True Christian Hospitality with Karen Ehman
"Me. I've always just a pastor's wife so you know you would think with the resume that hospitality should just come easy. And i had a mother who was amazing at hospitality even though she worked fulltime job My memories are so full of our house. You know not only having people over for dinner but literally. My parents opening their homes for people who needed a place to live for a while. We used to call it gustafsen home for wayward boys and girls. I love that and there was just this open armed like we knew if someone needed a place to say even today even though my parents are much older i know that if someone really needs somewhere to stay that my parents have an extra room and would be happy to have them and so that spin just a part of their life which i would just imagine. You should have become part of my dna. But it doesn't come as easy to think that this that hospitality in that open armed approach to life. Is that a a personality type or a spiritual gift or something that we all need to cultivate. Why definitely think certain personalities tend to have an easier. Go of it. I definitely think it is a spiritual gift however not off the hook if we don't have the personality or we don't have the spiritual gift of hospitality because you know in the bible. We are told to practice hospitality. And when you look into the greek rendering of the word it's written as a command. It's not a suggestion. It's not a a sentence that best translated now. If you decide to offer has to do it this way you know. We are all told the practice hospitality and so. I don't think that it's something that we're exempt from. However i think if we can learn to have the right perspective about it it can be something that all of us can do. Because what's happened. Joanna is that the world has tainted what we think of hospitality. We look at what. The world says entertaining. Is you know which is having people to impress them with your fancy stuff in your gourmet food big house and all of those things we see on. Hgtv and i'm not knocking hdtv right. I love watching it. I'll ride but we need to learn to use those decorating websites those fixer upper shows. And all that as a resource rather than try to mimic them the lifestyle. And think that if we don't have gourmet food and a lovely redecorated house than we can't practice hospitality entertaining. What the world entertaining puts the emphasis on you in impressing others. Hospitality puts the emphasis on your guests and seeks to refresh them. Not impress them when they are in your home. It's it's about them not about you. Say about your stuff about your your food about your home. It's about them and how they feel when when there with you and the person who i reached out to me with welcome with my pastor's wife and they lived in a very old church parsonage that hadn't been redecorated in years. She used to feed me. Warmed up creamed chipped beef over day old bread. That had been into toast because that's what her family was having their eating leftovers that night. But you know what it tasted like. A gourmet feast when i was with her. Because i really didn't care about the food. I really didn't care about the house. I cared about how i felt. And i wish i could quote properly who i. I heard say that you know people will never forget how you made them feel. And that's what has battalions. It's making them feel wanted and welcomed and really listening to them as they speak. It doesn't matter it doesn't it doesn't have anything to do with your home your

I'm telling you for the first time, and John, by the way, is executive director of No Columbus dot or it's the year We have talked about this for years. This is our year, We finally all got together and I know you played a big part in that, John and I thank you for that, my friend. We could be in a lot of leadership from guys like Joe making sure that you're keeping the message going and Making sure time Americans or where, how much we're together on these issues. You were great. Until when I'm on the air and I'm talking about and I and I read the spots, you know, and we have a big shout out to Frank Evo. PR great sales guy happens to be Italian, John. I'm just saying, but he gave most of his team is severely good. Tulip is give Debbie do Hey, She's the English gal in the middle of it up, But listen, we appreciate Well, you know, one of me forget to the testosterone man. But, John, I love that you step you stepped up and you bought in the Columbus citizens about Asia. The Italian sons and daughters of America. National Italian American about knee off and the order sons and daughters of Italy in America. You Niko, do you know Because I always say, Johnny Correct, Weaver, and you're a young kid. Man, you really are and all I know the time there was fight with each other. You don't get offended because they said one thing that this was a great eso. So thank you for that. Tell us about no Columbus that or God bless you for doing this, John, give us a breakdown of how you got this started. You know me, Joe, So I must have some childhood promise of my brain that makes you want to work with all Italians all time. This is amazing Initiative because you know, I spent six years in D C with the National Italian American Foundation of this sort of became a professional Italian American. This is what I do, and about a year ago, I was approached by three or