What is the Pointe?
You all must have seen them around for the past 20 years. They are neighbors. Without homes.
Joe is the one with the cane and straw hat, you probably have seen him dancing at all the Grove events. He does odd jobs for bars and restaurants in the Center Village, too.
For some odd reason, I'm not sure why, and neither are the businesses they worked for, he and Bang Bang have now been banned from Florentine Plaza. The business owners don't feel that their landlord has the right to tell them who they can hire and who they cannot hire. That does seem to be stepping over bounds.
I think there is a lawsuit waiting here and it would be nice if a local attorney could do something about this as a favor to the guys so that they can at least make a few bucks a day so they can eat. They are honest, friendly and doing the right thing by working when they can. Business owners have been very generous with them and they are part of the flavor of the Grove, which seems to be leaving in the wake of PointeGroup Advisors. I am not sure why they are so evil. Their track record shows that they seem to pick on those who are weaker than them. They are bullies.
Maybe the PointeGroup should be more concerned with the mold growing right under their noses on the balcony of their offices. That seems to be more important than stopping a couple of guys from earning a few bucks so they can eat. Some "contemporary retail" concept they have going.
