Rock star ALICE COOPER's new sports bar, called "Alice Cooper'stown," will open in downtown Phoenix this week, according to Martha Netherton of the PHOENIX BUSINESS JOURNAL. Cooper: "It will be the Taj Mahal of sports bars." The restaurant's theme will feature baseball and other professional sports, and if successful, the concept will spread to other major league cities. Cooper is teaming with AZ entrepreneur Brian Weymouth on the project. If the sports bar concept is "successful," the partners would like to "spread to other" MLB cities such as Cleveland, Seattle, Denver and Detroit. Weymouth said that it's likely another deal will be inked in Cleveland or Detroit "by next spring" (Martha Netherton, PHOENIX BUSINESS JOURNAL, 11/17 issue).
