HOLIDAY 2014 - COVER FEATURE SALOON ON CALHOUN WITH BACON Somewhere Fun to Go with Something Fun to Do Every Day! PROVIDING: “Live entertainment, fun times, exceptional food, a huge beer selection, a friendly neighborhood “Cheers” establishment.” OPENED: “Originally opened as Saloon on Calhoun in January 2009 under different ownership. When I took over 9/21/11 I added “with Bacon” because everything is better with bacon! We started serving free bacon during weekday happy hour, and that began Saloon’s successful turn-around.” ABOUT: “Being a financial adviser for the last 20 years I wanted to take my business experience and diversify my business outreach into the service industry. I felt that Brookfield lacked a fun, event-filled local pub and grill. The large lit parking lot and no neighbors to disturb made Saloon’s “difficult to find” location in the US Bank parking lot ideal for live entertainment and potential growth.” INSPIRATION: “ I have always loved hosting parties and making sure everyone has fun. As far back as I can remember my cousin Mike and I talked about owning a bar, so when the opportunity presented itself to make those dreams come true I jumped in. My experience is in finance, but Saloon had two exceptional employees when I took over who committed to teach me the service industry. Louie Brouwer continued on as head bartender, and Jennine Paoli agreed to being my GM. We would not have had the growth and success we have if not for the solid foundation of these two incredible people and all they bring to Saloon’s appeal! Our collective mission is to make sure people leave feeling great about their experience at Saloon!” NOT TO MISS: “Free Bacon Happy Hour with $1 OFF all drinks weekdays 4-7pm, Our house-made bacon-infused-vodka Bloody Mary’s, Our LIVE MUSIC every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
