In this episode, we are joined in the Outback Studios once again by Tony Mannor, the proprietor of Finnegan's Irish Pub & Restaurant and Rebels Whiskeyhouse. This episode is the first of two parts of our interview with Tony.
Tony tells us how he came from a background in marketing, to opening a bar and eventually expanding by opening a second location, Rebels Whiskeyhouse. Tony shares with us how he was inspired by the love of his hometown to create a positive and safe environment for patrons of his business and his community.
Tony has garnered worldwide media attention for his social media guest list policy. Tony describes his guest list policy as "sort of a reservation program" and explains why and how it started.
Rebels Whiskeyhouse can be found at facebook.com/RebelsBBQ.
Finnegan's is located at 6002 Pacific Ave, and Rebels is at 6252 Pacific Ave, both in Stockton, CA 95207.
Come back tomorrow to listen to part two of our conversation with Tony.
