got your attention??? Leo al pastor works like a charm every time.  so some of y’all might already know that Amanda and I recently moved to Pasadena. It was our first time moving in 7 or 8 years and I got to admit I’m loving it here so far. It’s a direct shot to Howlin and it feels like you’re in a small community but you’re still so close to LA. Being here now rly got me thinking about the idea of opening the next Howlin here before opening a Westside shop. It’s something where I know that we could manage the standards of both spots simultaneously without the bones of Howlin having to change. Curious what my friends and fam think about this before I start to think deeper into it. So lmk, what do u think? Let me have it   #keepithowlin

when you start putting yourself out there trust me you got to have thick skin. me??? i’m blessed because I got a whole squad to back me up my crew and my Howlin’ fam is far reaching. all I kno is I’ve come too far to let anybody beat me down or make me change who I am. No trolls, no haters. nobody. we live in a society where ppl want to tear each others down. why tho??? how does anyone win from that? let’s build each other up. what is our legacy??? What is yours? one of the most important questions my chef ever asked me. work hard, do what you know is right and be real about what u stand for and tune out all the rest of that noise. life way too short not to. 🤜🤛 photo by @amandajozone

Throwback pic of my pops. Man did he leave too soon. He rolled the dice and left the steel mill in Fontana when he was 35 years old to pursue his 3-D dreams in LA. I wasn’t even born till 5 yrs later. He lost his father before he was old enough to remember him. He lost a sister to senseless murder. He pushed himself to be great at something and he never backed down right up to his dying day. lucky to call him my father.  #missingyou

At the end of the day when all is said and done I kno one minute your hot and the next your not. people tell me to strike while the iron is hot and make the most of Howlin now while I have the chance...the thing they don’t kno is that for me Howlin is not and never has been about that. I want the business to grow and thrive for as long as we can keep going and I’ll fight for that but really truly the reason I do it is for this. ️Everyday we find beauty in the chaos and we finish with our heads held high because we gave it our all to make Howlin something special. and even if that’s all it ever is that’s more than enough for me. #nashvillehotchickeninla
