Kyle Kelly talks to Dick and Loy about changes in the neighborhood, the new popularity of craft brews and whiskeys, and how nice it is to enjoy cigars on the heated rooftop deck while taking in the view. It's true that the third generation of Kelly's has officially taken over, but Kyle and his brothers still tell the best stories.
