Buzzy's in the Beverage Journal

Recall my telling you about Bella's Liquors appearing in Proprietor Profile section of the August Beverage Journal (click here if you don't.)  Well guess who is profiled in the Journal's September issue?
Here is the article: (If you have trouble reading the excerpts as I have posted them below click here to go to article itself in the Journal and scroll down to page 46.)

My thanks to David Dent for suggesting to the Journal folks to feature me and Buzzy's.  My thanks also to author Teddy Durgin who did a great job in summarizing my tenure as owner of Buzzy's.  And thank you Natalie Grace for all of the great photo's.     

Song wise it reminded me of Ringo doing the Buck Owens tune about a guy who got some unexpected attention when all he had to do was act naturally.  (See if the bar tender in the video doesn't remind you a little of Buzzy.)
