Years Bartending: On and Off for 8 years
Where You Work: Shadow Room (www.shadowroom.com)
Your signature drink: Water Moccasin
One thing you wished every patron knew when coming to order: This can be a long list but I'll keep it simple. 1. Asking for less ice doesn't mean you'll get more liquor. The shot count will still be the same! 2. I promise I'm not trying to ignore you, I'm just waiting on the 10 other people yelling at me for attention at the bar, 3. TIP YOUR BARTENDERS! You take care of us, we take care of you!
Worst pickup line you've heard: There are many of those...."I just called my mom and told her I found the love of my life"
Best night you've ever had: Sounds really cheesy but the night Steve (the owner) told me he trusts me as his head bartender. It's hard to trust people in this industry so that means a lot. Well, and nights when people throw you a hundred here and there for just being pleasant to them...Those aren't bad :-)
One thing about you that no one would expect: I have an undergrad degree in sports medicine, a masters degree in sports management and I speak three languages.
