A bartender we love

Craziest Thing That's Happened While You've Been Serving: An irate patron attacked me with her stiletto heel.

Celebrities Served: The vice president of New York's Hell's Angels, Evan Rachel Wood, Lady Dime (Dimebag Darrell's wifey)

Most Expensive Tab: I don't know the exact number, but it was around a grand. A middle-aged couple came to Devon Seafood Grill in Hershey, Pa., where I was bartending. She asked for the most expensive liquor we had. At the time it was Louis XIII de Remy Martin, a cognac, which we served for $110 an ounce. She threw back shots of that and gave her husband a look which just dared him to ask her to stop. He sat there silently. He must have really, really screwed up.

Biggest Tip: As a former NYC bartender, let's just say that the best tips weren't always monetary.

Favorite Thing To Do When Not Drinking: Cooking, bike riding, and imagining my two cats on a tandem bicycle.
