and BAM! Another lawsuit. THIS one is the NM Department of Labor and one of the employees that didn't get their last paycheck against the woman managing the place now. Not off to a good start I'd say.

(wets finger and stcks it in air) yup.....it's an ill wind thats blows. I'm guessing we're in for a rough one.

Never went when it was the groovy gritz and do not see any reason to go when it is the arizona cafe. They still have stupid hours. Maybe they should be open 7am-7pm.

Went for lunch yesterday. This place isn't going to make it.

But then, this is TorC where mediocre is acceptable.

Would someone in the know just explain what is going on with this situation. How does someone "obtain the building without buying it"?

As an observer in the know, I'm thinking the answer will be coming in living color very soon.

you have nothing to do with the new Arizona cafe.

you made your point.

now just go away, unless you have more letters to the editor to write.

funny however, how the new owner managed the place for the last 6 months.

must be an undiscovered goldmine, seeing the food wasn't notable when YOU were the CHEF.

pay attention here..you get one chance there new owners...old habits are hard to change in town and you'll have to provide value and atmosphere to get customers.

the herald "story" did more harm then good if you really want to know.

check your market demographics and good luck

review may follow if I feel like changing my old eating habits

blake had one shot and failed at it, michales chased me of some of the worst service ever. The relaunched cafe in williamsberg got a shot and failed..closed in two weeks

you can't survive on passing traffic, that's a fact.

great food-good atmosphere-reasonable prices are the elements you should focus on.......again good luck.

eateries go out of business all the time, it is no secret that restuaran are the riskiest of all businesses to open.

Being an accomplished chef doesn't make you a good business person, nor does being an accomplished business person in one field mean you can jump to another and be equally as sucessful. I've seen enough episodes of the various realty shows out there to know that most businesses fail due to the owners not really knowing the basics of accounting, management and profit making.

Unless the new onwers had a non-compete clause with an employment contract, I can't imagine what the lawsuit could be about.

please continue to rate me as mean, clueless and nuts, as I am certainly accomplished at all three of these traits. Especially nuts.

There's also active wagering on when most businesses located downtown will fold.

Whats up with this town? I've lived n several. And I've never seen anything quite like this. Like there's a curse or something. I get the distinct feeling that a great many survive at the pleasure of the government. But its not thats its a poor town, there's something else, something bhind the scenes. Ive heard about indians being butchered by the white man while they weren't busy butchering each other, I don't buy it.

Go Telly...

You're on to it.

Curse of many, and continued corruption so deep they can't come clean.

The "curse" continues, and the vortex continues to suck out the psyches.
