Spending Money You Didn't Plan On

     We got the paneling up on the front faces of the bars on Pearl Street today, replacing the carpet that had been there for years. New York recently discovered the rug and said it had to go, and I griped at the heavy hand suggesting I spend several hundred dollars for something not causing a problem to anyone and present in many locations.
     However, replacing it with faux brick paneling actually looks a lot nicer, so I now appreciate the hand of Cuomo.

From carpet to fake brick? Congrats, you've gone form the 80's to...the 80's.

Did you ever notice that the bar rescue guy often rips out a perfectly good bar and replaces it with better one? He calms that a classier looking bar top helps command classier prices.

What did the state say was the problem with the carpeting?

Not a cleanable surface

Benito's character is not a cleanable surface either. But he's of the proper party, so I'm guessing golfers everywhere will always support him.

He said brick paneling 12:14, so it's faux brick.

Jeff, you should call Bar Rescue. A little public humiliation would be worth a free renovation. But you hat free stuff, I forgot.

That bar rescue man can kill a good bar too. Jeff's bar is a Pub. Not a dance club. You won't go in to see a guy dancing around in short shorts, making a woo woo sound.

Obviously you've not watched the show 2:32. Bars, pubs pretty much the same. He dives into all of them.

Thanks for that visual. You do realize Crazy Ray is there a lot, right?

Sorry Ray, I doubt they make short shorts in your size.
