Bar Rescue2 VIPs have spoken »
Guest post written by my buddy Aldo Mays
Ever since we got Direct TV at home I have been completely addicted to Bar Rescue on Spike TV. I’ve always wanted to own a bar, so maybe that’s why I like the show so much.
The show is about a “bar expert” who helps failing bar owners spruce up their places and make a profit. Before watching this show I never realized how hard it really is to run a bar. I thought it was all fun and games, and that it would be a lot less stressful than my current job.
From watching the show I learned that I was sorely mistaken. Everything from the size of the glasses to the height of the barstools contributes to the profitability of the bar. I also see that keeping tabs on employees can be a huge challenge too.
The bar expert often changes the décor, and the menu of the bar, which doesn’t always go over well with the owners. I guess it’s not easy to admit that you aren’t doing a good job, but in the end they are all usually very happy with the results.
