Favourite “at work” memory | It kind of sucked at the time but I was working at Craft Beer Market downtown during an Oilers reunion game and a raucous crew of retired hockey players including Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier came in to drink all the Caesars we could make. Someone must have leaked a photo of Wayne on Twitter or something because the restaurant filled up with people asking for autographs. We were pretty understaffed that day and I was newer to bartending so I was pretty stressed and dropped a pint glass, Wayne leaned over the bar and yelled “YOU’RE CUT OFF!” At me with the volume of a freight train. Looking back it makes a pretty good story I think.
What do you collect? I’m not sure I’m much of a collector, I have lots of loose change from tips on my floor at home though.
Favourite thing about your city? The fact that everyone is so stoked to improve upon it. I live in a city of dreamers and people aren’t afraid to try new things and follow those dreams here.
