- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The bar is a great source of fun and entertainment at any party, and with great personalities and super fun bartenders I’ll make sure the bar at your reception is one your guests will never forget! We'll generally arrive with coolers, cups, cocktail napkins, 200 lbs of ice, bar tools, 4 cases of bottled water, a solid plan (and a backup plan!) and all the other little things nobody thinks about to make sure your bar runs beautifully for your big day. I'm a licensed bartender and I'm fully insured with a $1,000,000 alcohol liability policy (your venue may require that). If your bartender is not insured, the liability may fall back to you. I'll also assist you to make sure you get the right amount of beer, wine & liquor to last for your entire event. We're more than just a folding table and a bow tie!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to chat with each client a bit to find out exactly what they'd like to have. A lot of times, they're not even sure what that is when we first start, and that's perfectly fine. That's what we're here for! We do a ton of events and can usually fill you in on how these things work. It's your event and we want it to be exactly what you had in mind (or even better!). I'll walk you through all the steps and take anything I can off of your plate to free you up to handle all the other things you're working on. We can work on a drink menu together and I'll put together a shopping list of exactly what you'll need to get to have enough alcohol to get you through your entire event. I'm always an email, phone call or text away to help you out with anything you need.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Cicerone Certification, which just means I've studied and learned a LOT about beer and all the different types and styles, so I can certainly assist you in picking out the right beers for your event. I've also managed a bar in Asheville for many years, so bartending, hospitality and customer service is actually coursing through my veins (you can see it if you look closely enough...). Organizing, preparing and making sure everything runs smoothly is just what I do. Let me take away all of your worries about the bar for your event!
