Bar Babe of the Month: Tyisha at Good Judy & C’mon Everybody

Get your Knit on with Brooklyn bar babe Tyisha!

Bar(s) that I work at: Good Judy, C’mon Everybody, and Hinterlands Bar.

How long I’ve worked there: I’ve been at C’mon Everybody and Good Judy for 8 months, and Hinterlands Bar for 6 months.

What are my shifts: Tues/Wed/Fri at Good Judy and Thu/Sat at Hinterlands Bar. I pick up at C’mon so you’ll find me there randomly!

What makes these bars great: C’mon Everybody and our sister bar, Good Judy, are such amazing spaces for queer folks. The parties and shows you can catch at either are always lively. My co-workers are some of the funniest, most gracious people that I know. Hinterlands is such a friendly neighborhood bar, and they’ve really created a community here. The regulars make the bar a fun place to work, and I really appreciate them.

Best drink I make: I love making Manhattans and Martinis! I make a mean Paper Plane as well.

I love it when customers: are respectful of the space and tip well. Service industry workers have had a rough go at it the past couple of years, and it feels like folks forget that we rely on tips to survive!

I hate it when customers: Touch me! There’s no reason as to why you would ever need to touch your bartender to order a drink. 

Craziest thing I’ve seen here: There might have been some ass-eating at one of the bars once. Not my ass. Fun night, though!

Other places I’ve worked: Before I started bartending full-time, I worked at Argyle Yarn Shop in Brooklyn. 

My hometown: Brooklyn born and raised.

Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I’m either knitting, eating, or sleeping. Preferably in that order.

Single or Taken: Single

Who/what turns me on: At the moment of writing this, chicken tenders and 8 hours of sleep.

Favorite music: It’s so dependent on my mood, but Janelle Monáe, Jazmine Sullivan, and Whitney Houston are some of my favorite artists. I can listen to their music all day.

Favorite movie or TV show: My favorite movie is Terminator 2, and my favorite TV show is Insecure.

Favorite drag queen: Essa Noche and The Dragon Sisters are literally made of magic. Also, have so much love for Chiquitita, La Zavaleta, Jax, Spinderella, and Maddelynn Hatter.

My drag name would be: Berger Queef

Favorite gogo boy: Xavier Blanco

Favorite DJ: Again, I have so many! Highgnx and Dimple aka Sailor Boom, DJ Samuella, Adair, DJ Knox, and DJ Patrick Kyle are some of my favorite DJs.

Other stuff you need to know about me: I am a Libra, hence the indecisiveness, haha. Also, I started a craft club at Good Judy, and we meet every other Monday. It’s a great opportunity to work on projects and connect with other crafters. You can visit mine or Good Judy’s IG for more info!
