  1. Like we don’t have enough bars in El Paso. Every day drunk drivers are wrecking havoc on city streets and highways. Hit and runs, DUI’s, and vehicular homicides occurring sometimes on a daily basis. I wish Aaron Jones well in his endeavor, but I wish she would try to do something other than promote the sale of alcohol.

    1. I agree about the whole alcohol thing. I haven’t used it since college (1983) and have zero regrets. Generally when sports stars do this they are just an investor. Someone else plays owner and management. ie Brett Favres Steakhouse, Mike Ditkas….etc.

      But all that aside I hope this works out…Aaron is a super guy and awesome El Pasoan. GO PACK!

      1. I hope it works out for him. I myself, don’t go to bars. There is always a chance that I would run into a former, shall we say…”client”.
