"Cheapshot's" The Bar

In February, 2007, Cheapshot, along with his brother Jordan Fisher, opened a bar, called Cheapshot's. It was a life-long dream of the both of them to open a bar, and after several years of successful investment by Jordan, they both purchased a 2,200-square-foot (200 m2) building. After renovating it, they opened it for a test-run in May 2007. It was a success, and is now officially open. The bar has an exclusive collection of signature drinks, including the Ryu Shot, which is a reference to Cheapshot's fellow band-mate, Ryu Maginn, and a Cheapshot Mojito, named after Cheapshot himself.
