Re: “GRILL 1994-2011

I would love to love this article because this is where I grew up, but I just cannot. In the first few paragraphs the owner basically calls it a shit hole before he owned it. My grandparents put their lives into this restaurant. My dad, my aunt, and even my mom worked their butts off here, I grew up in a pack and play while they waited tables. Does this article mention any of that? The hard work my grandparents did put into that restaurant when it was renovated? The story of my grandparents turning it into The Congress Grill? That my grandparents came to Canada, not knowing a word of English or French and then immigrated to Phoenix before moving to Tucson and pouring their hearts and souls into this restaurant so their children and children's children would have a future and get to go to school? No. I am thankful that it does mention Mrs. Kim (whom they had sold the property to) and how she refused to help make it a better place. In the end, I still cannot respect this article.
