What a crock. If you really have no intention of going back you should keep the stools. They were given to you. I don't think they have any way to claim or prove that you "stole" them.
As of right now we're keeping them and not going back there. I honestly think Tony found out about it or something and Miguel just threw me under the bus so he didn't have to deal with it. Tony is never there and when he actually does show up, he and Miguel argue about stuff.
Besides the place being for sale on Craigslist, they have an actual listing for it on the Garden State MLS system. It's for sale for over 900k and has been up there for two years. I was under the impression that you'd also get possession of the two upstairs apartments if you bought it but I'm not totally sure. The value isn't too terrible considering the purchase price comes with the liquor license. But still.
We are doing the bar crawl on Friday and maybe we'll like a place enough to stay there. We definitely want to try Port 44. We haven't been to Scully's either. Hell's Kitchen is a good time but it gets VERY crowded. We shall see!
