Where can people find you? Martinis Above Fourth

What's your favorite drink to make and why? A Manhattan. It's classic and a bold departure from Vodka based cocktails

What do people order most often? The Pearl Necklace...and they always giggle after they say it out loud.

What's your pet peeve drink order? Any blended beverage. We're a Martini bar - not Margaritaville.

What was your worst tip? A party that sat at the bar for hours and left $0 because I wouldn't give them my phone number.

What's the worst pick-up line you've ever received from a customer? A guy once told us that we're there to serve him and that the customer is always right...he wasn't talking about getting a drink. No charm and no tact...

What's the funniest thing you've seen take place during a shift? That would have to be a seven foot tall Babette Schwartz dressed in a huge blue and black mohawk for an 80's themed Bingo Lunch

What's the most scandalous thing you've ever witnessed while working? I'd have to say it was the streaker we had run through our dining room during a private event.

What do you love most about your job? Honestly the best part is that when you are the bartender, everyone wants to talk to you or get your attention. Of course, with great power...

If you were a cocktail, what would you be and why? I think that I'd be a Lemondrop, my personality can be both sweet and tart at the same time.
