Always best to hear it from the horse's mouth rather than his other end. I can see how Kimco's devamping the Westlake center may have cooked up some rumors and their plans for outdoor dining should help drive more customers into the warm comfort of your hallowed establishment.
I appologize if my request here to get more information helped fuel the rumor and am glad it can be now put to rest. Long live Joe's!
