Pat Croce buys more bars

He's now up to six in Key West.

Pat Croce buys more bars


Why Pat Croce is feeling great today - playing off the title of one of the Philly entrepreneur's self-help books:

He has bought his fifth and sixth bars in his adopted town of Key West, Fla.

Croce, who in a former life ran the 76ers, founded Rum Barrel in 2006, shortly after opening Pirate Soul - the pirate museum. (He later moved Pirate Soul to St. Augustine, Fla.) Then came Island Dogs, Green Parrot, and Charlie Mac's.

In his latest move, on Dec. 20, he acquired Turtle Kraals and Half Shell Raw Bar, two mainstays in the Conch Republic.

Typical Croce: He says he'll replace the outdoor stage at Turtle Kraals with bocce courts.
