Fantasy sports bar to open??

At the end of 2006, Adrian Glass quit his job with a large accounting firm to pursue a dream he spent several years shaping. And now he's betting on armchair sports junkies to make his fantasy come true.

He and his business partners are planning to launch The Post, in Maplewood — a bar designed for fantasy sports enthusiasts.


Think this concept could be successful?

Are you implying that one Ms Jennifer Winterrose is not female? Surely she is and surely she's supermodel hot.

It's a decent concept but what would be so different about the bar? During football season, I see guys with laptops at the local sports bars.

Offering high speed Wifi is pretty pointless since a lot of people have access with their cell phones.

Restaurants are a fickle business and even if you have an awesome concept, you have no idea how well something like this will do until it starts to operate.

Going back to my costume party, maybe I'll see Ms Winterrose there. See you later, suckers!

That costume picture is very, very, very disturbing.

So it is sports bar with computers? I guess I don't see what is so revolutionary.
