    IMO if they're byron bell and 2013 playcalling level bad we're still good for 8-8 by virtue of improvements elsewhere alone.

    people poo on them, but i don't see the saints or bucs finishing much below 8-8. the division should be much more competitive as a whole. we, of course, will demolish them all.

    the falcons have been putting the cart before the horse for the past half decade. have they done anything to improve that offensive line? aside from the DE pick, have they done anything to bolster their defensive line? 
    i think they'll be improved, but the same basic problems are going to dog them until they get a few years under quinn to rebuild the team they way he wants. 8-8 is their ceiling this year.

    yep, rent should be under $2k a month, plus utilities, insurance, and obviously product.

    part of the rationale behind not doing liquor is not having to worry about stupid ALE laws about having to make food account for 50% of revenue, which then eliminates the purely functional need to have food sold on the premises (i don't wanna have to deal with a membership system, which is the alternative to a liquor-serving bar with no alcohol.) it also vastly cuts down the upfront costs, staffing, storage, etc.
    liability insurance costs are pretty low (should be 1-2k per year) and profit margins shouldn't be too bad on beer and wine. shrinkage should be much lower than it would be with liquor and food.

    curious how many other people this is specifically a problem for. does a frosted glass make a difference at all, or is it simply that fact it's not a draft?

    would it bother you that the menu wasn't in-house? if you could put in an order at the bar for, say, potato skins, and ten minutes later it showed up at your table for consumption on the spot, would this make a difference for you?

    Pretend this bar opens up in your city. Would you go to it?
    Hey look, a new bar just opened up in your city! It has a fairly upscale sounding name. It's a craft beer bar the deals solely in bottled beer and wine. No draft systems, no liquor. No food prepared on the premises, but there's a food menu available for standard pub grub contracted out by a local food joint (you place the order with the bar and a delivery guy comes in with your hot sub or whatever.)
    The bar features something like two hundred different beers, ranging from your standard light beers, Yuenglings, whatever, but is known for not just craft beers but international beers. An entire selection of beers from Laos, for instance, or every beer australia's ever produced. Menus are divided by country rather than style, and subcategorized by style. You can travel the world on the menu.
    The bar itself is very small, very intimate. The decor is artistic without being obnoxious or overwhelming. interesting artwork, some cool lounge areas. Music is a random mix of 90s rock, pop, and covers. Occasional live music (acoustic covers) in the back, probably friday nights.
    While the bar is not themed as a sports bar in any sense, it's marketed to be the de facto Panthers bar in your city, if your city doesn't really already have one. This means on Sundays the place gets absolutely packed out. There's a number of televisions and you don't have to twiddle your thumbs nervously hoping the bartender will have the game on at kickoff. Always Panthers on the main screens, always Panthers sound kicked way up. There's not going to be tons of room, so you better get there early - it's exclusive, and it's mostly Panthers fans.
    The establishment is located in the downtown section of your city, in the middle of the bar districts. It'd be most easily accessible by parking and walking (think NoDa in Charlotte.) May look something like this (white storefront in the first picture, small unit on the far right of the building on the second picture.)
     

     
     
    Would you go to this bar with any frequency, based on its description here? What would you like about it? What would turn you off about it? What would make you come back, what would keep you away? Any and all opinions are welcome (and desired.)
