They should have done something like this.

Jason and Joy have a winner!  Great place and great hosts!
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Agreed BT. Jason has some other things he wants to do as well. I hope that the success he has seen with Dos Gatos is enough to push him to act on them.

Nice work Jason and Joy, and big Kudos to your Wait-staff as well.

The place is across from the Florida Theatre. It is an awesome place, with excellent service.

What kind of exterior signage do they have?

None at this time... Jason told me he is going with a classic neon "Cocktails" sign hanging over the sidewalk...

Did Bos just suggest that they should have mimicked the decor of Bennagins, Serejevo?

Here's wishing prosperity to such a lovely establishment as Dos Gatos!

I've GOT to get by and try Jason's Sazerac!  Had a chance to buy that building at a bargain price many years ago and have always regretted not doing it.
When all else fails hug the dog.

The bartenders there are awesome!  It's sad, but this is the first place near the core where I have seen any flair bartending.  I am still working on some of the bottle opening flair tricks I saw when I was there.  Drinks are great, fairly priced, and atmosphere is very cozy.

I've heard good things about the place. Looking forward to grabbing a beer there. Speaking of beer, whats on tap? Any Bold City beers?
