Hi Jaime

Two short interviews just posted for you to check out...

The first is an update with Dale about lease negotiation right now.

Some really good tips of what to look out for when making any changes/updates to your lease.

I also had a chance to interview Sam Toia, the CEO of the Illinois Restaurant Association.

We talked specifically about the PPP program...

The good, the bad, the ugly...and what might come next...
