Some of the bars may be losing money now that the video gambling games have been shut down in Highland.

Railshake sucks now anyways, who would want to go there. All there is is scum that go there and the owners do not care about that place at all. They are running it down, the bartenders suck and are ugly. what happened to all the good bartenders a year ago and years back. RAILSHAKE IS A SHITHOLE!

Hey thanks no name. I was a bartender at RailShake back in the day. We did have pretty bartenders didn't we? It used to be a blast in there. It really went down over the past couple years.

NOT ANYMORE-the bartenders this year do not do their job. they are lazy and rude. i used to come to Railshake everyday in the mornings and sometimes afternoons and they are good for nothing. i don't know why they would get rid of the best bartenders they had, but i guess it might be because Phyllis(bless her soul) let her dumb ass daughter and whoever he is take it over. there are so many regulars that i know that go to marks brothers or ethels now. GOOD JOB JACKIE AND WHOEVER YOUR HUSBAND IS! JUST SHUT DOWN, IT WOULD BE FOR THE BEST.

i agree with the people who don't like Railshake anymore. it used to be fun. get some better day and night bartenders and maybe you would get more business. the stripper chick needs to go and what about that new daytime bartender. she needs to go back to wherever she came from because she can not bartend or serve food. you owners need to check yourself in what you are doing to your business or just give it up to someone else and they can fire them and get a new crew. Phyllis would be turning in her grave if she knew all this.

Speaking of the old days of Railshake, does anyone know how Shorty is. I have not heard about him for a while now. I remember him and old Donny Barnes used fight up there at the bar all the time. Wow, it makes me laugh just to think about it.

the garmons do not own the bar they just lease it from sam perkins. the garmons will never own Railshake and i can't believe they even tried running the business, like Dave Garmon said he loved the fact that Jackie had a mom who owned a bar. he is such a PIG!

Jackie's mom was an interesting woman. I remember how when Jackie and I were kids I was amazed when I went to their home that was just beautiful.

Ya'll probably didn't know Phylis in her younger days but I can remember people talking about her when I was a kid and she had a real wild streak. Hard to believe ain't it?

As for Jackie the last time I had seen her was at BAC. She was going to school to be an X-ray tech. I am sure she graduated the program. Did she just give up a medical career just to be trying to run a bar with her husband?
