Maybe they can partner with Piero's Pizza across the street and do pop up events.

Ehh it's fun to make fun of billy but the third wave of gentrification that forces out all the interesting businesses sucks.

I watched this happen in NYC and now I'm watching it happen here in Orlando.

Same thing is happening in Minneapolis and it does suck. Everything has to be luxury apartments/condos with chains street level. Between 3 ongoing developments my neighborhood will have 498 new apartments. Probably won't be long before I'm priced out of the neighborhood.

It's almost like everything new Billy tries he doesn't score the highest in the history of the thing at.

I went when I was in Chicago. It wasn’t anything special, but im glad I at least saw it. I paid entirely too much for what was basically a peanut butter and banana sandwich that I could’ve made myself in 2 minutes. The nice girl working didn’t give us any napkins, Airplane Mode noticed and got us some. Seemed annoyed. The best part was when Billy walked in through the back, went into the men’s room for like ten minutes, came out and left. He looked a little disheveled and had a bucket hat. There was a ton of random shit for sale and it all just seemed so slapped together. That was the most bizarre thing to me

Corgan has told a visitor nearly a year ago that there were problems with the landlord, probably forcing them to go somewhere else. Time enough to look for another venue...

If this was about profits he would have closed it years ago. Dude can make more than this place makes in a year in 1 club show. Seems like a pain in the ass to even keep it going for a dude with 20 mil. He must love the freaking tea.
