Never miss a local story.

How long have you been a bartender?
I’ve been a bartender for about 15 years now.
My very first job was at “Ross Dress for Less” when I was 15 years old.
Do you think the drinking age should be lowered?
I do not. Absolutely not.
Is there a reason?
Because 18-year-olds are annoying and awful people.
Friday Night Playlist?
Anything from Modest Mouse, Michael Jackson, always, and probably a little David Bowie.
Probably the Beatles.
How did you become a bartender?
I use to cocktail in Vegas, and I always wanted to bartend, because it looked way funner, and it is, so I just started doing that instead. I like slinging drinks.
Best tip you’ve ever gotten?

Probably margaritas, I really like doing passion fruit margaritas.
Favorite drink to consume?
Perks of being a bartender?
People give you lots of free drinks when you go out.
