Local Girl We Love, and Where to Meet Her
This is Kate Bolton, cocktail program consultant at Novela and bar manager/partner at Maven, where you can usually find her slinging any of the creations she personally helped concoct.
Why We Love Her: 1) See above (seriously), 2) growing up she used to be a professional dancer (no, not that kind) and along with teaching classes, used to dance with a 1940s band, and 3) she's an avid snowboarder, so if you can't find her at a bar in the Wintertime, you can probably find her in Tahoe... where she will likely be weirded out you found her in Tahoe.
Best Way to Get Her Attention at the Bar: "I try to be pretty diplomatic, but a good way to NOT get my attention is by waving, snapping, or pounding the bartop."
Relation to Michael: "None, sadly... though I can definitely relate to Michael Bolton from Office Space."
