"You like me. You really like me!"
Sally Field in 1985 at the Oscars

Well sports-fans (an old expression of pop's), looks like i'm bartending once again. Special thanks to Steve G. for putting in a good word for me with the owners last week. Plus, Fireman Joe's connection with them must have helped. Dipper was nice enough on Saturday to say "The best bartender in Hoboken!" to the owners as I was exiting the bar and he was entering. I'm not the best bartender, not by far. I have no idea why the new owners chose me over others, but certainly i'm flattered.

I will be bartending for the Hoboken St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday from 4pm to close. Also after the renovations they indicated that they want me to bartend, but i'm not sure what night they want me. Honestly, I really just want a Friday or a Saturday night and that's it. I have my 9 to 5 job, and can't do the Tuesday night bartending shift until 3am anymore and then try to go into work on 4 hours of sleep. Heck, I couldn't have done it when I was 16, either.

It is a lot of fun to be around the owners because they enthusiasm was like the way Dipper's used to be. They have a lot of ideas and are being very creative. For the last two years Dipper's has been under a morale crushing situation - the owner was always trying to sell the bar and when you work there, it just casts a shadow over the whole place, you know?

Either way, I will see how the situation looks come April. If the new bar & me seem to be a fit, then I will bartend. If not, then I will be a patron. I enjoy good wine, good port and good food - and it sounds like the new bar is going to have all that and more.

you frequently refer to your 9-5 job as being sufficient to pay the bills and that bartending is only for the satisfaction of it all..just curiuos, what is your real "day job"?

I survey all the dentists to find out if 4 out of 5 really recommend chewing Trident after eating to clean and protect teeth.

If you are really dying to know, you can always email me.

Aren't you one of the guys in those Captain Morgan commercials? :)

Considering the amount of Captain Morgan I have drank, I should be a spokespirate. Da-Ba-Cha! Thank you, thank you, I will be here all week.
