La Carreta sells alcohol and food. Pizza Hut sells alcohol and food. Ginos sells alcohol and food. Sunset Grill sells alcohol and food. Cafe Acropolis sells alcohol and food. The list goes on!

Actually from the amount of money they make off of food sales there is absolutely NO WAY you can label it a bar only!

Well if its like all the rest of the pubs and grills or places that serve food and alcohol, then i would assume that if any of these other places ever burn down, then everyone will also chip in and bail the other ones out. Right?

Wonder why those same folks didnt step up to help out the other places that were torched or have been torched in the past. Guess them "PUBS" have priority.

Oh i dont personally have a problem with that. Just making an observation that a "PUB", bar and grill, whatever you choose to call it, received so much support, but for the life of me i havent been able to find anywhere where those same people have helped individuals that dont have a bar, pub,but a home for their family that has been damaged by fire. Get the drift? Must be an awful important watering, food, hole For the people of the town. Wonder if they would help pizza hut out if such an event took place? Guess we'll just have to keep an eye on the news for the next time someone in town loses their home to a fire or something, and see if these same people show up to support the family with money.

Then again we all know how "Bail-outs" go in America dont we? The poor guy or a small struggling and needed business in the community doesnt qualify for those kinds of things. Oh well, sometimes you CAN read and judge a book by its cover i guess.

Arent these types of businesses required to have insurance coverage for these types of tragedies to cover their costs in damages anyways, just like say, a furniture store or hardware store? Heck if everyone could receive that sort of support from a town in their times of difficulty, everyones insurance would be cheaper wouldnt it? No claims to file, no premiums going up.

And this is a little watering, food hole in your town huh? Hmmmm.......

Call it what you want, I love it. Nice place to go and watch a ball game.
Good thing is no one was forced to donate or support. Mudd, it is my right to support what I wish. I would figure you of all one stand on that belief. It is your right to not support it. All is good.
