From Behind the Bar: Real Estate

First of all for every two people you upset and will never visit your bar again there are likely three more coming up behind to order drinks. The issue isn't whether or not business is going to decline. However, I think this is poor service. I go to bars and I drink, and I go to bars and I drink water. I have had want for stools, or a chair, or even a sturdy wall to lean on. I have not ever cursed out another patron, either out loud or under my breath, because they have a stool and I don't regardless of whether they are drinking water or iced tea or long island iced tea. I think this practice is simply rude, and uncalled for.

Do you like buffets...really?