four of these six groups. They basically said this Columbus issue is not fair. It needs riel exposure needs troops and the sixth largest groups in the community have put money together. They've all created a structure where you know no ego involved shared leadership of top total hierarchy free and they asked me if I would consider being the Kind of acting executive director, which I couldn't say no to that many Italian guys because I know them so well and they're all my friends. Of course. Yes, and I thought our mutual friend, my business partner had a boil on with me and big scene, but we felt that he's really the Italian Wikipedia so Yeah, we came onto this. And it was all about the fact that this issue is so much abused in popular media that even though it's not really an Italian American holiday at its root We as a community most closely associated had to say enough is enough to do something. You know how you know? And then Chazz Palminteri, my dear friend, you know, he narrated that great documentary that they great documentary explaining Columbus. Why can't we are? Maybe you're working on it? Because you're always a step ahead of everybody in a great way. We appreciate them. Does this go into schools Because You know the whole Howard's in philosophy. The whole Communist socialist of Let's ruin everything from Western civilization is really locked into the educational process of every public school. Is there any way to get what you have been fighting for? Certainly this last year and really telling the truth about Columbus inside schools, at least That's that's why I love you, Joe. That's what I've been working all morning. I have been thinking about coming on here because you're so right. I was reading notes on education moving this Maxwell kind face was said the Revolution is not gonna happen with guns can happen year over years we take over the schools. And we moved them towards egalitarianism marches on that it's it's 100, plus year old strategy to just completely gut people self confidence in democracy, capitalism and investor in thinking And you know, when we made this foundation that was the first kind of question was that we would create. Curriculums and workbooks and Matt and I said, because I had done it for so many years fighting this fight alongside you about Columbus for years that it's not the first battleground because I remember. I got interviewed for a documentary about seven years ago, and I forgot about it. It came out the guys that are gonna be very pro Columbus and I didn't mean of you. I showed him my collection of antique stuff. And then I saw it a few years ago, and the opening scene is in a class from a third grade classroom and the teacher's teaching these kids about Columbus by having one kids steal the other kid's lunch. And saying, OK, that's Columbus. These teachers don't want to really teach the truth. They didn't. They could care less where the source is come from their teaching ideology there teaching an agenda and were seeking out fact because This guy has been maligned, not because of him himself Person. She was definitely flawed individual, but he was actually one of the greatest celebrants and defenders of indigenous peoples. He's being the line because Western cultures align, and it's just a terrible abuse of one figure and a holiday to push an agenda. It's just interesting and thank you for the fight. We're talking with John Viola John is executive director of No Columbus dot org's k N O. W no columbus dot org's and a great Italian American and he got bad. Trust me. He doesn't need to be doing this. He could be doing so many so many things, but he stays vigilant on his heritage, and we celebrate ethnicity everywhere before we break. It's so true and I, but the people that are out there writing And they're taking down. Not only Columbus is taking a Frederick Douglass and to taking that Abraham Lincoln and this will show you It's just on education. And you know, it's weird because the means I get to say the mainstream media, But it is the bulk of the media doesn't question it, Young. You're like you're out there fighting alone. But I tell you what, you're making great headway this year in particular, John Viola. Really working hard, Joe and you know, the more people we can just bombard with fact the more people we can show that the primary source documents or never referenced the truth about this figure and the truth about the Columbian exchange with not but it's been made out to be since Howard's and we do turn people even if they won't say it. I mean people live less conversations who will Give you all the fact they agree. And then they have, but I still don't think it should be a holiday, right? Well, much agriculture pressure. But that that's not America Americas, Not a country sort of gives in to apathy. We we have to be strong and defend. What's right about our history and in our country, and then you turned down everybody. John, give my love to the family, man. You'd best John Biola. Yeah, the primary source documents. You know what? They don't even check them out. You right in the taran down in writing And on on a false narrative, John? Great. That's so proud to know you, my young friend. You're the best. I know. I love you and give give my love to your mom and your dad and to pad over there and please come back anytime, John. You're so welcome here. I can't wait to see again on the other side of this job.

