Moved out to 82nd and Division

Hung Far Low (the actual restaurant) moved out to 82nd and Division.  Seem that they could have used a bit of that 77K to put into the business.

UPDATE: Hung Far Low on 82nd streeet is now closed so we have an iconic sign for a business that no longer exists, not even across town 😦
