My son lives in Queens so I looked the dude up to see if it was a restaurant we had been to when we were down there for a visit back in the olden days of travel. Totally serious, this is the name of the place.

Yeah, I mean that's an extreme double fail, plus the name of the restaurant is "Ignited" (it's also a hookah lounge), but it's also heartbreaking how many established, independent, small businesses like this are going under. The owner is a criminal, but I still feel bad for him.

Oh sure, that's the part they meant.  It obviously it was the last name - they think he's one of THOSE people!

I felt bad for him.
Until you mentioned it's a hookah lounge.
That thing is worse than cigarettes. If you've ever cleaned one out, especially the pipe connected to the mouthpiece you'll know what I'm talking about.
The whole inside of the thing gets covered in tar, I kid you not.
People who (knowingly) make money off making others sick disgust me.

Yeah, but the Tar stays in the hookah, instead of your lungs... duh! /s

Raja has been charged with one count of arson, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in federal prison with a maximum sentence of 20 years if convicted.

I wonder what got the feds involved. Attempted fraud on an insurance company?

You know the Fed didn't care about Fraud last August... So, if it is recent fed involvement, maybe it is the new Admin look on fraud.

Maybe the owner/business just didn't sound "John Smith" enough to get away with arson and insurance fraud...

But I'm sure that isn't the case - not in the US.

Resident Muslim: I'm guessing restaurants and hotels will have pandemic insurance coverage in the future


After insurance companies see how this one played out, even if an insurance company offered businesses pandemic coverage in the future the premiums would have to be gigantic, particularly for restaurants. We're almost a year into this and still undergoing shutdowns, and we'll be in outdoor dining and low occupancy mode for months after shutdowns are over.

This.  Pandemic insurance is going to be extremely expensive and will hardly cover anything.  Probably just rent and utilities.  I really feel for this restaurant owner, my food company is putting me into debt which will probably take my entire life to pay back.  My lease is up in a couple years, I will try to negotiate a pandemic clause for lower rent in the case of a gov mandated shutdown.

I have actually met multiple (apparently) unrelated Nigros in my life. They pronounce it "NYE-gro".

// although I suspect that's not how it is pronounced in the Italian.

Ah, I see you've dealt with people who say "but the water filters everything!" most probably because of how murky the water gets.
The pipe is AFTER the water. And there is nothing between that pipe and your windpipe, so imagine the same thing happening to you!

Best of luck.
I have a training/development business.
1) training and marketing are the first things out the window when there's a financial slowdown
2) people stopped all in-person training, and believe it or not, one year ago online group training was relatively rare and people didn't take to it, especially in terms of soft skills (not hard skills where you just need to pick up stuff that's easily classified as right or wrong).

I'm VERY grateful for the landlord I have, who is kindly and gently waiting for me to pay rent on the office even though I'm many months delayed.
