So, you want to be a bartender...

I don't know anyone that had a perfect first experience on their first outing as a bartender. Most bartenders do the two weeks of school first, though there are a few who just picked it up by working in restaurants as a fill-in or a bar back.

Darcy over at Art of Drink is no exception to the flawed first experience. His first time bar tending basically started out with no booze, no cash for change, and only a few cheap beers to dish out. He says he had about $35 in cash in his pocket that he made change with, though I have a hard time believing this part because no one starting out as a bartender has that much cash to their name, much less in their pocket.

Read his entire, heart-warming for the whole family account over at Art of Drink.
