‘If I Owed $300,000, I’d Learn to Make a Drink’ 😱 Bar Rescue S7 Sneak Peek
Aren’t they all supposed
to be one color? One side shouldn’t
be darker than the other,
now should it, Chef? That could be the frostbit
part of the chicken burning quicker
than the rest of the bird. Jon, just looking at this,
there’s not a leader. There’s not a manager.
There’s nobody teaching them. This is kind of like,
“Shit, they’re not gonna notice.
Send it out anyways, right?” Look at the pull.
Look at the pull. – How is she eating that?
– Oh! Jon: Look at the long chew.
Still chewing. – It’s not a bubblegum
– Still chewing. We should have had a swallow
if it was a decent wing. No swallow. Still chewing. Then the forced swallow. – ( gulps )
– Ugh. I don’t have to
taste that chicken wing
to know it sucks. There’s the Berg system,
which we have in Utah. Now, that Berg measures
an ounce and a half. Now look at our cocktail. You got an ounce and a half
of liquor and about 28 ounces of mix.
How does that work for you, Rob? Terrible! I mean,
you get so filled up on all those mixes.
It’s terrible. Narrator:
Due to Utah’s strict
alcohol lawsonly allowing 1.5 ounces
of any given spirit per drink,making a cocktail
in the wrong glasswill require more liquid
to fill it to the top,thus diluting the flavor and
lessening the drink’s quality.Jon:
It makes absolutely no sense. Why use a glass
that you don’t fill? – Right.
– I don’t know. So, guys, this is a big bar. We’ve seen that their food
isn’t quite up to snuff. – Right.
– We’re not sure they know
how to cook properly. – Their drinks are awful.
We can see that.
– Yeah. There’s a lack of training. We don’t see Bill
engaged at all. But we can’t see much more. This place is so big
and there’s only, like, five customers in there. So I did something tonight
for recon, guys. I got 50 people for recon. Fifty. ( indistinct chatter ) I want to see what Bill does. Does Bill move quick
when a bar is busy? – Does he interact with
his kitchen when it’s busy?
– Sure. Does he check his ticket times? Is Bill in fact engaged
in this operation? – I want to see if Bill jumps
behind the bar, don’t you?
– Yeah, absolutely. She waited a long time
and didn’t even get food.
That bugs me. Jon:I’d like
the two of you guysto go up to the front
of that line…– Is everybody thirsty?
– ( all shouting )…and walk all those
50 people in.So what I’m gonna do
is I’m gonna give you
guys earpieces.Rob, if you can hear me,
touch your nose. T-Bear, do we have anybody
working the door? Oh, my God.
Now I have to go
down here for ice! The bartender’s already
getting mad right now. ( bleep ), ( bleep ).
Jesus Christ. Raise your hand and sort of ask
for a drink aggressively,
if you don’t mind. Can we get two bottles?
Can we get two– This guy is such
an ass( bleep ). – I need the screwdriver.
– Can we get a beer here? – Yeah.
– Yeah. Give me one second,
I’ll ( bleep ) stuff your face. So instead of getting a beer,
they both walk in the back? – Can you do a mule? Okay.
– Yeah, what kind? – Like, a whiskey mule?
– Sure. – What’s up, Bill?
– Where’s my hug?
We’re good, we’re good. – Good seeing you, brother.
– Look at this. Oh, look at manager boy.
Our boy is over here
is hugging people, but he’s not helping the bar. T-Bear!
I need raspberry vodka. – You’re hugging people,
can I hug you?
– ( muttering ) I don’t see you doing
anything else, so I might
as well hug you. Yeah, well, yeah. – Is this your–
– This is mine. I’m Bill. – Bill? Owner?
– Yeah. Nice meeting you. Hey, I’m Rob.
So this is yours? Yes.
Well, it owns me right now. Because you have
a lot of people that
are waiting on drinks. – Can you make drinks?
– Could you make drinks? – I can make shots.
– So you don’t know how
to make drinks? – You don’t know
how to make drinks?
– I’m very ill– ill-prepared
for behind the bar. Rob:You’re ill-prepared
for behind the bar?– But you own the bar
and you can’t make drinks.
– Yes. – I can make some drinks.
– How long have you
owned the bar? – Two years.
– When do you think it’s time
to learn to make drinks? Do you think it’s time
that you maybe learned
to make drinks? – Probably. Yeah.
– How do you manage cocktails if you don’t know
how to make them? Well, um, I’ve relied on
the expertise of other people. No, I am, uh, I–
one of the reasons– – Was that bad?
– Sorry, go ahead. – Ugh.
– Rob:With no expertise,
this drink sucks.It’s my problem, I get it. Well, if it’s all
because of Bill, I’m gonna talk to Bill. I’m gonna go check the kitchen
’cause that tastes like shit. – Damn.
– ( crowd cheers ) – Hello, Mr. Taffer.
– Hi, Bill. I have a guy in here
who’s apparently a nice guy. – Yes.
– But you’re not a nice guy when you take $300,000
from your in-laws and do nothing to pay it back! – That’s fair. That’s fair.
– Are you? If I owed my in-laws $300,000, I’d learn how to make
a ( bleep ) drink. – Yes. That’s fair.
– How come you didn’t? – I have no ( bleep ) excuse.
– None whatsoever. – So are you a failure?
– No. – Well, you’re failing here.
– That’s why I called you guys. Oh, so I’m supposed
to solve your problem that for two years you didn’t
learn a fricking thing? – I need a direction.
That’s what I need.
– You need a direction? Here’s your direction.