Judge: Californians can buy foie gras from out of state
"In California's complicated relationship with flog Rob. A federal judge has partially overturned the state's ban on the delicacy, saying the California health code does not prevent it from being brought in from out of state. But don't expect to see the indulgent patty on the menu at your local bistro or go gourmet food shop. L. A based federal judge Steven Wilson said the sale of foie gras doesn't violate the law if the seller is located outside of California, and the product is brought in by 1/3 party delivery service. However, foie gras still can't legally be resold, which means restaurants and stores are prohibited from selling it. That's according to attorneys for both the plaintiffs and the defendants.

Next generation drive-in theaters are here!
"TRIBECA. A company founded by actor Robert Deniro and his producing partner Jane Rosenthal. They are staging a summer July drive in festival, offering new films like Palm Springs, classics like back to the future, and Jerry Maguire and stand up comedy on the big screen. And then the fall Tribeca is bringing NFL game so the drive in as well. Now my screening of Palm Springs started at five PM at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena California. When I asked if that wasn't perhaps a Typo as you need dark skies to be able to project the film under the big screen, I was given a firm. No, we use LCD screens which are viewable from the cars I was told LCD like the TV's. We buy and put in our living rooms now to listen to the audio. They don't put a speaker on your car door like they used to, but instead they. They ask you to tune into a specific portion of the FM radio dial or use a Wifi signal to hear it on your phone. Food came from gourmet food trucks part of the rose. Bowl, which had several screens going at once now it's funny, because just a few years ago, drive ins were absolutely dead, only used for flea markets, and the like on Sundays and occasionally in very rural markets. They might shows movies. So I love their back, and I hope they make it. However I parked too close to the screen and could only see seventy percent of it unless I yanked my car chair back all the way. And the LCD looked bad as good as a TV does in a really bright room in other words, not so hot. The audio was great, but I had to keep the car running for two hours in order to play the FM that and it was a hot night so I need the air conditioning on as well and yes I burn through a bunch of gas, but you know I was glad to get out and I know now to park way in the back next time and to go to a later show when it's dark and most importantly to fill up on gas before arrive. TRIBECA is not the only company working on reviving the drive in there are several others around the country. Be sure to try it out and support them because who knows how long it's going to be before we can go out to the movies again.

Live From The HIBT Summit - Stacy Madison of Stacy's Pita Chips
"Hey everyone so kind of a random question for you. What do you get when you take two? Psychologists one social worker and a few pounds of day-old pita bread. The answer of course is stacy's pita chips. One of the businesses we featured at our high built this summit last fault. Now if you remember a stacey story from the PODCAST. She was a social worker. Who teamed up with her brother David and her then husband. Mark both of whom were psychologists in other words. They knew nothing about the food industry when they built a multi-million dollar snack company and the whole thing began almost by accident. When Stacey and mark ran a sandwich card on the streets of Boston they would take leftover pizza. Cut It up and bake it into these crunchy little triangles. Which at first they gave away for free until it became clear that people were willing to pay for them anyway when Stacy and I sat down live onstage in San Francisco. I asked her what was going through her head at the time. Do you remember thinking? Even once you've kind of moved into making pita chips that this would grow into a massive rand no no no intention. Absolutely none never started. The company with an exit strategy. Didn't know what an exit strategy was. When we started didn't know what a business plan was. What do you think it was? Fueled the growth. I mean was it something that you were doing or do you think in some ways the growth found you because it was sort of a wave right that you started to ride bread and circus in Boston which now his whole foods and there was more interesting sort of simpler. Wholesome natural foods started as a wave and then it. Kinda went to a hockey stick. Yeah so we learned the value of being able to control your growth which is a skill in itself you know because we were doing our own manufacturing and with the growth we got into gourmet food stores and people were paying about six dollars a bag. Has Anybody here have had the pita chips? Antibody has feta chips. Well you know what I used to. I used to ask that when I would go speak somewhere. There'd be like five hands in the audience and I'd start explaining. We'll a pita chip. We take some bread and we season it. We cut it anyway. Glad I don't have to go back that far anymore. But we started in gourmet food stores from there. We were in natural food stores and we always had pure ingredients. We didn't you know the whole natural food boom