  • The Former Bane of My Existance

    The owner was too stupid to let Jon Taffer's advice sink into her brain. After he redoes her whole bar and transforms it into Corporate Bar and Grill, she ends up making a ton of money, yet in the end she goes back to the Pirate Theme, wasting Jon's time and effort. She was $900,000 in debt and she just threw away here one single chance to get out of it and give her daughter a future. However, this is not why I hate these guys.

    I hate them because after she redid her pirate theme, she made a YouTube video of the Corporate Bar and Grill Slogan and burning it and destroying it. That was like giving a homeless person a house only to have the homeless person burn it down and spit in your face. So not only was she stupid enough to throw her one chance away from getting out of debt, she was so ungrateful to Jon that she basically spit in his face. Because of this stupid dumb owner. I give this episode a one out of ten for her stupidity, her ungrateful attitude and for wasting Jon Taffer's time that he could have used to fix a bar worth saving.

    I am fully aware that the bar is still open and the owner is renting a house, but my hatred remains. Jon spent 250,000 dollars to redo their bar, a GIFT to them. And how do they repay him? They undo his whole concept, not even giving it a chance, and do everything they can to insult and demonize Jon, a man, who only wanted to help them. It wouldn't even matter to me if they started serving the best food and drinks on the planet. I would never go there and give money to such ungrateful jerks.

    Now I am willing to admit that Corporate Bar and Grill is not a good name for a bar, however, they were in a corporate area and in addition, the behavior of the staff was so bizarre and Tracy was so delusional that I think that Jon was too stressed to think of a better name. I bet if Tracy and the staff were more patient and calm with Jon I think he could have come with a better name.

    UPDATE: After watching the O'Face episode where Jon Taffer walked out on the bar rather than rescue it, I now see O'Face as even worse than Piratz Tavern.moreless
