More Happening [Jan. 30th, 2010|11:57 pm]
I am currently writing a couple of cover letters; one regarding art stuff and another of more general skills, the latter of which I'm aiming toward getting a bartending (barback, or whathaveye) job. I've been looking into this occupation for a couple of months, and at this point I think it would mostly come down to finding just the right place. I've picked up these odd tendencies of being more friendly/confident/borderline-charismatic lately from the barista grind, and I apparently don't have any qualms about dealing with drunkards or troublemakers. A lot of the mundane responsibilities of cleaning, restocking, ordering, and whatnot can't be much different from those of my current job, so that leaves the processes of memorizing drinks (simple) and properly preparing them (less simple). Practicing mixing and prep skills would be pretty easy if I bought a few things, but I'm not going to get ahead of myself. This week's trek to GR is for all of us to scout the area regarding job availability, so... we'll see.

Also! I haven't quite cleared this with my soon-to-be roommates yet, but I would really like to host a 2010 Mid-night Picnic. If things aren't too crunchy time-wise, I figure the new apartment would be a great place to have it as that would sorta follow the Grand Rapids location tradition, and if it's scheduled either at the beginning or end of June that means it will happen right before or after the vacation I have planned so Emily might be able to attend as she will be in the arearunonsentencegeezus.

I have a bartenders "little black book" if you needed that to help in your quest to memorize and properly prepare drinks.

Also, I understand what you mean about properly prepared drinks. I go to Caribou every morning before work, there is one guy that I asked about being fired, because I hate him. He has two things against him though, his personality sucks because he never listens to what I say and he can't make a moosed dark chocolate cooler to save his life. I threw it away the two times he made it then told every other staff member he wasn't allowed to make my drink, then I asked when they were firing him.

You, sir, are hardcore. I commend you for calling out an asshole where calling out an asshole is due.
