    I'm thinking next summer to check your place out, by the way. Doing anything next summer? =D

    Depends if I finish school this year. Honestly this whole thing, while potentially lucrative puts me between a rock and a hard place. I really, really don't want to be in boston anymore, but you can't really own a restaurant from across the country.

    It doesn't have to be super long term, you can do it for a couple of years and then sell it.

    That's the plan, honestly. I'm also starting to realize why the other guy bought out to begin with. I don't really want to be a part of some of the more shady business practices I'm becoming privy too.

    We'll have to talk more in depth about this later, the restaurant business is something I'm super interested in but am kind of terrified of because of how notoriously difficult it is to survive in it.

    I've heard the statistic of 90% fail in the first three years thrown around. I have no idea how true it is, but that's the kind of fear that really grabs you by the balls.

    you were a pleasant surprise. I had no idea who you were going in but you turned out to be one of my favorite hangout people

    I seriously think you're probably one of the nicest people I've met ever, so that was pretty great.

    But not the nicest because you also met Nino.

    Seriously. Nino is awesome.

    Ok that woman is dumb as hell for trying to open a gumbo restaurant in Lorain, Ohio but I suppose you can assume that's one of common mistakes among failed restaurateurs. Wrong theme in the wrong place.

    well the way to succeed is to find a niche and fill it

    it's always hard to figure out what isn't there because nobody cares and what isn't there because nobody's tried, though

    On the other hand, oversaturation is just as bad. Trying to open a gumbo place in Louisiana, or a brand new cheesesteak stand in Philly. You would be destroyed by the local institutions.

    I don't know if I agree with that really; seems like her biggest mistake was counting on those hotels to bring in most of her business and they never materialized.
