However, for Rob Feenie, owner and executive chef of Lumiere, spending $1.2 million on a new kitchen for his flagship restaurant was a no brainer.

I Have Music Again

For almost two weeks I’ve been driving around without music in my car because of a bad circuit breaker. Why didn’t I just replace the breaker?
