    This project has been in the works for months now, and its mostly finished. He's budgeted out for now, but plans to add at least 4 more barstools, plus do some remodelling to the bar itself, and add some shelving behind it. Other than that, its for the most part done. Here's some pictures I took before and whilst drinking.



    That's right, tapped the extra fridge in the basement! she currently has a 16 gallon keg in her.

    DAMNIT. I didn't get a picture of the refrigerator door! :banghead:  It has another stolen sign, "Shoplifting and Bad Checks will be prosecuted to the Maximum" with "Scott County Prosecuting Attorney" in fine print at the bottom. That one and the thanks for shopping signs were my gift to them ;)

    Yes, its freakin' awesome. He had myself and my younger brother come down Saturday and stay the night (he was having a Superbowl party Sunday) so that we could "christen" the new bar. didn't leave the bar till 4 am, and was drinking again around 2, and drank till we left that night around midnight. I was still f'd up when I went to work this morning :lol 

    Here's basically what he's got for the fridge:

    :lol  it was only there for Sunday. you think he's gonna not have a TV in his living room? :p  I told him he needs to scratch the hell outta the polyeurothane coat on that floating bar so that it'll look more authentic hahaha My bro said he wants to add a second tap to the side of the fridge so he can have two quarter kegs in there just to have variety. I sure wish he wasn't 45 minutes away. That big-assed sign that has directions on it?? That was right in front of his house, across the road. Pulled it out with the pickup, it had 2 4by4s holding it up. :lol  oddly, they never replaced it.

    Nice job. I must be the only person of Mexican descent that hates Corona beer.

    *L* I love most beers. Havn't really gotten too into the darker stuff, but I've developed quite a diversity.
