PLOW’s new owner will continue to promote Fairhope’s home grown hot spot as originally intended

chrisplowChris Capps was just being inquisitive when he thought he would investigate businesses that were for sale in the area. This New Jersey guy migrated to Baldwin County in 2009 after living in Georgia, North Carolina and serving the the US Coast Guard. At one time he managed a bar in New York City and since then has always thought about owning such an establishment. Capps had never darkened the doors of PLOW before he started doing his research. When he finally did, he knew he loved the feel of this neighborhood watering hole.  After patronizing the bar as a customer for several months he then became an employee. Just a couple of weeks before all the papers were signed he made his reveal and announced his intentions of ownership before the official closing of the sale of the business. Chris is excited to have an opportunity to host a venue with such a warm feel and is always open to suggestions. He wants his customers to have a comfortable good time. The bar is fully stocked with all the essentials and they also have a premium wine selection to accommodate the wine lovers. It has always been and will continue to be a smoke free environment. The pool tables are just for fun and live music is on the schedule for every Friday and Saturday night. Thursday night is Ladies Night and there is a daily Happy Hour from 3pm until 7pm and all day on Sunday.  A Bloody Mary Bar is featured on Sundays with an early opening time of 11am. Plans also include a monthly comedy night and look for crawfish on Mondays when the season kicks in. For your viewing pleasure there are a multitude of televisions including one on the patio. Patrons can also enjoy a game of darts and Golden Tee. Chris updates the FaceBook page on a regular basis so be sure to follow them for additional specials and entertainment.

Daphne’s Record Bar renamed to pay tribute to two well loved Veterans

Mary Jansen and Kirstin SmithIn March of 2013 Mary Jansen and Kirstin Smith partnered and purchased the Record Bar on Highway 98 in Daphne. They have recently renamed the neighborhood establishment to honor two of their heroes Colonel John “Pete” Soukup and Lieutenant Mac Alsop, their fathers.Layout 1Kirstin met Mary 12 years ago and it was an instant friendship. When the opportunity arose for the two to become partners, it didn’t take too much persuasion. Although it seemed like a natural fit, the ladies wanted to make sure they could remain friends and business partners before they changed the name. They have celebrated much success and enjoyed the support of the locals over the past two years and look forward to being here for the long haul. Mac and Pete’s Record Bar is fully stocked and opens every day at 4pm with Happy Hour daily from until 7pm. They are located right next to Rosie’s Grill so food is not far away. They don’t even mind if you want to eat with them while you enjoy your favorite beer, wine or cocktail. You can belly on up to the bar, find a table, relax on one of their comfy couches or enjoy outdoor seating. They have an Internet golf game that is quite popular and juke box for your musical enjoyment when live entertainment is not scheduled. All are welcome at Mac and Pete’s and smoking is allowed. This article happens to release just before Veterans Day. Glasses will be raised as a tribute to two well loved Veterans that will always be remembered by these ladies and their families. A rededication is planned for January 2016. Mac and Pete’s, 1203 Highway 98, Suite 4E, Daphne (251) 621-8300 • Facebook  “Mac and Pete’s Record Bar”
