that hard to see food. Yeah Yup I mean we've even turned up more at hearth earth with like the quality thing like we're only using grass fed butter today. You can talk about downstairs. Talk about this change in like how it all happen. Yup and there was what the shift was was so someone hasn't been in a while like it's all the same but not the same. Yeah well it Kinda shifted when I split with Paul because it started it was like wow I really have an opportunity now to like do whatever I want. It's not like a it doesn't need to be a joint decision because now I had kind of of all the decision rights and and it was on the heels of Bro and the success of Bronco in the positioning of Bro and and I just thought you know I I really really wanNA speak the same language with hearth and hearth had always cared about seasonality in quality. And that's how you know. Craft was like that but I was never never like forward with it in the narrative or in the marketing of the restaurant and I was like you know because you can use it was a given that. Yeah because that is I never did did like these are my farmers and these are my things I always just. I was always a fan of lake. Not saying anything and just being like you know Yoki would did you ever seen. He's got the best shit. Yes exactly but I never talked about it and I was like wait a minute. Like the more I learned about vow. How few people really using the greenmarket and the more? I learn from listening to cook who had like trail around about like things that were going on in the industry. There's some really great restaurants I was like. You know what I feel like I feel like the world is ready to you know and the other thing that made me do it was is the fact that as I started bro as I started getting interested in grocery I was lake. You could walk the aisles of whole foods and I can learn more about all the food on buying and whole foods than I can in the in the fine dining restaurant culture of New York City and I was like I want to I JUST WANNA be. I WANNA be more out with the kinds of things that I'm buying because I always had the approach of I don't need to say it's a given in like we're just getting good stuff and I was like you know what maybe I do. Need to say it. Because I don't think people were connecting the dots. So you know I started talking about the fact that we're milling our own flour in the basement and I started talking about the fact that we're not using commodities butter like we're getting thank grass-fed local grass fed butter and I just started being way more vocal about The raw material Israel choices and it served us well. I also changed the format right. We weren't app an entree because because like my apps we're going to start popping twenty twenty bucks in my entrees. We're GONNA start popping forty dollars if I stayed to that old model of like protein centric entrees and like you. Couldn't you couldn't do it so I was like you know. We got rid of. The APP entree model. Everything was just a plate of food and we started talking a lot more about about you. I know where we got everything and and it was amazing because I watched the demographic of that restaurant change overnight and it went from it went from blue hairs to twenty. somethings in a matter of two three months and it was extraordinary. And I'm really glad I did it because it's like it's the two two point. Oh version of hearth that began at the ten year mark and that was a fun reunion. Do Those L.. My God you were there for that that's right. You were one of the cooks and Tom was doing his lobsters from raw remember. That could his lobsters Larrea area so great fun night. Simple ass fudd night. I have that menu still somewhere in the restaurant. It was an unbelievable night but it's amazing. After ten years we kind of we redid it all and like we launched the brand new restaurant. I mean it's still hard but it's been great. It's been great. We've been busy and people really appreciate. It was the last time you had you know. My favorite recipe actually is reveal breast We haven't had that on the while. You never know why. Well I won't do it today because I can't find good quality veal it's like I wish Roseville became a thing thing in this country. But it's like it's GonNa take four. I mean four story. Does it once in a while. But it's like you know it all goes to Dan Barbara or something. I don't know it's like I can't get my. I can't can't get my hands on good Roseville like grass-fed Mother's milk veal is impossible to get so I don't do. I don't use veal anymore. And we. Jews are meatballs BALSA beef.
