Helped with pre planning to include a theme and decorations, added a trainee to give us two for the price of one bartender, arrived early to help with set up, very very customer friendly. We will use her again and spread the word!Jul 14, 2016Verified
On behalf of Elegant Events By J&S, we would like to officially commend Bartender, Pirate Debbie on her professional and efficient bartender services. Her extensive knowledge of beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) is impressive. It is rare that we work with bartenders who not only present themselves in a professional matter physically, but also have the attitude and demeanor that draws guests in. We FULLY appreciate the fact that Debbie is self-contained and works well under pressure. She was a joy to have and our clients spoke highly of the quality of her drinks. Because we work events within a 60 mile radius of Tampa, it is important for us to have a reliable vendor who will travel (within reason) to work our events. We created an immediate bond with Debbie and will definitely be working with Pirate Debbie in the future!! A++++++++++ Services!!Jun 1, 2015VerifiedPirate Debbie Private Party Bartending And Event Staffing's reply
The event I worked for Elegant Events was a complete joy to do.I thoroughly enjoyed working with and for Sherran as she is a complete professional and under her direction, the event was a complete success.I would like to thank her for the opportunity and I am overjoyed that she was so happy with my services.
I work for Elegant Events By J&S and have to say that as a company, we are pleased with the bartending services provided by Pirate Debbie. Not only is she an amazing bartender, Pirate Debbie goes above and beyond the call of her job by tailoring her drinks, garnishments, and mixing styles to the event theme and crowd. Our clients rave over her personality and professional appearance. Please understand that she will dress based on the theme of the event. This ranges from very casual to very formal -- and she has done formal events for us. Due to the remarkable skills of Pirate Debbie, we are pleased to announce that Elegant Events By J&S officially endorses Pirate Debbie as our Preferred Vendor in the field of bartending services!!Aug 25, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is competitive or lower than alot of others. I personally evaluate the needs of each event and present a quote free of charge of course. I do not charge a deposit or cancellation fee. I usually charge a small booking fee and a travel fee depending on location. Payment of services is due at the conclusion of the event in cash or check. The total cost will be clearly stated before you hire (us) me. I do have limits on numbers of guests per person as I will not overload myself or my people where service is not the best it can be. Example-over 80 guests will require an extra bartender. We want to give the best, most efficient and fast service. I do provide alot of services free of charge such as drink menu planning and shopping lists. There are extras available such as a garnish paclage, cups, coolers, etc. at an additional charge.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I JUST FIND OUT WHAT THEY WANT AND ALL THE DETAILS AND DO MY VERY BEST TO DELIVER TO THEIR EXPECTATIONS. I AM VERY FLEXIBLE AND I LISTEN TO THEM AND FULFILL THEIR NEEDS..I AM WILLING TO HELP THEM FIGURE OUT WHAT IT TAKES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT IF THEY NEED HELP. I HAVE MADE DRINK MENUS, LIQUOR AND SUPPLY LISTS AND EVEN HELPED WITH PRICING AT CASH FUNCTIONS.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I STUDY ABOUT FOOD AND WINES ON MY OWN AND I MUST ADMIT I WATCH THE FOOD NETWORK MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN. I do posses licenses: FLORIDA OFF PREMISES SERVING OF ALCOHOL AND FLORIDA RESPONSIBLE SERVER OF ALCOHOL AND FLORIDA SAFE SERVE CERTIFICATION (FOOD)
