Would you consider putting up $5k to buy a bar?

Would you consider putting up $5,000 to buy a bar? I'm thinking that we've got a great bunch of people in BOOZE CLUB - DC. What would happen if 50 of us put up $5,000 each (all equal members) and we purchased a bar? We could spend up to $200,000 cash for the place and still have $50,000 left over for operating expenses or improvements. We could improve the business and sell it, or simply keep it and get a good return on our investment. Hey, at $250,000, it would only have to produce $25,000 profit per year to yield 10% on our money. My guess is we could do better than that. What do you say? Oh, I forgot to mention that it would be mandatory for us to have an outside accounting firm chosen by the group and a management/bar staff chosen by the group as well.
