Best known for | My contagious smile & delicious cocktails!
Best story from behind the wood | On a Sunday morning brunch shift, a client I was serving asked me for a cup of the strongest hot sauce we could provide, what a bad move! Good thing my cook had just freshly made a terrifying ghost pepper hot sauce the day before! So I proceeded to bring my guest a cup of this evil mixture warning him that it is dangerous and not to fool around with it, but also jokingly daring him to swallow it whole for a shot of whiskey! I told him I was joking, but I guess the fact that 10 other of his friends were sitting there taunting him to chug it down elegantly, must have made him think it was a good idea. He cried for about 15 minutes so I brought him a well deserved shot of whiskey and some sugar for his poor mouth. All in all he left the establishment laughing with his buddies!
