It befuddles me how many people post on Covers about opening up a restaurant, yet don't realize how much of a money pit it usually becomes.

Honestly I never planned on doing anything in the restruant buisness but an older friend of mine who has plenty of $ is wanting to open a bar in an oil boom town. And he wants me to invest some in it and help him out getting it set up to attract a younger crowd and find bands and stuff to play in it... That's the only reason I'm considering it. Every restruant and bar are packed everynight here.

thats usually the trick. you gotta work hard at figuring out which one could be bouncing up though. dont pick a company that is due to belly up.

when the oil spill in the gulf happened u couldve snap'd it up and  the carnival cruise liner fiasco too. good for a few jumps.


hmmm i'd bet on kentucky taking it all the way. not sure if u are getting even money but i'd put 1-2 k down if i  had 50k.

I'd call my brother and law and a few friends I used to work with on the trading desk to keep an eye out on some sure things and then i'd sit n wait until i could make a few option plays.
