Bar that I work at: Metropolitan
How long I’ve worked there: 13 Years, epic…
What are my shifts: Monday Night (Hot Fruit!), Wednesday Happy Hour, Thursday Night (rotating parties), Friday Happy Hour.
What makes this bar great: The best regular customers. There’s no shitty-ass jukebox. Diverse crowd, it’s not just a bunch of gay clones. Our big back yard!
Best drink I make: If it’s not busy, I’ll make you the best Sidecar (if it’s busy, don’t bother ordering one, it ain’t gonna happen). If it’s really busy, I can make a great Manhattan quickly.
I love it when customers: Tip well, of course!
I hate it when customers: Roll in with an entitled attitude.
Craziest thing I’ve seen here: That’s hard! Walking out to the yard to find a former cleaning guy in nothing but a pink heart thong, kneeling on top of a barstool, doing some sort of pagan sun ritual in the dead of winter was a good one. Or: one night, somebody was blocking the bathroom door from the inside. It was busy, so I wasn’t having it. I kicked the door open and accidentally knocked a guy pretty hard on to the dick he was sucking. He ended up gagging and puking on it.
Other places I’ve worked: A bunch of Psychic Parties and Culture Whore parties.
My hometown: NYC native!
Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: Play ice hockey with my husband–I’m the captain of our team. Perform experimental electronic music.
Single or Taken: Been taken for a long time!
Who/what turns me on: Well, my husband, duh. But, hockey players in general are the hottest creatures on Earth.
Favorite music: Forever a Goth.
Favorite movie or TV show: Twin Peaks.
Favorite drag queen: Now how am I not supposed to piss a bunch of people off with this question? I work with some great queens! TBH, one queen in particular has been a great friend too… Merrie Cherry. We’re family.
My drag name would be: Sicily Spacek (thanks, Daniel).
Favorite gogo boy: That one that became a musician (or an actor, not sure), but used to pull beads out of his ass at the Hose.
Other stuff you need to know about me: I’m always down for epic Music and Horror Movie discussions while working Happy Hour.
Follow me on: I have an Insta, but I think I lost my login. I’m not that active, maybe I’ll get back to that. Starting a Bandcamp page for my music soon…
