From Little Pocket Gay on the Prairie (really!) to Rise-ing stage star, the adorbs Troyer is bringing all the cock(tail) (wait, which part should be in parentheses?) directly to you… while reading you to filth!
Bar that I work at: Rise Bar
How long I’ve worked there: 2 years
What are my shifts: It depends on the week, but I’m there a ton. If you go anytime Fri-Sun, you’re bound to see me.
What makes this bar great: The atmosphere. Rise is one of the cleanest bars in HK even before Covid, and the energy on a Friday or Saturday night is unreal!
Best drink I make: I’m a server, so I don’t make any drinks. But our caramel vodka in our hot cider is amazing on a chilly evening.
I love it when customers: Tip generously, obviously. 😉
I hate it when customers: don’t follow the guidelines, and I have to be their babysitter. Also, when I’m busy and a table says they’re ready to order, and then none of them know what they want.
Craziest thing I’ve seen here: On Halloween of 2019, there was a little person dressed up as Freddy Krueger hired to dance on the bar. [Editor’s note: actually per Rise owner Ted Arenas, the dancer was dressed as Chucky, not Freddy!]
Other places I’ve worked: Rise is the first bar I’ve worked at, but I’m an actor… so I’ve worked at a bunch of different theater companies. I was also on the National Tour of The Wizard of Oz where I traveled to around 100 cities, shortly before starting at Rise.
My hometown: The suburbs of St. Louis. Dardenne Prairie, to be exact.
Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I love going to drag shows, Broadway shows, crocheting, playing video games, and hanging with friends. You can also spot me at one of the audition studios.
Single or Taken: Single and ready to mingle.
Who/what turns me on: Confident men who are forward. I also have a thing for short boys. I’m 5’4” myself, and love other pocket gays. All sizes are welcome though. 🙂
Favorite music: Pop and showtunes. I listen to Alex Newell constantly.
Favorite movie or TV show: Animation is my shit. Rick and Morty, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, South Park, and every Disney / Pixar movie. However, get me hooked on a show like GoT and I’ll binge.
Favorite drag queen: Trixie Mattel
My drag name would be: Miss Button De’Air
Favorite DJ: Oh jeez… I love all of the DJs that work at Rise. DJ 2Face really knows how to get my blood pumping.
Other stuff you need to know about me: I love joking around with and reading tables, so don’t be surprised if I read you for filth. I do it with all with love and fun.
Follow me on: I only have Facebook. I know… everyone thinks I’m insane for not using Insta!
