Props to DC Drinks
I love this post on "Why Your Bartender Hates You." It is a must-read for anyone who goes to bars, tends bar and has any affinity for bartenders what-so-ever.
I appreciate someone who can serve up a kick-a** drink with a little personality on-the-side. For a bartender full of knowledge and talent, I am an eager and appreciative audience. I reward them with revel and awe (and, of course, put my moo-lah where my mouth is).
On that subject, I've noted some shitty tippers during my time in DC - even at free events - which really amazes me because people in Washington have money. What the hell? I'd like to hear your thoughts on that...
I've also come across some incredibly talented "mixologists" during my time in the District - many of whom inspired me to start my cocktail blog. For God's sake, treat these people well, tip them accordingly and everyone has a better night!!
I love a good drink - and I love a good bartender... especially in a fun, lively and comfortable atmosphere. And, a friendly attitude behind the bar is the cream on the cake.
It's what I call my Liquid Muse wet dream...
