3k a week for rent in herkimer you are not even close?....that dump is worth 1500 tops....i could run that place 6500 a month easily all expenses payroll etc....the market in herkimer is very small and the number failure of business is mis managment....but she will have to make a choice either gonna be a bar or a restaurant...isnt really a happy medium esp in herkimer!!
First of all there is a niche to fill and a way to do it in Herkimer. It could be done in that building but not the way the building is set up now and certainly not with that overhead....that's another story.

3K a month, I'm not close, BS. What do you think Joe was paying? I think it was 3.5K and if the kitchen is in operation there's 2K+ and continue adding. Trust me someone hasn't thought it out and is in way over there head.

I wouldn't pay more than 15 hundred rent either...no f-ing way but do you think the building owners get it? NOPE.

I don't think so. I believe with a name like "Belly Up Pub" she's shooting a little lower. You and your friends are good to go.

Relax. There is no explanation need for the name. She intends to use a cartoon character of a hillbilly wearing a half-shirt exposing his beer-belly as a mascot for the new tavern.

That aside she needs to get a pencil with an eraser to do some math.

A chic running a bar? Maybe I'll buy a boutique. I could even do nails…

Be ready for an uphill battle after the first couple of months.

I don't think the sex of the owner matter around here. Running a bar is a challenge regardless.
And good luck with the nails. Men usually do a better job w them :)

It's def not gonna be a hole in the wall like the rest of the dumps in Herkimer. She's had a successful business for ten years now, and many would argue that it's the best salon in the valley. It's gonna be a real nice spot to hang out and have a good time. Sex of the owner doesn't mean shit. There is not gonna be any underage drinkers there, no thugs are gonna be there, and all the scums can stay over at Pete's. And FYI, Belly Up is part of a saying that goes "Belly up to the bar". But you moron scums are not intelligent enough to know that. But it's all good, the people talking crap, don't bother going, cuz your scummy asses won't belong there anyways. To the ones on here that really want to know, it's gonna be a nice place I believe, and better than any bar in the valley without a doubt.

Everybody knows where the name came from and whether it's intended to be a gimmick or not it still sounds low-class.

As far as bars and restaurants go, unless you've been there you have no idea what you're in for or talking about.

I wish the best of luck to the owner on starting off a business but at the same time the last thing Herkimer needs is another bar!

we sure hope she gets rid of the old faded dim mirror in front of the bar and installs a good selection of flat screen TVs

put the games on flat screen TVs you draw the guys and that draws the girls. THAT is the formula for success

we hope amy mosher understands this, elsewise, if she doesn't have sports on in that bar, she is missing out on lots of business

Wrong you fairy. You do what you have to to draw in the GIRLS and the guys will come. Sports bars generally dont have huge numbers of women hanging out you moron.
