This is the red arrow diner in Manchester, New Hampshire Bratt are you still alive and aren't you only. Well I'm feeling prey on are you kidding me. Some of the breasts breakfasts I never had. And this is the granddaddy of them all this is the red arrow diner. It's been in operation since 1922. To lighten the heart of downtown Manchester so it is a favorite. With all the candidates that come through New Hampshire and all of them come through New Hampshire which means this diner has seen more than presidential candidates than perhaps any other. And and it still plays host to a ton of regular customers that I think were hopefully will be the second. Really really feel good from the outside a million and a half men and more importantly I blinked. Oh absolute. We have been over. Man I should point out by the way that. That is. That is because they've actually does not order a huge renovation yet but I wanted to point out it was a bit low but they're rock music here he regularly hears them. Blasting here.

Stores. Customers react. Just fine. Don't they get a little. You're SE but some. Oh Brad what if he's looking for this campaign. What if you wanna feed from the candidates including C hope come. So yeah that's a great question on the kennel. Successful. Strategy for a candidate. I'm six cans of the state we don't give anyone the chance and if somebody wants. Somebody walks in the door is sort of a state where. A Democrat from somebody votes Democrat off and we'll still talk to a Republican and try to figure out what they're about his a lot of people that are sort of frightening. Puncher who didn't vote.
