Hello Party Animals, been a while since I posted here. This site is currently a holding place for future business website. I post more often on my Facebook page you know where it is. A lot has happened with me, I am constantly learning and updating my skills. I recently obtained BarSmarts mixology certification and will be taking the advanced course in October.
I am currently bartending at the Key West Airport arrivals bar it’s a small bar with not much in the way of cocktails but it’s some income for now. One of the owners recently visited and is considering running specials and a happy hour to attract locals back to the airport bars, that is great news. Years ago the airport was one of the happening bars in town until renovation and high prices knocked it out of the locals scene.
Next month I will be attending Tales of the Cocktail New Orleans to learn more about craft cocktails, meet some new people (cocktail nerds like me). It’s a 5 day convention and learning experience, can’t wait!
Key West is pretty slow right now. Not too much new, Gap store and Starbucks just opened just what we needed. There is a great new bar on Greene Street called “Chicago’s” good food and live music. There is also a craft cocktail bar called “The Other Side” (the only one I know of in KW) it’s located across the hall from “The Porch” craft beer bar. I recently went in there and had a delicious cocktail they call the “Hemingway”. The bartenders in this place are awesome. I would like to work here, could learn a lot.
That’s all I got for now, I am usually either home, working or at one of the above mentioned hangouts or of course Cuban Coffee Queen in the morning.
Cheers Party Animals!
