Practical Exercise

The lovely Humuhumu and charming Trott were kind enough to drop by this evening to sample some cocktails tolerate my exercise in craziness.

By way of explanation, I’ll start the story.

When bartenders find out I’m the Savoy guy, the first thing they typically ask is, “Have you ever worked as a bartender?”

The answer is, no, I’ve never worked behind the bar.

I worked in food service for about 10 years, when I was younger, but never as a bartender. Strictly a back of house kind of guy. Dish washer, prep cook, line cook, kitchen manager, etc. Never a waiter or bartender.

These days I have a full time job, am nearing middle age, and am not really sure I want to start slogging away at night as a drink maker.

But a couple of my acquaintances in New York, let’s call them johnder and donbert, are full time tech workers like myself and, the over achieving bastards, are also working as bartenders a few nights a week.

So inevitably the question now comes up, when are you going to be like johnder and donbert?
