    Re: Flashy joint...

    A "joint" usually refers to a bar (pub, tavern) or a nightclub - some sort of gathering spot for drinking and dancing. A "flashy" joint refers to an upscale nightclub; the decorations are expensive, the people in attendance are well-dressed and might even be celebrities, the cocktails are exotic, and the prices are high.

    Re: Flashy joint...

    And I have more question.

    "Why should losing staff be such a big deal?"

    In the above sentence, where is the subject, where is the verb, and where are the other clause elements?

    EX: Why should losing staff be such a big deal?

    The subject tends to come before the verb, and if the verb is a form a BE, then the bits that come after it are called the subject complement.

    EX: Losing staff should be such a big deal because ...
