How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "Myself and my business partner have thought about starting our own business for several months now, and we finally decided on a concept and just decided to start it. We were not expecting it to take off as fast as it did, but over the past month, we have managed to sign six different bars, playing five nights per week, which works out to 14 games per week in Washington and Frederick counties. We are sponsored by Rolling Rock, Woodgamz and BJ's Embroidery Shop."
