Behind-the-scenes drama from 'Bar Rescue' makeover on Glenwood South

Back in April, we wrote about Spike TV's "Bar Rescue" show coming to Raleigh to make over the Cashmere nightclub on Glenwood South (they also did a makeover of Characters Quarters in Garner, turning it into MoonRunners Saloon). What we didn't tell you about was all the drama going on behind the scenes, when the Cashmere (now Dual) bar owner had to fire his friend, who had previously been the manager of the club. Both men talked to us today about what went down in April and where things stand now. That episode of "Bar Rescue" is airing this Sunday at 9. (No word yet on when the Garner episode will air.)
