I was just hired as a bartender here and this is will silence all the gossip. NO. It is not going to be another Hooters, or Canz, or some place where girls with small self esteem and equally as opposing busts go to work. This is going to be one hell of a sports bar. 80 beers on tap, 60 TVs, it is the real deal. And if you still need affirmation, the uniform for guys AND girls are jeans and a crew shirt they are giving us. Yes this bar will be in the same restaurant family as Hooters, but just because it is in the same family doesn't mean it will be the same. Chipotle is owned by McDonalds and, though it may not be the best analogy, they (Chipotle and McDonalds) are no where near the same quality or same neighborhood of food. I hope that is post will help any insight into the future of Buds Ale House and that you all at least give it one try and stop in and see what it is all about before deeming it a black spot in Astoria. The people running really have their act together, they know what it takes to put up a good restaurant. I hope to see you all there.
