NATIONAL BARTENDER DAY

Sorry to have missed a couple of days. I was up in Carrollton visiting old friends from my days teaching/coaching at UWG. Carrollton and that area in general has really grown. Had some difficulty navigating around early in the trip. Back just in time to help celebrate:

National Bartender Day

they also tend to be some of the best listeners around. Also known as National Bartender Appreciation Day, the observance takes a day to raise a toast to the men and women working the late nights. Their minds contain an index of creative cocktails and mixed drinks to quench their patron’s thirst.

The best bartenders keep an eye out for their clientele. They bring us in with some of the best chili and snacks. Then, they keep us coming back all year long with football, baseball, and hockey. Some make a home in dive bars where everyone knows each other. Others keep us company in airport bars as we’re passing through.

At the pub or our favorite restaurant, they keep the bar stocked and ready to serve. Whether it’s a shot, a craft beer or club soda, they are prepared to pour. You know who we’re talking about. And at the end of the night, at closing time, they offer taxis and rideshares, too. Then it’s time to clean up and start all over again.

Show your bartender some appreciation. Tip them extra well. Be the designated driver for your group. Accept the taxi when it’s offered. Make their job a little bit easier. As always, remember never to drink and drive. Use #NationalBartenderDay to share on social media.

Bartenders may become even more important after tomorrow's game....one way or the other!! Go Dawgs.

    Someone needs to pick up the slack when @donme decides to take PTO. I would imagine a bartender has a tough gig depending on the setting
