I used to frequent nearby restaurants and shops in Chinatown when I was living in Las Vegas. So, I know where Roma Deli is located. I would love to try it out the next time I am in Vegas. Maybe this fall.
That is a smart decision from them to invest in the business of selling food and drinks, sure it cost them a lot of money but it will be profitable one plus one of them probably has a knowledge in restoration which is an advantage...

a what? a restroom deli? now that's a concept that i wans't aware of, so how does it work in practice... i can only imagine that you sit on the toilet thinking about to sh1t or not to sh1t and figure out that you need a pint of guiness to make up your mind, just press the button and hot waitress brings you your beer in a zap...

I think this is nice investment if you have some extra money and like food and all about it, so noe you can create some recipes ypu want to try, maybe evn yourself or with help of pro chef and just spend time in your restaurant. I too would like to have my restaurant, no maybe better a pub

Besides it is a business, it is also a place that you can eat, and know exactly what they are serving you. Thats when you are eating on your own establishment. Cause there are many owners they dont even get close with the filth its in it

I think it was good for poker pro´s to have other business ideas outside their poker career. So they have the chance to see other things as only their hole cards And i´m sure that they play with a higher motivation.
