How long I’ve worked there: 3 years
What are my shifts: Friday – Monday from 3-10pm at Pieces
What makes this bar great: You are guaranteed to always have a great time (especially if I’m working). With the pandemic going on, the owners have really outdone themselves with how beautiful the outdoor love stable aesthetic looks; not to mention the heaters are phenomenal, too.
Best drink I make: I make a mean Tito’s soda, splash of cran.
I love it when customers: Are sweet and have a good time. Customers who I can have witty back and forth banter with make my day.
I hate it when customers: Ask “what’s good?” when ordering a drink.I’m not drinking it, you are! They always end up with a vodka soda.
Craziest thing I’ve seen here: When AndrogyNY fell face first like a god damn tree in the forest in front of Pieces.
Other places I’ve worked: This is my first nightlife gig.
My hometown: Astoria, Queens
Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: You could catch me on my couch binge-watching shows, enjoying drinks with friends or going to gym.
Single or Taken: Single AF, hit me up!
Who/what turns me on: hmmm… I wouldn’t say I have a “type,” my taste definitely varies. I am, however, a sucker for nice teeth and a nice smile. Colton Haynes, if you see this, call me!
Favorite music: My variety of music is all over the place, but I guess my go to would be pop.
Favorite movie or TV show: Not to sound so gay, but Mean Girls or My Cousin Vinny.
Favorite drag queen: Jacklynn Hyde
My drag name would be: Ivana Tension
Favorite gogo boy: I don’t really know any.
Other stuff you need to know about me: I never turn down a shot. Casamigos with a side of ginger ale if you want to buy me one, haha!
