The Scofflaw is EXCELLENT! Hope it's a regular entry on the bar menu!

By the way Jay, the WC bar scene NEEDS a reference space patterned after your dark wood, well-stocked and dimly lit 'dream bar'. Not Oakland. Not Berkeley. WALNUT CREEK. DO IT!

Anonymous: Sounds great. Please mail your investment check to me ASAP! Kidding aside though, I would love to open a bar that serves food, but is still a bar and cocktail lounge first and foremost, in the near future. Hopefully I'll find some investors sooner rather than later. As for opening one in Walnut Creek...I would love to!
