The Magical Liquid

Now being a bartender has allowed me the opportunity to take excessive amounts of time off to do some much needed traveling. Simply ask and you shall receive, management can always find someone to cover shifts. That's the beauty of the industry, plenty of bodies to fill in. Just make sure you bring something back as a thank you for not giving your shifts away permanently. The Caribbean is definitely my favorite place with it's "overproof" rum, this stuff is great in any cocktail or alone on the rocks. And, since being in the nite life we like to spend our vacations out in the sun on...

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Ahh Sunday, the day for resting. A day to sit back relax, and reflect on the madness that transpired this last week at the bar. Sunday's are generally the slowest of days in the "service" industry. I use the term "service" as an attempt to be politically correct. However, we all know what I am, and that is and always will be a bartender. To lump bartenders, waitresses and waiters into one catagory just seems wrong. Now where was I. That's right, Sunday's. Being a slower day gives us a little more time to converse with the masses that come out to enjoy some solitude. Actually it's usually...

The Drink Guy

What say we start this off right by doing what we've all done to get past a line up, not pay a cover charge or were a little under-age; and that's sneak in the back door. My editor, the lovely Lynn, who also happens to be our sites advice columnist and life coach will definitely have something to say about this! However, as  “mixologists”; we bartenders have been known to bend the rules a little, and I ain't about to stop now. I can hear her now, and believe me I've been called a few choice names in the past, and picked up a few nicknames along the way. I will explain at a...

At the Bar at Affiliate Summit

Recently I attended an conference in Las Vegas, yah I know conference in Las Vegas is an oxymoron, but I had a great time. So you are asking what this has to do with the drink guy concept. The point is I spent an evening with a successful internet marketer that turned out to be a person who likes beer. I like beer. So we had fun. If you are interested in her review of the affiliate summit conference in Las Vegas you can read it here. I told her I was a beer connoisseur and alas I was pounding back Miller Genuine Draft.  She called me on it.  So I switched to Newcastle Brown Ale, or as my...
