Lakeview, especially around UNO’s campus, has been in dire need of restaurants that aren’t serving fast food to broke college kids and will last more than six months.

The cult filmmaker turned Hollywood heavyweight, Kevin Smith, has been delighting and beguiling his following since the early 90s with the release of Clerks. While his unique films have gathered a strong following, he has branched out into larger blockbusters as well.
