Hope no one was injured.

Reminds me of the time back in '77(?) when I was walking to class to find my favorite bar (Second Chance) burned to the ground.

In a somewhat unrelated note, social media is amazing.

I hope you got a second chance.

That's some fire.

Now the question - was it set by Jereme Richmond, and is that why he didn't play last weekend? :laugh:

Ugh, not Zorba's! We used to go to their jazz thing every Thursday.
