A Babe among Babes: Model/pourmaster Dave at Boxers!
Bar that I work at: Boxers HK
How long I’ve worked there: Almost 2 years
What are my shifts: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturday for brunch
What makes this bar great: I really enjoy the atmosphere, and how diverse our crowd can be. This was also the first gay bar I walked into on my own.
Best drink I make: I make a mean Margarita. But I can be really nice 😉
I love it when customers: Are friendly, and have a smile on their face.
I hate it when customers: Yell out my name or snap their fingers to get my attention when there are people waiting before them.
Craziest thing I’ve seen here: A guy took a sip of his drink, and when I went to check on him two seconds later, he was passed out and vomited all over the place.
Other places I’ve worked: I worked at a PR agency, and a restaurant in the UES
My hometown: I’m a born and raised New Yorker, from Queens.
Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I’m either at the gym, out with friends or seeing a musical.
Single or Taken: Single AF, but working on it.
Who/what turns me on: Someone with a brain, a nice smile to match.
Favorite music: It changes from time to time, but it’s usually hip hop, alternative, and Broadway showtunes
Favorite movie or TV show: Wonder Woman, all five Underworld movies, Once Upon A Time, Archer, The Flash, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Insecure, American Horror Story, Broad City, and American Dad.
Favorite drag queen: I have two. My girl Chaka Khanvict was the first drag queen I ever encountered, and I can never help but laugh at her reads. The other is Jacqueline Dupree who graces Boxers HK with her vocal talents every Tuesday night for karaoke.
My drag name would be: Davina Valentine
Favorite gogo boy: I don’t really know any.
Favorite DJ: I feel like I’m being set up with this question, haha. I can’t choose just one because I’ve built good relationships with many DJs, so my favorites are: Panos, 2Face, Steve Sidewalk, J Roc, John Marto, Neverland, Ian Ford and Eric Abobo.
Other stuff you need to know about me: I’m a huge Marvel/DC fan. I can read comics almost as well as I can read people.
