Mataphor for Frank is one of those once busy cafes that had its hey day in the 70's. Place you would visit because there was nothing else nearby food was occassionaly good. But most often rubbish.

But now decades later you are one of the few people who still bother to visit. Out of nostalgia and tell everyone how great this place used to be and how busy it was back in the day.

But everyone else chills out the at the glitzy restaurant called " Eddies". Down the road. "Eddies" place is what they like to visit and discuss amongst themselves nowadays.

Yeah, Frank is serving egg and chips washed down with weak tea to pensioners.

All the cool kids are over at Eddie's having flat whites and smashed avocado on artisan toast.

Men.

Boys.
I am one of those old guys who still supports Franks cafe. Out of nostalgia. Franks prime is behind him as is mine and the other old timers. Who are still team Frank.

It is now the Eddie Hearns era he presents his Egg and Chips and weak tea in fine china and charges twice the price.

In my opinion Frank was better at building the careers of novice fighters from scratch and turning them into stars. Likes of Calzaghe, Hatton, Khan and many more.

Hearns is not a builder but a better marketer.

If nothing else I am pleased Franks Cafe is still running.

As you get older all the familiar places start to disappear. The Barbers Shop is now a designer boutique.

The Dry Cleaners is now a shop selling gourmet Burgers.

The local shoe store disappeared long ago and is now a Pizza Place.

The old guy who had a shop doing tailoring and alterations died long ago. His shop is now a beauticians.

Bit by bit all those familiar places in the local neighbourhood have disappeared. The owners have either expired or moved away.

Buildings look familiar but occupied by different owners and busineses.

But through all this Franks Cafe has always been there, and has always remained open. Having a familiar place like that is something quite comforting as you get older. All the young hipsters can go and hang out at that cool and glitzy restaurant down the road called Eddies. But Franks Cafe despite being outdated has its own charm for the old timers , for the simple reason it has been around for decades and is part of the memories going back decades.
