Favourite “at work” memory | My first ever shift at Good Fortune Bar, I was carrying a tray of 2 Eephus Nut Brown Ales from Left Field Brewing. I realized that I forgot coasters for the beer when I left the bar, so I leaned across the bar to grab coaster, spilled both beers on the Manager that JUST hired me… I went on to the run the bar a couple months down the line, so it wasn’t that bad, but man was that ever a shit first shift

Where was last place you traveled? Just got back from a 2 week road trip through the USA, hit Lost Lands Music fest in Ohio, Nashville, Wakaan Music Fest in Mulberry Mountain Arkansas, St Louis, and Chicago.
Any claims to fame? I started working in events, I worked for a company that worked, Wayhome, Boots & Hearts and the Rogers Cup, 3 weekend back to back to back, in the hottest summer on record.. pretty proud of that. I also took control of my first bar, less than a year after I started serving.
