That’s right; Jared Allen — aka the One Man Gang, aka Kansas City‘s favorite son — is opening a sports bar. I don’t care what the Kansas City Star says, this is an exteremly strong indicator that he plans on sticking around for the long term, and end up a career Chief. Here’s more about Jared Allen Sports Arena & Grill:
Defensive end and National Football League sack leader Jared Allen plans to be connected to Kansas City for the long term.
Maybe not through the Chiefs — his contract is up at the end of February, though the team may slap the franchise tag to retain him — but at least through his personal ties here and a new 11,000-square-foot sports bar west of downtown that will bear his name.
Jared Allen Sports Arena & Grill is scheduled to open March 7 at 700 Southwest Blvd., with 17 42-inch plasma TVs, a game room, a dance club, an outdoor rooftop deck and a street-level patio.
I can’t wait to hit up the joint myself! Sounds like a hit.
