    Mr. Goodbeer's. We would have good beers. But we would also have regular beer and cocktails, because it IS a business after all.

    Don't forget the weekly beer pong tournaments and drunken darts.

    Allshouse. Guy I work with has the last name Allshouse. I think it would be a good pub name.

    I'd call it The Sammich' Bar. It's spelled incorrectly, so it has to work.

    I answer your question with a question: why wouldn't I?

    You had said "no macros of any sort." BCBS is owned by the biggest beer company the world has ever known.

    Although technically true, come on...as long as the quality keeps up to what GI has always done, I'd serve Night Stalker, Big John, and King Henry (if it is ever brewed again, to the same standard of quality) in addition to any and all variants of BCBS. I will give you that it is a gray area given my proclamation, but for me that is something I am willing to cede in this special case.

    Fair enough. I was just checking. Some people think that even if the quality of BCBS stays the same, there are reasons why you shouldn't buy it any longer. I happen to be one of those folks and I was curious if you were as well.

    To each their own. If I was of higher principles, I'd be right there with you, but BCBS goes through my principles like I go through beer.

    I would move to the East Coast and start a bar called the The Drunken Clam, then face copyright charges most likely.

    See a theme? You can tell your wife/significant other your're going somewhere other than "the bar" and it sounds like it's a legitimate spot.

    From a pure marketing stand-point / name recognition / catchy name, I'd name my bar "None"

    I think people would get a kick out of saying "I'm going to bar-none"

    The Smoothbore.

    My middle name is Cannon. If you're homophone-friendly, it doesn't hurt that I'm also occasionally boorish. But like Capt. Solo, I have my moments.

    Instead of "Hooters" I wanted a place called "Cheeks" where all of the servers are hot waitresses with big round bubble asses. But I foresee just a problem or two with a place like that.
