    As we near parade day everywhere, we touch on some of the St. Paddy's Day culinary items, as well as sober driving. Jae offers the free Uber Eats hack that he accidentally discovered working late night when the kitchen was down.
    Paul Russo from Pax Romana (http://paxromanany.com/) drops by to talk about his start in understanding Hospitality as well as the first half of our conversation with him about taking on a fraudulent lease, having to rebuild a restaurant after 1 year - in a new location, and more. This guy is the epitome of welcoming.
    Paul also hung out for a second while we touched on our Voicemail from a bartender wondering why the place he works at purchases their own simple syrup instead of buying their own.
