I am a white woman , I live in Texas. I saw this article after searching for something else. Sweeny sounds as ignorant as they come, saying something g stupid like wine doesn't belong with "chitlins and collard greens.' Wine goes with many types of food, and wine is drank in the south with southern dishes. Lolas seemed like a classy restaurant . What the hell did the wonderful bluesy music and a liquor license have to do with ruining the neighborhood ? Nothing. The owners had a great establishment. Sweeny needs his butt kicked. Stupid man.. I may be white but even I think Sweeny sounds racist.
