"I never even worked in a restaurant before I opened Brucie. Part of that has worked to my advantage and part has been a struggle. Everything is heartfelt, I wanted to open a place where I can do anything I wanted." [13:00]

"The beers that are marketed to women are Bud Light lime and all the flavored beers.. if it's a regular beer, they're using women to market it." [32:00]
