    Mims is a freaking fraud. I was the barmaiden who stuck up for him before (see convo with “Carole” on food blog), but he was a complete lie. I give people the benefit of the doubt and I gave him too much benefit in the first two weeks I met him. His food is decent, but I hope he goes to jail. Him and the (former) Freehouse owe many people paychecks. Do not eat there. It’s bad news! In three months time, Mims ran out literally a dozen employees from the Freehouse.
