Different customers require different service
"Your business lunch guys are drinking Arnold Palmers in ties and sitting at the bar. They want to get in and get out. Get the food in and get those guys out of there. The older couple having a drink wants to talk your ear off -- they want to know what you're doing, why you bartend. You've got girls in front of you who want to flirt and have fun. You've got a couple of buddies who just want to watch the game and talk sports.
"Basically, you have to adapt your bartending style for who you're taking care of."
It's the best job in the world
"Bartenders should enjoy their jobs. We're talking spirits, beer and wine, cocktails, and sports. There's a certain kind of demeanor that bartenders get afforded that other people don't. We get to curse and tell [guests] dirty jokes and talk about sex, and all these things that people in other fields don't really get to. Even in service, if you're working on tables, it's a different feeling. You don't have that shared communal feeling you have between a bartender and a guest at a bar."
