First Day of School...
I'm preparing to take the plunge and do the B.A.R. (Beverage Alcohol Resource) certification course, this week. It's going to be intense - and its damn expensive so I am going to force myself to focus and not get distracted in New York. Especially because I'm probably one of the only people paying for myself to go to this thing. It seems like most attendees are sponsored by their bar or a liquor company they represent.
However, I believe this is a great way to "validate" my profession, and test my own abilities when it comes to spirits, wine and, of course, cocktails. If nothing else, its a measuring stick of where I am strong and where I could stand to improve.
So, on the first day of B.A.R. school ... do I bring the teacher an Apple Martini?