and we were just automatically natural. I mean there was nothing in it. There were like three or four ingredients so we didn't actually have to do anything when all these other companies were trying to make themselves natural mood like. Hey we already are. There was a point pretty early on because at the beginning mark was cutting the pita chips by hand. Told you had a really big right BICEP. Rice yeah and eventually to just kind of grow. It wasn't like you went out to a bunch of private equity companies. Raise money righty. We were just kind of funding. The business through sale of pita chips through the sale of pita chips and running up our credit cards. Beg Steal Borrow Driving Crappy car or whatever it is. You had to habit. How did you do that? I was talking to some attendees earlier. Same story how do I grow this thing? I don't. I'm also worried that you know? When I put my product out in the world a bigger company will see it and just replicate it in crush me. That could have happened so easily. Pita chips are pretty easy to replicate. You can't patent them right. You can't patent them and they're not that easy. Sorry I'm sorry you can imagine that a delay or when he's like a huge company could figure out you know some kind of competitive product right. How and you didn't have a whole lot of money. So how are you doing that? How how are you investing in? How did you even have a place to make them? Was the rent cheap. I think you were like Lynn Massachusetts or something like that and Randolph. Mass factor is still there but initially we started off borrowing some space from a woman who made pretzels and it was when we started having to install some of our own equipment that we had to then find a bigger space so we found a space in a construction type building super nice landlords and he sectioned off five thousand square feet and then we were growing bigger and he's and he was on the other side and he's like why can just move the ball over and he moved the wallover. We took ten thousand square feet and then he's like well. I can just move out. And then we took twenty thousand square feet and then when we started grow even further. That's when we looked literally one driveway over. Was this mattress factory for sale. And you took alone a bank loan for that yes. We had a bank loan for that and I said well can I get half a million because we have to and they initially said no no not that would equity and then. I went out and got accounts and got letters from airlines. And things like that and you're going to base Yes yeah if you can make them Mike Lee. Write that down and that's how you were able to secure the loan. Yes I mean did you. I mean now. Of course you know. The the lure is to go out and seek capital and to raise money and at that time. Was that even something you would mark considered doing we did. We considered raising capital. It takes a lot of time and effort and I don't have a business background. None of us did you. Were social workers or psychologists anytime. I have to do math. I go to my sister. 'cause she's got an MBA. And I'm like you know so. We were just about to take on financing. Which is when we landed the trader. Joe's account and so we started doing higher volume and such a Nice Company. They would pay before they even got the product and it was unusual. Yeah they pay really quickly and so I ended up all of a sudden we were getting money and we were kind of us and the ships were really selling so we used the money that we got in from trader. Joe's to really fund. The business and help us grow so we never ended up taking on any extra outside money which was a very fortunate decision. Remember the podcast. He says something to me that really resonated you said by the thousands you had your your daughters and you said the business really started to run you. I have talked to so many people who've been on the show that say. If you think you're going to run this business understand. The business is GONNA run. I think Angie Dan Bastion of Boom Shaka. Pop also said version of that. What was that? What was that period? I mean that was when you started to think about. Maybe I don't WanNa do this anymore. Yeah I think at the time I still would have done it but I think mark was like there was all these things that he didn't get to do that he wanted to do. He wanted to go off and you wanted to travel and he wanted to do all these things and yet we're still growing really quickly. And we had been approached by five of the largest food conglomerates that there are in the world asking us to sell and it was a lot it. Was You know I'm breastfeeding in the closet? And it was an so the business really started to dictate our lives versus us doing what we love to do and making a living at it and so that's when we decided well I think maybe we should think about selling. I'm really interested in this idea of passion. Right toll ruffin often. We often hear. Follow your passion which is not actually possible for for many people. Follow your passion. You're passionate may not be able to afford new. Sustainable life were pita chips. Was that a passion. I mean we're you and mark really following that passionate or did it become a passion once you started to really it. It wasn't a pita chips per se. It was just like we were in the food business where we both wanted to be. But I feel like it becomes more of a passion when other people start