Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Accompanying Martin (John Mahoney) to Duke's, his favorite tavern, Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and Niles (David Hyde Pierce) learn that the establishment is about to be torn down to make way for a new mini-mall. Our heroes spend the rest of the episode trying to keep this depressing news from their father. They're less worried about hurting Martin's feelings than incurring his anger; it seems that both Frasier and Niles have a considerable financial interest in that mini-mall. Listen for a cute in-joke referring to Kelsey Grammer's previous series, Cheers.
