    Is BDC's "The Babe" opening a bar?

    The name is not obscene, it doesn't infringe on any copyright, and it doesn't conflict with anyone's civil liberties. And yet, the bar owner who thought up the moniker is having trouble getting a liquor license, which is keeping him from earning a salary of his own, let alone employing a good-size staff in New Brunswick, N.J.

    Of course, if mispronounced, the name in question, "Buck Foston's" could sound terrible. And let's face it, that's what bar-owner Larry Blatterfein is counting on. He's a lifelong New York Yankees fan who has no love for their major rivals, the Boston Red Sox. The Boston Herald reports that he's hoping the name will "engender an emotional response."

    Blatterfein claims that New Brunswick Mayor Jim Cahill, a dyed-in-the-wool Red Sox fan, is attempting to prevent the name by withholding a liquor license. Without a liquor license, a bar can hardly function.

    UPI reports that Blatterfein has been able to hire at least one person on the bar's behalf -- a big name constitutional lawyer who will help him defend his rights to name his bar whatever he chooses, as long as it meets decency standards and doesn't infringe on anyone's rights, if it comes to that. As usual, at least the attorneys will profit.

    Hardly, I try not to even go to durty joisey, let alone open a bar in that dump of a state. I wish they would build a wall around it to keep people like jim davis inside.

    This whole business is just wrucking fong.

    But let's face it, it's New Jersey.

    The Garden State.

    How it ever got that name, I'll never know.

    Maybe they meant to say Garbage State, but nobody there knew how to spell it.

    It is the financial team behind this maroon that ought to have their heads examined as well as connection to funds severed.

      ...  and once again we see that NYY fans aren't obsessed with the Sox ...


         Right.

    Then there was a bar and club where they had liquor in the front and poker in the rear.

    If Softy is the lawyer involved, they'll come to some sort of settlement and the bar will be named Wastefield's.

    For what? It may be a dumb idea but it is not in violation of any rules or codes.

    I recall a place in TN called "The C-ock of the Walk".
    I figure Burrito owned a piece of it.

    There was a bar in Dorchester named "Peter and Dick's". Not sure if it is still there as I have not been back to Boston in years. It was on Dorchester Avenue I believe. Anyone know of it?
