He quit the restaurant business after hitting economic hardships and went on to become an electrician, but then returned to his love of cooking and was hired as executive chef at the Horse Shoe Pub and Restaurant. Shari, 37, is a waitress and office manager at Point Breeze. They believe this is their last chance to finally stop struggling and get ahead.
