MAY 2014 - BARS/CLUBS/LOUNGES/SPORTS BARS
What is up with Food and Beverage Employees using cell phones while workin?
I have seen Bartenders use them while customers are waiting for drinks.
I have seen Servers use them while preparing trays of condiments, silverware and drinks to be served.
I have seen Kitchen Staff use them while tickets are coming in at a fast pace.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE ACCEPTABLE FOR CELL PHONE USE DURING WORK.
What is up with the "CRAFT BEER CRAZE" totally ignoring how to keep Craft Patrons in their Brew Pubs, their Craft Tap Rooms longer, spending more?
They tweaked their format around the foam, they totally left out "THE FUN".
I remember visiting a Beer Brewery, and then entering their Beer Room, where you enjoy their Brews, but you had no other reason to stay. There was no "FUN", no "FOOD", not greasy, typical bar food, but real fresh eats, there were no Revenue Returners for these "Craft Beer Venues". It's as if these Craft Beer Creators, don't think that people want more than just enjoying their unique brews.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR ANY BEER TAP ROOM TO TOTALLY IGNORE A FORMAT OF BREWS, BITES, BEATS, AND MORE.
What is up with Trendy Bars not featuring the following BARTASTIC BOTTLES:
CAPTAIN MORGAN WHITE RUM: A Must~!
GODIVA DARK CHOCOLATE LIQUEUR, umm can you Ladies Love.
BACARDI MANGO FUSION RUM: A flavored Rum that infuses your bar.
THREE OLIVES ELVIS PRESLEY COCONUT WATER VODKA: Just think "Blue Hawaii".
JACK DANIEL'S TENNESSEE FIRE: Spicy hot Cinnamon Liqueur.
There's no excuse not to POUR off those bottles on your bar gathering dust, just sitting there and replace them with "Richie's RIVE FIVE", New Patron Pours in Demand !!!!!!!

What is up with the "F Bomb" as the typical type of language used in your bar or club, you, your manager, your staff, and your customers are showing a complete lack of self respect, self esteem, character, civility.
It is the worse reflection, image, and perception you want to project.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE ACCEPTABLE FOR THIS WORD BEING SPOKEN AT YOUR ESTABLISHMENT DURING WORKING HOURS.
What is up with your Bartenders actually drinking while working?
If your "Bartenders" are drinking during their shift, it is the most dangerous situation that you place yourself as the Owner, your Staff as the employees and most of all your customers lives in.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE ACCEPTABLE FOR BARTENDERS, SERVERS, MANAGERS
TO BE DRINKING DURING THEIR WORKING HOURS.
When you don't implement strict, I repeat STRICT rules, policies, that when violated, there are consequences that end in termination.
You don't find Good Staff on Craigs List, you don't find Great Staff by placing notices on your own web site.
BAR RESCUE BEING SUED, BECAUSE IT CROSSED THE LINE............................................
FIRST, THE FOLLOWING IS THE RESULT OF "BAR RESCUE" GOING TOO FAR.
1. JON TAFFER SHOULD HAVE NEVER EVER LET HIS WIFE BECOME PART OF THIS SHOW, AS A "RECON EXPERT" IN A BAR THAT THE PRODUCERS, THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS, KNOWINGLY AND INTENTIONALLY CREATED A SEGMENT THAT HAD ZERO POSITIVE IMPACT.
2. JON TAFFER SAT IN HIS SUV AND LET THIS DISTASTEFUL INCIDENT GO ON AND ON.
3. THIS SHOW DID NOT NEED TO RESORT TO THIS STAGED STORYLINE TO GENERATE VIEWERSHIP.
4. THIS ENTIRE ELEMENT OF THIS EPISODE HAD NO BEARING, NO FACTOR TO SHOW THE DIRE FINANCIAL CONDITION THIS BAR WAS IN.
5.THIS IS NOT THE FIRST LEGAL ENCOUNTER "BAR RESCUE" HAS BEEN CHALLENGED ON.
THE PRODUCTION COMPANY WITHOUT THE CITY'S PERMISSION, APPLICATION FOR SIGNS, SIMPLY HUNG ILLEGAL SIGNS AND SYMBOLS FOR A BAR, THAT JON TAFFER RESCUED, AND THE BAR WAS REQUIRED TO REMOVE THE SIGNS AND THE MOTORCYCLE THAT WERE HUNG IN THE AIR TO ATTRACT ATTENTION TO THE ESTABLISHMENT.
