When El Matador opened in 1958, Bennett Cerf called it "the most attractive room in America". Part saloon, part salon, Barnaby Conrad's nightclub was nestled in the heart of San Francisco's cabaret and nightlife district. On any given night, one might find Noel Coward, Marilyn Monroe, Truman Capote, Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, or Tyrone Power in the club, or might hear Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Eva Gabor, George Shearing, or André Previn take over the piano. In Name Dropping, Barnaby Conrad vibrantly evokes this bygone era. Charming, personable, and witty, the author is both celebrity and fan as he shares vivid, hilarious, and surprising anecdotes, delightfully dropping famous names all the while. 1. Language: English.

Working both downtown and on the Sunset Strip, he is thrust into the bloodstream of L.A.

According to Statista, sales in the drinking sector in the US have steadily grown since the mid-1990s, reaching $23.15 billion in 2015. The sector includes bars, pubs, lounges, taverns, and nightclubs, as well as other drinking places that primarily sell alcoholic beverages for immediate consumption. The National Restaurant Association estimated that food and drink sales in US bars and taverns would reach $19.9 billion in 2016. This is a relatively small figure in comparison to the wider restaurant industry, for which food and drink sales were expected to rise to approximately $783 billion during the same year.As a smart and savvy business person, I am sure you can understand we all want to be a part of an industry that shows growth and not decline. What better industries to be a part of than this? Especially when this sector has shown steady growth year over year for decades.If you are not 100 percent convinced yet, here is little more of the truth from Investopedia. The bar, tavern, and nightclub industry in the US is expected to have total revenues greater than $24 billion in 2015. Of the total sales, 42 percent is made up of beer, 31 percent is made up of distilled beverages, and the remaining 27 percent is made up of food and other sales. The average revenue per employee for a bar establishment is roughly $64, making it an attractive business for an entrepreneur.I am sure by now you would agree that getting into this line of business can be a great idea. But just because it is a great idea doesn’t mean everyone has to open one of these, right? Well, true. But you have to also understand; not everyone is cut out for owning and operating such business establishments. It takes a certain type of personality and willingness to own and operate and see great success in this business.Here is what I show you in this audiobook:Who should open a bar and whyProfitability of a bar businessSix ways to find 1.

Eco-Breeder or Satan’s Scientist? A nightclub fire claims 53 lives, including that of Dr. Hannah Strindberg, a scientist who runs the secretive Breedhaven project on a remote island near the US-Canada international border. The nightclub fire proves to be arson. US Fish and Wildlife Undercover Agent Venus Diamond suspects the target was Dr. Strindberg. Strindberg's breakthrough work in the harvesting, freezing, and cloning of embryos of endangered species has earned the admiration of her benefactors, and the ire of more than a few detractors. Would the arsonist strike again, perhaps next time setting fire to Dr. Strindberg's private habitat on Helix Island, the paradise where the murdered scientist rescued species that even now thrive and multiply? The controversial Breedhaven project has many detractors; its vision of saving endangered species seems foolhardy, even perhaps "tinkering with God’s Plan", at least in the minds of Dr. Strindberg’s enemies. Is an angry proponent of "Intelligent Design" behind the murder of Dr. Strindberg and the other nightclub arson victims? Dr. Strindberg’s valuable lifesaving work may well continue…but only if Venus accepts an adventure that will alter her life - personal and professional - and not before the murderer strikes again. 1.