to believe in you when it transitions from this crazy idea and you guys have graduate degrees and you've got loans and when all of a sudden when it starts selling and other people start believing in you and then you start to develop your team and other people start like wanting to work for you and quitting their jobs and then you're responsible for them making a living and that then it's really becomes a you know. Yeah Ashley I'm interested in. You have a new company that you started. You obviously sold stacy's. You're not involved with the company formerly anymore. You you've got. The new company called be bold energy bars. You've got a juice Bar Nita Massachusetts near to where you live. This is a startup all over. Obviously the stakes are different because you are financially secure. It's not a maker break but of course you want it to work and you want it to be successful. Do you have some of that? Same kind of anxiety and energy you did when you were starting stacy's now with be bold is is there some overlap in that feeling yes. I'm at my juice bar and I'm selling all of these bars. You know the handmade in the back with the mixer once again. It's I didn't start anything big. We got a mixture going in the back and mix press and package and I have to say. It's no less nerve wracking. Starting another company especially now like now people expect something from the pressures on. Yeah the pressure is on and when we reached out to some of the people that worked with us at the PITA chip company and said. Do you want to become a part of the team and we started to get people now our COO. She was with quaker and with Jim Beam and now she called her up and we said well. We're starting this company and to think about it. Take a week. She talked to your husband. Two days later she called us back and she said. I'm in well and when she I mean like that's a real like I keep thinking of real job and she's quitting her real job to come with us and you know and do this nervous about it and not only that. But it's like hey you know what it gave us this other sense this additional sense of confidence and belief that we can do this. We can do this again. And even when my brother came on board? And he's just sitting in the juice bar watching these people buying these bars and buying these bars. He's my number one believer so be bold helbig want do you want it to be. You wanted to be doing what I love to do now again so again. There is no exit strategy. We just want to have a a refrigerated bar. And I almost feel felt remiss just selling it in my local juice bar and having so many people love it and then not putting it out on the market. Because everybody's going to love it. They are called be bold bars. This is Stacey Madison. She is the founder of Stacy's pita chips. Thank you so much for being here. Appreciate it so much. It's been great having

There's no trader Joe's near you will let step back for just a second and I'll tell you the story. It was nineteen sixty seven joke loan than thirty seven years old had built a chain of eighteen convenience stores in California when gigantic seven eleven came along and he realized he couldn't compete according to the New York Times. He had to find something else to do or one day. Colom read that sixty percent of young people who qualified to go to college. Were going thank you? Gi Bill He also read that. Boeing was building a plane. The seven thirty seven. That would give more people the opportunity to travel overseas. He assumed more international travel would make Americans pallets more adventurous. The New York Times reported the idea for trader Joe's store with fresh produce sophisticated flavors and good wine at an affordable price was born. He opened the first one in Pasadena. California that year famously. Colom conceived of Trader Joe's store for the over educated and underpaid historic would serve budding foodies. Who wanted something more than they could get it a typical supermarket but who couldn't pay a fortune for it and something more was what he built. Quirky stores with a South Seas Flare shelves stocked with Exotic Cheeses and gourmet foods from other countries and eventually natural foods and organic produce. He also trained cashiers to be both friendly and authentic a tradition that continues so strongly today that following Coloma's death one woman tweeted name one mental health professional. That could teach me as much about emotional. Intimacy is a trader Joe's cashier the hawaiian-shirted workers often seem so unusually pleasant. That people ask. Why seem so happy? It isn't simply good. Customer Service training that accounts for the smile no Colom also believed in treating employees well today according to the trader. Joe's claims that its workers are among the industry's best compensated employees. They receive annual raises ranging from seven to ten percent. Health Insurance starts on day. One more than one person tweeted that trader. Joe's covered health crises that other companies would likely not such as the woman who claimed that her colleague faced a two million dollar bill for brain cancer treatments but with trader. Joe's health insurance. He paid nothing as the A. P. noted many workers have stayed with trader Joe's for decades in an industry marked by high turnover from Cologne Fox. Good food at affordable. Prices came hundreds of store brand items like Granola in one thousand.

