A bar secret:
One of the ways you make money at a bar is exclusivity deals. For example, in my tiny crummy bar this week camel has given $3500 plus a 20% rebate on wholesale cigs and a mess o' free stuff. Redbull wrote a check for 4k and said "eh, buy chairs." It funny because bar owners get so greedy about the kickbacks (legal and illegal) that the come to rely on them. An un-named bar in the neighborhood recently ditched Budweiser for failure to cut them their 10k (illegal) annual check. As I blog of my deals, know that they are legal, but elsewhere, not so much.
