It’s touching for this old bartender got a little heartfelt mention on the Nightlife Culture NYC blog! Cool man! As my wife likes to ask, when evaluating ethical or financial dilemmas, “is this good for the Jews or bad for the Jews?” I say it’s damned good! She’s a halfie and can therefore get away with an off-color question/comment like that I guess. Even if she wasn’t, I don’t really care if anyone’s annoyed. Move on – nothing to see here folks. I think she inherited the wit from her Dad, who comes from a long line of comical Ukrainian immigrants (they’re career midget circus clowns).
As I’ve mentioned, I’m not a writer – although with this blog now about 8 months old – one could reasonably begin questioning my continued denial. My intent in kicking this bad boy blog off last year was not financial gain, publicity, notoriety or anything else other than my penchant for blowing off steam in a way that I can just about never do where I work.
I’ve gotta say though, in recent months, it’s been incredibly fun and enlightening to connect with industry peeps (bartenders in particular), who are of similar disposition and experience, not to mention – hella funny. I never knew any of them existed when I first started out. Check them out in my Blogroll.
