New link posted – A Tip From the Bartender

Long time readers might have noticed that I don’t write much about life behind the bar or discuss the issues that bar personnel face. That’s because I’ve never been, nor have I ever desired, to be a bartender. Being a successful bartender requires a skill set that I just don’t possess. Of course, I occasionally post about libations and the importance of waiters knowing their bar products. I should probably remind waiters that bartenders are valuable allies in the quest for great service and they should be cherished for their craft.

So I’m happy to add a new blog to my blog roll, and a new category to boot.

A Tip From the Bartender is a well-written and entertaining look at your friendly neighborhood bartender. Sharp and stylish, the writer offers often sharp commentary on the daily grind of bartending and the situations that bartenders find themselves in.

I hope that you take the time to visit.

Posting from as far south as you can get in the United States (and formerly from the very cool state of Colorado), this Key West bartender has some great stories and trenchant insights on the behavior of Homo Barstoolis, that species of Homo Sapiens known for a dominant lizard brain,over-sized ego and poorly developed and alcohol-impared ability to summon common sense and decency. The part of the brain that controls social functions is also rather fractured in this showy member of the human genus and thus, it’s an infinitely fascinating species to watch in the wild, especially during its mating rituals.