THE SHOW NEEDS TO CLEAN UP IT'S ACT, STOP ALL THE DRAMA, AND FOCUS ON THE INNER WORKINGS OF ACTUALLY RESCUING "A BAR".
Reality shows are accused all the time of being fake, but an assault and battery complaint filed today against Spike TV’s Bar Rescue might have gotten a bit too real for all concerned. A Vegas doctor is alleging that he was set up by the production company to hit on host Jon Taffer’s wife and then attacked by the bar and nightlife expert for doing so. In the 4-claim jury
trial filing (read it here) today in LA Superior Court, Dr. Paul Wilkes is seeking general, actual and punitive damages as well as medical and legal expenses, pain and suffering and “other and further relief as the Court many deem just and proper” from the February 11, 2013, incident. The doctor is suing Taffer; his wife Nicole, who also is on the show; and Bongo LLC, a limited liability company of producer 3 Ball Productions. Wilkes, who is part owner of the Sin City bar that used to be known as the Sand Dollar, “has suffered and continues to suffer severe emotional distress which results in physical manifestations including but not limited to migraine headaches, nausea, vomiting, night terrors, crying spells, severe depression and anxiety attacks,” says the filing of the on-camera dust-up that saw Taffer punch the doctor in the jaw, among other things. Portions of the incident were seen on the show’s July 7 Season 3 broadcast entitled “Don’t Mess With Taffer’s Wife” (watch a clip from the episode below).
The irony is that Wilkes was the one who got himself and his financially troubled bar on Bar Rescue by sending an email in November 2012 to the producers pitching his establishment as one Taffer could help turn around. When being filmed for an audition for the show, Wilkes says he took the advice of casting director Lauren Kalb of Metal Flowers to act “outlandish” to further his effort to get himself and the bar on the Spike TV show.
To that end, during the December 2012 filming, Wilkes and one of his biz partners shot their mouths off about going to strip bars. In subsequent meetings with Bongo employees including EP Tim Warren and especially story producer Al Rincones, Wilkes says he was encouraged to make “offensive comments about women” and act out for the cameras. All of which the good doctor did, including using his charms and anatomy pick-up lines on Nicole Taffer when she and a friend entered the Sand Dollar on February 11 last year. Wilkes claims that he was told Taffer wasn’t even in Vegas when his wife was in the bar. But unscripted being unscripted, Taffer was in fact outside in an SUV – though he supposedly was a bit in the dark as well, according to the detailed suit. “Taffer was unaware that Rincones directed Dr. Wilkes to make the offensive comments about women during filming of the casting tapes, or to hit on Mrs. Taffer,” says today’s complaint. “While watching the scene inside the SUV, Taffer called the control room and told a staff member to make sure there was a drink near the spot where he intended to confront Dr. Wilkes, so that he could throw it in Dr. Wilkes’ face,” the filing adds. In the end, with that and a whack to the head, Dr. Wilkes got much more than he expected — though he did get his bar on TV.
Justin Nash of Los Angeles and Deanna Diamond of Chicago are representing Wilkes in the suit.

BAR AND GRILLE VORTEX
You serve liquor, your Menu should be uptasted, you show sports, you are a multi food & beverage venue.
But there are so many elements of your format, that are not producing cash for you. GET RID OF THAT ATM MACHINE.
Why would you charge a customer a fee for withdrawing money to spend at your bar and grille?
Why would you just serve food and liquor, but not have any "FUN", or "WOW FACTORS" or "FAB" to keep Patrons spending during the night, instead of leaving and going elsewhere?
Stop pouring money into a losing bar and grille.
Stop living in a fantasy World, that things are going to get better, when you are doing NOTHING to make them BETTER.
Stop paying your staff for doing nothing but standing around, send them home, let some of them go.
Reduce your overhead ASAP.
If your months away from closing this didn't happen overnight, I cannot perform Magic.
You have to stop the flow of RED the moment you see it.
Stop watching TV Shows and start living the reality of your food and beverage establishment.
If you do not serve food you should.
If you serve food and close at 10pm you shouldn't.
If you have no funds, then either beg, borrow, or let someone buy in for a Minority Interest, only if it's worth continuing to operate?
If you don't know, then email me, I will tell you straight up.
