Dirty bathrooms, awful service, high prices: all common ways to kill business. Having a political meltdown on Facebook, though, is easily the most entertaining.
So late last night (Monday), the owner of the newly opened Zio Carlo Brew Pub on the Near South Side was having a cocktail (or 12) at the nearby Chat Room Pub when he decided to go online on one of Le Chat’s handy computer machines and complain about sharing company with “spoiled Obama kids.” No, not Malia and Sasha, but, y’know, all of the 99 percenters in town, to whom the Near South Side serves as one of only a few 99-percent-friendly enclaves. Hilarity –– um, I mean, “Social suicide” –– ensues.
As you can see in the image below, a screenshot of the entire thread (courtesy of Josh Burk), Mr. Zio Carlo (a.k.a. Carlo Galotto) –– like honey badger –– don’t give a shit. As a student of offensive behavior, I applaud the old man’s ballsiness. Last I checked, America was a free country, and you could talk about anything you damn well pleased. Will I be hanging out at Zio Carlo’s anytime soon? Hahaha. That’s a negatory, ghost rider. I’ll be more than happy to throw my hard-earned money at the owners of the Chat, a.k.a. “the worst place in Fort Worth.”
