- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I give estimates based on initial quote times, but would ask that we discuss when you would like to hand out your first drinks. It is important to have a properly prepared set for a most successful event. I also do travel a small traveling fee, but I will figure out a way to travel to you, if you are willing to negotiate with me. I had been offered to bartend for a party on vacation once, who knows? Parties can go anywhere, and like the motto says, "Have shaker, Will Travel."
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I will send an initial greeting, and feel out the clients to see what their needs are, and what I can do to be of service. We go over details for the venue and times, set up a contract, and then proceed with booking. As we continue the booking process, initial discussions of what kinds of drinks that will be featured begin, and we plan out your perfect drink menu.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have worked in nine different styles of restaurant, ranging from local semi dive bar, to upscale fine dining for over seventeen years since I was a teenager. I was also a paralegal in the U.S. Army for four years. For three and a half years I studied Sign Language, History, Philosophy and Criminal Law. I have been told by many managers that I have the gift of gab. I am a hard working, active bartender that loves making sure that everyone I encounter is having a good time.
