This is unfortunate. Thirst and Vine was a great restaurant.

I'm looking forward to seeing what goes in--glad there's already an interested party.

This is what happens when the village provides financial assistance to bring in a direct competitor.

This is what happens when things are GIVEN to people. That is not the free market and NOT good for the future. Ask our favorite lunatic, hand-out taker, Keith. He will tell you.
