I went to Gator's to get me two or several cold beers this afternoon cause the old battleaxe was giving me hell about laying around in my drawers watching Pawn Stars all day. Hell I ain't got nothing to do. There's nothing going on in Raliegh and I've sold all my pens and pencils. I needed to drink beer and belch and fart like normal folks do. I'm tired of being a stuffed shirt doing what I am told to do by Beverly Perdue and the old battleaxe. I swear women drive me crazy. You can't live with them and you can't live without them. Well, I guess you could if you are gay. I'm not gay. I don't think. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I'm all for gay rights, gay marriage, gay adoption, big old penises, sodomy, oral copulation, men tongue kissing, all that stuff. Nothing wrong with that. Kind of kinky but nothing wrong with it. Like I said I needed a beer so I got in the old rattletrap and pulled into the Gator's parking lot. Sign on the door said REMINDER CLOSED. WTF? I went to the Dollar General and bought me some beer and a bag of Cheetos. The old battleaxe won't let me keep it in the fridge cause you know "what would the neighbors think" Sheetfar I don't let the neighbors look in my refrigerator but what the hell. She rules with an iron hand so I better do what she says. I sat in the driveway and drank them hot. After I had drunk 2 or 6 beers and eaten all the Cheetos I looked in the mirror and my tongue was bright orange which I thought was funny as hell. The old battleaxe came out to see what was so damn funny and chewed me a new one. I slept real good in the car.

Jeff and all the Gator crew is on vacation That's why the sign says Reminder instead of closed. They have been planning it. Gators is doing good.

They owe Beeler Wholesale, the beer distributor company thousands of dollars. They are about broke and can't pay the bill. I don't think they will reopen unless they find somebody to lend them some money.

It makes me sick to think my favorite bar/club is closed. I enjoyed the bands, the food and the people. The place was hopping most nights and did a good business at night. They sold a lot of food and beer most nights. To make it around here you need a good lunch business and Gator's worked at it but it never caught on with the lunch crowd. The second thing that hurt them was they were getting a bad reputation for the fights that were happening there. Jeff was real concerned that they might get sued because of all that.

Jeff is just closed down so he can remodle the whole place. He bought out John and is changing the name of the bar to "Knuckle Heads". He will open by April.Look for big name bands and he also will be open for breakfast, lunch & dinner . Going to be the best bar in Union County .

One says he is on vacation, one says he is remodeling, one says he is reopening under a different name, and one says he is closed. Does anyone know the truth?

The truth is jeff lasted only about 7 months then went belly up . Buddy parker moved out of there because it was tuff to make it there but Jeff with his almighty experince at running a business thought he was the one that was going to break the bank ! Time to go back into the imaginary bar business good luck .

I got the straight on it from one of the former employees. Said they couldn't pay their bills. Said Jeff took out a loan just to pay everybody before he closed.

There is too much middle school drama at Shooters. A man can't drink a beer in peace with all the blubbering and loud mouth shenanigans that go on in Shooters every time I'm in there. It's easier on my ears and cheaper on my wallet to drink at home. The "adults" that frequent Shooters are worse than children.

I had more fun at flop lollys than shooters . Nothing but Drama there ,the owners have mental issues really bad . Less people are going there and many people don`t like loud mouths in a bar . Give them 2 more months then later gater just like gators .

There is more noise and loud mouths in that bar you thought you where in the floor os the NewYork Stock Exchange . People yelling and foghting all the time . They have lost a lot of their customers because of this. That place belongs on the Jerry Springer Show !

Yes, Gator's has closed permanently. I think the Japanese Hibachi Grill may have also closed. I haven't seen any cars there this week. I was in there a couple of weeks ago and noticed that their business had fallen off a good bit. Someone told me that the Subway opening in the Lavine Medical Building killed their lunch business.
