Earnhardt Jr. To Open Charlotte Bar

NASCAR's Dale Earnhardt Junior is opening a bar in downtown Charlotte.

Whisky River is named for the bar at Earnhardt's house and will feature live music when it opens in December.

The bar won't have a racing theme, though. A news release says the business will look like a basement hangout with multiple TVs. It also will offer a mechanical bull and chicken wings.

Chris Epstein is working with Earnhardt, the majority owner of Whiskey River. Epstein says Earnhardt wants it to be a "cool place" where he can take his friends rather than a shrine to someone.
