Home Sweet Home

Just got back home to Madison, WI, after three days in Omaha, NE, for the Zero Gravity Flair Bartender’s Competition.

I May Have Drowned My Sorrows In Too Much Ketel One

With all the perks of bartending – beautiful women, cash tips, being able to sleep late – you’d think it couldn’t get any better. And then along come distributors, brand reps, and sales managers to sweeten the deal. Occasionally these people like to throw goodies our way to say thanks for selling their products. Which […]

I Want His Job.

There’s a great historic theater next to the bar I work in that occasionally hosts some really awesome shows. This past Saturday they played home to Zane Lamprey and his “Drinking Made Easy” tour for HDNet. Though he’s done a lot of different projects, Zane is mostly famous for his TV show Three Sheets. It’s a show […]
