The Cutie Behind the Bar
I’m finishing counting my money for the night shift at the restaurant, “The Perview”. It’s one of the last fancy restaurants in town, and it still is only open on weekends and closes at 9pm.

I contracted Covid-19 while bartending
I'd like to preface this and say I am NOT a doctor, or a scientist by any means. I listen to the CDC and my Dr. for advice as anyone should.

Bartending School - Is it worth it?
Making drinks has always been a big hobby of mine. I was a barista for a few years, and had experience both teaching and attending numerous coffee seminars.

God's Favorite Bar
It’s often said that bartenders are like cheap therapists, and most days that feels like the truth.
