How did you start bartending?
I was waiting tables at a local pub
when I was 17. When I turned 18, I
knew that I could legally start
bartending so I begged and pleaded
for them to teach me how. The week
of my 18th birthday, they threw me
behind the bar and the rest is
What do you like about
Other than the fast money, I would
have to say the variety of people
that I have met along the way. Some
of the craziest things that you will
see happen in bars/clubs!
What is the most annoying
thing a customer can do to a
Order a drink, and then walk away.
Another is to yell for me and when
I get there, not knowing what they
want. You can also serve someone
the same drink seven times in a row and
by the 7th time, he still does not
know what the cost is. There is
plenty but those are few off the
top of my head.
What do you like most about
Bar a, besides the money?
The comradery among employees at Bar
A is absolutely amazing. I’ve worked
at over a ˝ dozen bars and have
never and probably will never work
anywhere or for anyone and have such
a feeling of comfort, as I have
received and witnessed at Bar A. It
is unusual to have such a large
group of people enjoy each other’s
company as it is easily done at work
and play for the Bar A staff. This
is also attributed to the awesome
management staff, along with one of
the most respected and caring owners
in the industry. I can go on and on
and there is obviously a lot to like
about Bar A. These attributes of Bar
A almost makes the money secondary.
(Note: I agree-Dave)
What is your personal drink of
I drink Michelob Ultra, unless I’m
boozing, then it is Stoli’O, or Van
Gogh pineapple vodka & tonic.
What is the best shot that you
I usually get complimented on my
Tangs or Vanilla Cakes.
If you didn’t bartend, what
would be your job?
Who is your favorite DJ?
DJ Dave, of course.
What style of music do you
Everything but country.
Do you do the Electric Slide?
If I am drunk enough at a wedding,
I’ve been known to bust it out. I’ve
never actually remembered doing it
though. (Note: I’ve seen it and you
are probably better off not
When you think of the Cha Cha
Slide, what comes to mind?
I have no idea what that is.
Scottie is famous to us here
at MODERNDJ.COM for his “world
famous” Jack and Diet.
What is the secret behind the World
Lots and lots of Jack. (Note: Easy
