I'm hoping that this doesn't come across as shameless self-promotion, but I realize that it might. Anyways, the fact is that I'm just stoked. In addition to surfing, I've spent the last few years traveling around the world and across the country in what would amount to a grand beer tour, so this has been a long-time dream.

In any event, three weeks ago my wife, my business partner and I bought a pub/restaurant. It's been heaps of 16 hour days, but it's an absolute blast.

The point of this post is to say that if you have an ambition to do something, go for it. If you're looking to start your own business or buy an existing one, send me a PM and I'll tell you how we did it, and would be glad to assist in providing info on what it takes to start a company.

And... if you're looking for a place with tasty food, over 90 beers, and good sports on TV, come and say hi to me at Coasters Pub at the corner of A1A and Eau Gallie.

Too cool. Coasters is a great place. I've been frequenting that spot way back when it was Hubb's Pub. Good luck with it!

That's cool. Getting the dream job is definitely possible if you work hard enough for it.

What kind of food will you be serving?

Congrats Dude!

Shameless self promotion of this variety is not only appropriate, but appreciated.

I hope you'll find a way to put some authentic Aussie meat pies on the menu (different flavor every day would be awesome).

Ban the Fosters and stock up on VB!

Costa Rican "Imperial" is now available in Brevard (hint hint).

If you can top that with Costa Rican "Pilsen" and ceviche I'll be camping on the doorstep when you open.

Make sure one of those big TV's is dedicated to full-time surf-porn.

If you ran your own designated-driver taxi service for beachside residents at closing time, that might help draw even more people.

Best of luck; the wife and I will be in soon.

The 2nd-Light party night is a winner of an idea too.

sounds like a great place for everybody who bets somebody else a beer on the forum to cash in.

What is this beer stuff you are talking about and why have 90 types when you could have just one?
