It's been a great year for Jon Taffer and the whole team over at Bar Rescue. They helped save a number of bars, and especially one that was affected by Hurricane Sandy. In doing so, he helped improve the lives of the owners, the staff, and their corresponding families.
We all know that Jon Taffer has his own very special "motivational techniques." When he feels that an owner is failing his staff, or vice versa, it often results in Taffer getting real and letting everybody with a stake in that particular establishment know exactly how he feels. Without further ado, the Best Taffer Moments of the Year:
FIGHT IN THE KITCHENIn Kansas City, things heat up in the kitchen when a cook feels disrespected. The resulting fracas is a classic example of Taffer setting everybody straight.
NOBODY EATSIf toxic black mold were to develop in thie kitchen, it could be lethal. When Jon finds a full grown fungus in the walk-in fridge, all bets are off.
IS THAT A BLOW-UP DOLL?The only thing worse then thieving bartenders are moronic ones. During this episode, Jon Taffer had to deal with the latter, and it threw him into a rage.
WHY ARE THESE MATCHES BEHIND THE BAR?Jon gave the owner of this bar one task, to throw out matches that were a huge liability. When he finds them hidden behind the bar, he goes off.
OWNER IN A DRUNKEN STUPORIn Las Vegas, Jon confronts an owner who is too drunk to care that his business is going under.
BAR OWNER HITS ON NICOLE TAFFERWhen an owner hits on Jon's wife and makes lewd comments, Jon goes in and sets him straight.
With any luck, we can look forward to seeing a whole lot more of this in 2014. Happy New Year everybody!
