Put 'em up

Two Albany restaurant/club owners -- John DeJohn and Joe Schaefer -- are going to settle their differences in a boxing match -- or as Steve describes it: "a sanctioned opportunity to express their dislike for each other."

-Angelina Jolie filming a movie here?
-Joe Bruno conviction?
-New convention center?
-Zombie (and mummy) outbreaks?

NONE of these things will do more to bring the fame and notoriety that the Capital District is so sorely lacking than these two local bar owners pummeling each other in the chubs!

And I'm putting out the plea directly to Matt Baumgartner to simulcast this thing down at the Biergarten.

Finally, a good healthy way for two adults to settle their differences! None of this passive aggressive bs! :) fully active aggressive! =D

I doesn't even know what to say. This fills me simultaneously with disgust and mirth.
As a Center Square resident, I am a frequent patron of DeJohn's and Justin's (not so much Legends), and I love the food and ambiance of both places. Not to mention, I had my wedding reception in the DeJohn's banquet room. John DeJohn was professional and accommodating throughout the experience, and we had a great reception. It's disappointing to think that these could be his true colors.

After reading this I will do my best not to patronize any of these establishments. These are supposed to be adults and business owners? They could at least make it for charity, terribly immature behavior.

How can I tell children to grow up and settle their differences with words when adults, possibly even respected business men in the community resort to fists?

I am so very thankful for the wonderful people who wandered in and out of my life over the last few years. They have given me the love and support I need to survive and thrive. Last year at this time I was at my lowest. By the grace of all that is good in my life, I have climbed out and I'm happier than I've been in a very, very long time.
