You never wish bad things on people, even the ones you can't stand, and especially when it comes to financial endeavors. Two of Joe Buck's aptly named J Buck's restaurants are reportedly closing their doors in Missouri and the original in downtown St. Louis could be next. Via Sports by Brooks....
The J. Buck’s restaurants at West County Center in Des Peres, Mo., and in Springfield, Mo., closed last week, and the O’Fallon, Mo., location might soon be taking on another name. The downtown and Clayton locations of J. Buck’s continue to operate under new ownership. In October, Bodley Buck LLC, a new company formed by investors including broadcasters and siblings Joe and Julie Buck, announced it would take over two J. Buck’s locations, in Clayton and downtown St. Louis.Now if this was his broadcasting career and/or talk show, I might be a little more giddy, but when it comes to matters of the wallet....I feel for the guy. Hopefully the others can survive, and one day when this is all said and done, I can have a beer with the man. I've heard he's fun to hang out with!
The Bucks had not previously invested in the restaurants.
