5 Rules Bar and Tavern Owners Should Remember

1.  Money won't buy your customers happiness but selling top shelf liquor generates more profits

2.  Learn to forgive those customers who makes a scene in your bar - but remember those bastards

3.  If you help a customer when they are in trouble they will remember you when they are in trouble again

4.  Remember many of your customers are alive today only because it is illegal to shoot them   

5.  Alcohol will not solve the problems of your customers but neither will milk or fruit juice

A Wonderful Exercise Workout for Bar Owners and Bar Staff Personnel

We all know it is important to exercise; however it you are a bar owner, bar manager or bartender or if you are part of a bar wait staff it is extremely critical you maintain good physical health. 

To help you establish an effective workout program I would like to share the daily workout regiment I currently use.  It is simple yet I promise you will see results quickly.

Before you begin your shift at the bar find a quiet area with a comfortable surface to stand.  Make sure you have plenty of room on each side.  Now pick up a 5-lb potato bag in each hand and extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can.

Don't be disappointed if you can't hold them very long the first few times, that's to be expected.  Just keep repeating this exercise each day before your shift begins.  You will soon find that you will be able to hold the 5-lb potato bags a little bit longer each day.

You goal is to eventually hold the 5lb potato bags for a full 60 seconds.  When you can hold the bags for one minute put them down and just relax.  After a couple of weeks using this method you will be able to move up to 10-lb pound potato bags. 

Then in no time you will be able to move up to 50-lb potato bags and then eventually you should be able to move up to 100-lb potato bags in each hand (this is currently the level I am at).

After you feel comfortable holding the 100-lb potato bags for a least a minute go back to the 5-lb potato bags but this time put a small potato in each bag begin the process all over again.
