The Pinky's thing is hilarious, they are delusional. Their little food shop fits like, 3 people and they feel they are somehow entitled to build a shantytown on the street years after the pandemic emergency measures. Get all this out of here. Around the corner you've got Lil Frankies making a fortune by using a massive amount of public parking space, waiters crossing bike lanes, tables all over the very busy sidewalk. It's crazy. I don't feel bad for them at all and they probably just think the media will get some clueless person to make them a GoFundMe.