Although today it costs a little more outside. California in Nineteen seventy-nine Colom Sole Trader Joe's to Aldi Nord German grocery chain. Not the same one that owns the Strip down. Budget PRICED AT SUPERMARKETS. Colom remained on a CEO Until Nineteen eighty-eight. The original of the company is still firmly intact today trader. Joe's boasts five hundred stores across the country in two thousand fourteen. The New York Times described the unique chain is equal parts gourmet shop discount warehouse and Tiki Trading Post. The company is hardly without its challenges. It faces a giant rival in whole foods owned by Amazon. All these which is owned by German firm. Audi sued a sort of second cousin to trader. Joe's owner Aldi. Nord is making a big push in America and reportedly beats trader. Joe's on price. Then there are complaints about the downsides of popularity especially given trader Joe's famously small stores in parking lots there are the long lines overcrowding running out a favorite items and too many choices

Devastated right now about retail mortar in general that I'm just begging people go into stores. I know it's it's kinda feel like a weird bummer even as it's been kind of a constant spiral right now. You'll like there's sort of a major shakeout happening. But I think it's going to happen. And then I think we're going to move on. And there's gonna be some positivity. There's going to be a rainbow at the end of but yeah. So. No. Yeah. It's it's a big bummer. But I think if there's anything positive that comes out of the news, it's that it is making people think gosh, number one, I need to think about where I'm shopping and that every time I decide to just click on Amazon impacts local retailer, the other thing, I think the really interesting story to me, the I had a line in my story when we broke the news last week that it's not just Amazon it's a competition of screens. And the fact is. Toys. You still okay, they give them up earlier, and they choose video games. And as a result between makers aren't making as many toys, girl, the kiss this vicious cycle. And that thing that seemed to really resonate. And that I spent a lot of the week talking about especially with other retailers in town. And it's important to remember that we have lots and lots of great little mom and pop toy stores, and I think in some ways they are the ones that are in the better position to to succeed. Krizner your head. Right. And that's so sad about toys. I didn't even think of it that way. Oh, yeah. It's a huge thing. I mean, I thought in my own house from the minute. My little guy got it. I Pat it was like you playing with Legos became it. It's heartbreaking. And it's something that you have to really be conscious of right? The parent or as an educator that play is really important at all the research shows, and there is major developmental. You know, things that happen when you are playing when you're building part of the reason why slime and like all those those wishy. Go dumb, but you know, what all the retailers retelling last week kids like it because they're not getting all of that like hands on action because we're all spending so much time wiping on screens. Right. And they don't feel the goal or the flower. Farting staff or something like that. Right. So this is exciting about j w. Hume? Yes. CW Hume, you know, long time theme, Paul based company, you know, the leather goods maker we had a really kind of storied history where they almost went under. They were brought back to like they were kind of the signature of the heritage movement American-made goods, and then the lose their Saint Paul manufacturing plant on whatever and people were so upset in so bummed. Well, guess what? The new chapter looks really good. They just opened a store on grand rate at Victoria's crossing the old. Garden yet garden to be it's really beautiful. So they're sort of changing their model. The products are not all going to be locally made anymore. This is true. Although they're going to they're gonna make sure that people know every item will you'll be you'll be able to know what it meet in the US wasn't made overseas. All the leather sourced locally, but they're becoming more of a retail brand, and which is absorbing door. They do monogram onsite rate for gifts. They're going to have coffee in the store be cool place when going it it, you know, what I was by there. And I saw everything going in last week. It's gorgeous. Yeah. Deal pink. And the bright yellow leather. I love mode of those things both collections. So good. And they have other products. Two-day brought in like some books and candle. They've got some Fairbault blanket. So they're kinda rounding out the life styling pivot for the brand of this kind of doing almost like an ever lane thing. Wherever lane started by making everything in the and added states, and you get to follow the supply chain of your t-shirts. Or are they kind of doing the same thing with your bag? I don't think they're going to be that literal about it. But