Should I open a bar? (real)

Ringo has it right. You need to work AS A MANAGER of someone else’s bar for a few years, I’d say, to understand the ways that you could get good and screwed over before you even consider opening up a place of your own. More likely IMO (I’ve owned a restaurant in lower Manhattan) is you’ll decide that there are much easier ways of earning a living, (and your capital will be intact if you take this course.)
