Behind The Taps: Happy Hour

Many of your local hotspots have a special of the night or even a happy hour, this is the perfect time to get your favorite drink for a steal. Drinking cheap is an awesome way to drink, but you must remember to still tip your bartender even while drinking on a budget. It is important to remember that the bartender does not set the prices or make the rules.  However, the owner insists bartenders follow the prices and rules.

Serial daters are famous at most saloons for hitting on their waitress or bartender. Often the moment his date goes to the bathroom he’s throwing his ...

Behind The Taps: How To Become A Bartender

  Chuckz asks: How do you become a bartender? It varies by what type of bar you are applying at, whether it is upscale, the local hub or a dive bar. Some places like to see a fancy certificate from a bartending training course. Others prefer a good attitude and a drive to learn and improve. Often the manager will have you start out as a bar-back or bouncer if you have no experience, and make you prove yourself. Even I was a bouncer (ha) and a bar-back at one point. At some places you may get to skip this step with your looks, but it sucks a lot to just be thrown to the sharks without wading into the water first. You have to ...
