Get your Knit on with Brooklyn bar babe Tyisha!
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.
My drag name would be: Berger Queef
Favorite gogo boy: Xavier Blanco
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!
