Best story from behind the wood | Constantly meeting people from around the world and hearing about their lives. Had a customer sit at my bar and told me about their current trip to the city. Turned out to be a fairly well known actor and he applauded my use of islay scotch and vanilla beans to create a unique cocktail that he wanted to show his friends. Told me he would definitely stop by for any other ideas I was working on.
