Who Do They Think They Are?

An interesting point was brought up yesterday that I also agree with. Why do some bartenders out there think they are gods? Bartenders make drinks, not miracles.

I have had my fair of "fans" over the years. I appreciate people out there who enjoy the drinks I make and get excited when I make something special just for them. I don't look at bartending as a popularity contest or use it as my dating pool. It just happens to be a really fun way to make a living.

I would also never refer to myself as a mixoligist. I'm just a bartender. No one ever says "Hey Mixologist!"

I try to keep it real dawg.

oh I hate that. Bartenders are cool and you get to work at great places. But customer service is what makes bartenders awesome.

Customer service is how bartenders pay the rent. People don't HAVE to tip. It always boggles my mind that some bartenders out there can't seem to wrap their head around that concept.

But you have a blog, which is the first step to mixologist startdom...

If I was seeking mixologist stardom, I wouldn't be writing under a pen name...

I mainly keep the blog to vent.
