“Bachelor Pad 3’s” Chris Bukowski Plans a Washington Bar and Restaurant

Bachelor Pad 3 fans—and as everyone knows, they are legion—will be happy to learn that cast member Chris Bukowski has not only moved to Maryland, he also plans to open a restaurant and bar in the Washington area. As Eater DC reported yesterday, Bukowski—no relation, that we know of, to the brilliant, booze-fueled writer Charles—is partnering with several other Bachelorette vets on the “ladies style” sports bar. Surely, this merits an ABC spinoff called Life After Bachelor Pad 3, the Bachelor, and/or the Bachelorette—awkward title notwithstanding.

Bukowski is waiting to talk details until Monday evening, when he’ll co-host a BP3 finale screening at Sugo Cichetti in Potomac. It seems that talented Sugo/Cava chef Dimitri Moshovitis will be creating the “bar-themed menu” for Bukowski's new venture, the reality star’s first restaurant endeavor.

The event takes place at 7 PM on Monday. Moshovitis will be offering samples of some of his new fall menu items, as well as desserts to celebrate Bukowski’s 26th birthday. Need more motivation to take on I-270 on a Monday evening? Consider this tantalizing tidbit from the press release: “There will also be a special appearance by Super Fan Paige Vigil of Bachelor Pad 3.”

    JLS, let's go to the bar together. All the cast members keep in touch and hang out -- maybe someone cool will show up.

    JLS: I'm not an avid viewer of this particular program, but I did watch some clips this morning and my understanding was that being a "lying, manipulating dbag" was sort of the point?

    "bachelor pad 3 fans will be happy to learn"????? Does the author of this article even watch bachelor pad??? Chris seemed like a great guy on the bachelor but revealed himself as nothing but a lying, manipulating dbag on bachelor pad, who is basically this season's villain. The bar sounds like a cool concept, it's just too bad that such a skeezy human being is the one opening it :P
