The Piratz Tavern-Corporate Bar & Grill-Piratz Tavern story is clearly the frontrunner for Silver Spring Story of the Year honors, and now we'll finally get to see the episode of Bar Rescue that precipitated all the drama.
From SpikeTV's press release:
The debut episode features Taffer and his crew of experts trying to save the Piratz Tavern in Silver Spring, MD from sinking. Opened with the intention of providing its patrons an escape from reality, the employees at Piratz Tavern have begun to take its theme too seriously – a waiter even lost an eye during a swordfight with a fellow employee. Years of mismanagement have cost owner Tracy Rebelo her life savings, and she and her daughter have been forced to move into her parents’ basement. To dig herself out of her financial hole, Taffer must find a way to convince Rebelo to abandon the theme she holds so dear in order to appeal to the neighborhood’s primarily corporate clientele.Highlight: They didn't write "Silver Springs".
