Beer Bucket Sold

This was mentioned earlier but may have gotten lost in the idle banter.
It seems the Beer Bucket has been sold to a couple of radio personalities in Dallas.
I can't imagine things changing much except a good scrubbing, new paint and perhaps updating the restrooms
Supposedly the deal should go through by March - hahahha - right

Here's a link to Big Al's blog where he discusses buying the bar and his experience with buying a business in Mexico.

Good point. I've been in it a number of times, but I can't say as I've ever "rested". The way that door fits, you can't afford to relax for a second.

Finally it comes out, I am not the Big AL buying the Beer Bucket. People have asked me was I buying the BB and I kept telling them absolutely not. It involves having employees and I sworn them off (having employees) in September 2007 - been there and done that - ain't no fun.

NNNOOOOOO!!! I love the "rustic charm" of the Bucket. I know the question was already asked, but anyone know what Sharkey and Ron's plans are? Please tell me I'll see Sharkey when I get there tomorrow.

Wow...sounds like he knows exactly what he's buying. i.e. "a small “dive” bar in playa del Carmen", "Now this place needs a lot of work but it is a great “starter bar”. Its dirty, its small and its very simple."

I'm not sure anyone knows yet. Maybe you can ask him for us tomorrow and report back here.
