OH, THAT’S GOOD!!!

The face I make when I sip a new beer and think, “That right there, might just be alright!”

YOUR DRINK CHOICE SCREAMS, YOU’RE A WUSSY!

If you are sitting at the bar with a gorgeous lady, and after you’ve ordered your drink, she immediately gets up and walks away. Here is the reason why…you ordered one of the drinks a man should never order. 1) Strawberry Daiquiri 2) Amaretto Sour 3) Midori Sour 4) Fuzzy Navel 5) Sex on the…

FLIRTATIOUS NON-TIPPERS REALLY BOTHER ME!!!

Flirtatious non-tippers really bother me! You know what, let me take that back because I don’t waste much time on them. However, it does make me wonder how their mind operates. For example, nothing puzzles me like a woman who doesn’t tip the bartender not one single dollar the entire night, but has the gall…

HAVE YOU EVER READ SYLVESTER STALLONE’S STORY???

On random, I read his story on Wikipedia and found out after watching a Muhammad Ali fight he was inspired to write “Rocky.” He went home and banged out the script in 20 very impressive hours!!! Then as an unknown writer got an offer for $350,000 for the script, but determined to be the main…

THE FIANCÈ HAS STRUCK AGAIN!!!

Oh yeah, she’s been upgraded from girlfriend to fiancè. Yesterday after my parents house, we decided to stop by Steak & Shake for a quick bite to eat. Btw, I ordered an extra side of fries and pictured below is what they gave me on the coffee saucer. What do I look like a freaking…

NOT DRINKING AGAIN UNTIL THE JOB IS DONE!!!

A lot of you know that one of my goals for this year is to open a bartending school. For the most part, I’ve put all the pieces of the puzzle together. I’ve accumulated just about all the equipment needed, a general contractor for the buildout, a curriculum and textbook that I developed, and I’m…

DUMB LOOKS ARE FREE!!!

Customer: Bartender, let me get a vodka and cranberry, vodka & pineapple, and a vodka on the rocks. Me: Cool. I make all three drinks and place them in front of the customer. Me: It’s going to be $21. Customer: Okay. Which one is the vodka and cranberry??? Me: 😳

IT’S ALL MY FAULT!!!

My girlfriend and I have been together for about two years now. Within that time her taste in spirits has definitely elevated. She’s probably going to kill me for this, but she has gone from Arbor Mist and cheap vodka, to wine from Alsace, France and Woodford Reserve bourbon! Her dad even compliments her on…

POOR TIPPERS AND REALITY!!!

One of my sisters in the service industry, Ashley W., uploaded a post (on Facebook) yesterday of an article that an aspiring graduate student wrote. (pictured below.) It ignited a flurry of comments on Ashley’s page about when it is appropriate not to tip. Most people (the ones who probably didn’t have enough to tip…

DID YOU REALLY JUST SAY THAT SHIT TO ME?

CUSTOMER: Alex, I’m ready to tab out. He hands me his bank card and places some cash on the bar. He points at the cash and says: CUSTOMER: The cash is your tip, put the bill on my card. I pick up the cash without looking at it (because it’s rude to count your tips…
