Came across Stephanie a week ago when the original bartender backed out last minute for my 50th birthday party. She did a fantastic job of handling the last minute arrangements with very little help (I was pretty stressed) . She suggested bringing a server to pass trays/help cleanup since there were close to 100 guests. I'm glad she did because (though I don't remember her name) she did a fantastic job!
Note: She also told me she secures a backup bartender for all events, which really helped, considering what had happened...
Stephanie saved me last minute and I actually enjoyed my party. The guests loved her and one even commented, "whatever balance of professionalism, personality and efficiency a bartender should have, she's got it!". I told her at the end of the evening, I've never seen a party where the bartender is mentioned so often as she was.
And, though the end of the night was a bit fuzzy, I was quickly reminded the next morning these accounts were spot on as I woke up to find little evidence there was a party the night before. Her and her assistant had swept through the place, cleared all the trash and left everything neatly on the counters to put away. So awesome!
In summary I would hire her again and probably will. In fact, I will probably have more parties coming up, now that I know how easy and fun it can be~!
