What do you enjoy about bartending?
Having two kids, this gives me the opportunity to stay at home with them during the day, and then come in here a few nights a week and keep my sanity, believe it or not.
What's the biggest perk?
Here, I get to see a different band every night of the week. For instance, tonight, the bar I'm working at is right in front of the band. It's cool.
Do you see a lot of the same faces from having worked at other Easton-area bars?
Absolutely. My regulars were guests at my wedding, and they come here. They'll follow you if you're worth it, I suppose.
What makes a bartender worth it?
People like to be remembered. People love it if they come in and you remember what they drink or any little bit that you've talked about.
Do you have any good stories from behind the bar?
Our clientele is typically [in their] late twenties to early fifties, so if you can imagine that age group really getting down on the weekends and pulling out all their best dance moves. I've seen somebody probably pull some muscles - really try to pull off some moves that should have been left when the song originally came out. It's great. I've never been good about not laughing at things like that.
What do you think you'd be doing if you weren't bartending?
My dream job would be food critic.
