Yankees fan Lawrence Blatterfein has been trying to open a bar in New Brunswick for years, but the area didn’t want him. Unusual? Perhaps.
It may just be a matter of taste, and favorite sports teams. The name of the bar? Buck Foston.
NJ.com reported that a federal jury awarded Blatterfein more than $1.5 million in his lawsuit over the name of his bar. According to Blatterfein, New Brunswick Mayor James Cahill was responsible for the city council’s rejection of his liquor license.
Cahill is a dedicated fan of the Boston Red Sox.