I think what they know is they had sort of PR challenge, which is that their whole story was about the products aid in Saint Paul, you know, people who work for the brand for sixty years at sewing machine lady Paul, and they don't have that anymore. And they know that some of their following expect that and there are people who are truly won't buy a bag that isn't made locally or isn't made in the US. And so they want to be respectful of that and make sure that they're transparent. So I get it. That's gotta be tough. Okay. So where did Katy Perry shop before his show yesterday as we need to know? Oh my goodness. Weizman? No, I didn't. But I thought her Instagram story, and I knew right away where she was. And I got a little message from a friend who works at the Whiteman. She went to the Whiteman art museum at the m really Frank Gehry. Oh, I went there, and they have a museum shop, there's noth- no better shopping usually the museum shops. She was literally like in her interim story, which might still be live. You can go look at it. She really like reading a book about animals, you don't see her face. You just hear her reading the story knowing the book, and then she posted pictures around the museum. That's really cool. That is cool. I haven't heard anybody talking about this. I would've been like gushing about tweeting everything I've lied anyway. Because you don't want to do social media. Well, there you go. We have new study on that. It somewhat vary. So much work. We're just gonna stop I know it. So what is the chameleon shops that are popping up and Gavin day? They are literally a new pop up. So I think, you know, downtown Minneapolis recognizes that it has a problem. There aren't very many Paul does to. Every place right now. So you know, they've done holiday pop up. They did the Super Bowl pop up. There's nothing specific to the final four. But it's well-timed this new program called chameleon shop, and it's a bunch of really small brands focus on diversity focus on giving -tunities people that wouldn't normally have them. So they're three different storefronts in Gavin on the skyway level and the first level with all sorts of cool local doctor shop one of my favorites. Maybe I've told you guys about this before it's a brand called the cat lab. It is a woman who has lived all around the world, she's not a designer, but she sources bashing. So she works directly with emerging designers and kind of create your own curates a collection. Fashion you've seen and pretty good prices to. Is at gaven's. There's Ramic there so gourmet foods, which is really fun. And it's just always I just think you know, we we see over the holidays and with these special events people want to shop local downtown. Oh MG. I was done tons Paul. Holy cow. You couldn't find anything. Yeah. Hymie Tabesh rate. That's still there. That's sitting here, but member there. I mean, I'm just think in even uptown I was kinda sad the other day because I was just remembering member slams. I mean. Yeah. Problems been that. Yeah. Members of the shopping that used to be there. Yeah. I mean, I think we are in a real period of transformation. Not everyone's gonna win. Not you know, I think we're going to see ultimately when it all shakes out. I think in ten years from now, we're not gonna have as many malls. We're not gonna have as many regional shopping areas. But we're gonna have the ones that do thrive are going to be really solid. I think targets figured it out because I love going in the new target. I spent more money their cargo winner. I can't be off how good the the new one is with the cool hip areas. And then you just like, oh, I'll get those earrings that scarves, you keep and trendy perfect. Yeah. Because they're focusing on the experience, and they're making it more fun and more visual and more engaging to be there. And that's what everybody has to do if they wanna win these with so much it true. What is this glass year, though? Just tell me why do millennials love glass here? If you're just starting with. Okay. I hope you do you. Shop glassy sprain on Halley cousin. I actually no. But I will tell you Ellison that I am targeted a lot by the brand glossier social media. They tried to get me to buy their stuff all the time. So it's make that brave makeup yet if we can buy shares immediately. They were just anointed the latest unicorn with a one point two billion dollar valuation, really just make up ladies. Yeah. The real trend is that young women are not buying their makeup, a cosmetics counter in a department store that is over, but they're missing out so much on the fun experience of going in and getting a free makeover. I love where do like receiving their baby pink boxes and little pouches with their makeup delivered directly to their home. And then you in vox, you're on your YouTube channel. And then you put it to Ariel on how to ply the makeup to make the true millennial experience. My gosh. Alison, I think you need. I think you need to do this you need to start a beauty. And. Yeah.
