What sets a good bartender apart from someone who just pours beer into your glass? Like i have a clue. i’m a better drink drinker than drink maker.
Still, i know what kind of bartender i’m trying to be here and i wrote them down because, well because i wouldn’t be able to remember my own name if i hadn’t had it tattooed upside down on my gut.
Having written it down, i figured i’d share it with y’all, fellow members of the D-Generation.

3a. Discerning (when deciding to cut you off)
3b. Diplomatic (when they cut you off)
8. Good Listener / Good Talker
10. Forgetful (which makes it easier to stay friends)
