1998, I was looking in the Want Ads for a bar for sale. I ran across an ad for
a bar in La Mesa. I remembered seeing the place while doing business at Drew
Ford, also located in La Mesa. The name of it was Scotty’s Pub. It was located
off the beaten path on 4th Street.
I made an
appointment with the seller to look at it. Man, it was pretty run down and old.
No matter, I loved the location in the village. The potential for expansion was
great, and the village itself was very intriguing. I fell in love with the
possibilities! I looked at it the first day and bought it the next. We opened
New Year’s Day 1999, and I will tell you that the people of La Mesa and the
city of La Mesa have been great to me ever since!
say, the rest is history
