If you aren't familiar with Bar Rescue, it's on Spike TV and the host is John Taffer. He helps breathe new life into bars on their death bed by pointing out weaknesses like management flaws, lazy staff, underperformance and/or general disregard for cleanliness. They've had some real winners on the show. Note the sarcasm.
Initially, I didn't want to check out Bar 702 because the co-owner doctor came off so vile I didn't want to give him any of my hard earned dollars, but curiosity got the better of me and we checked it out last Friday night. Frank, my brother and I got there about 10:30, there was a $5 cover.
We figured we were in deep, now, so we bellied up to the bar. My brother tried one of the beer look alike cocktails created on the show with Crown and Caramel bitters. It was pretty terrible. Then again, I'm pretty loyal to beer so what do I know? I was happy as a clam with Ballast Point Pale Ale for $5.25. They had a good list of microbrews, Frank had some squirrel beer that was mighty tasty.
