What's the worst date you've ever witnessed?
I bartended a high school reunion and about an hour into it, a young woman was already wasted. Her boyfriend who didn't know anyone had to basically baby sit her all night. She kept falling down. She was also talking to everyone and dancing. Her boyfriend looked mortified, I could tell he was embarrassed.
When do things start heating up here?
This is a brand-new business, so it's been up and down, but we have been packed during snow storms. We are located on Main Street right before the bridge, so we get a lot of traffic. It's been our thing though, people come out and congregate right before, during and after snow storms, especially the plowers, the friends of the plowers and the girlfriends of the plowers.
Do people drink more liquor when the weather gets frigid like this?
I know I would rather. Yes I think it's easier to warm up with liquor. The shot of choice here I would say is blackberry Brandy.
What cocktail should be more popular than it is?
Jameson and ginger ale, that's my go to. I'm Irish so I love Jameson. It's delicious and it gives you a buzz. I definitely think it's under appreciated.
