Goodness Leftovers

The Senator had been asking various newsroom employees over the last few months if and when I could check out his former tenant, run by Chef Leo. I even had a story set up back in May, but the station decided to I would spend a month focusing on good breakfast places. So I canceled. And Chef Leo is now out of business. When I called Wednesday to set up this segment, the good senator did not mention his daughter had just opened her business a few hours ago! He was as cool as a cucumber and said come on down. It was a great experience. His little finger is healing after fighting off an intruder during the remodeling process. The story is Dave gave him money when the suspect showed a gun. But laid back Democrat was pushed too far when asked to give up his cell phone. He unleashed on the suspect and ended up with a broken pinkie, and kept his cell phone.

I with his daughter luck. The bread alone is worth a trip.
