Death and Co.



From their website:

"In 1919 the Volstead Act brought a swift end to nightlife, and the refined craft of the American bartender was outlawed. It was thought that to drink alcohol was to live a life shadowed by death. It was thought by some that these were death and company. It's taken us nearly a century to restore flavor to the drink and class to the specialty cocktail. In our time, a night to celebrate life's simple pleasures with fine wine, exquisitely crafted cocktails, beautifully prepared food, and impeccable sipping spirits is a rare gift. To those who shun the night, we tip our hat. To those who shine after the dusk, we offer a warm embrace. Welcome to the new golden age. Welcome to Death and Co."

We just found out yesterday that one of our favorite bars in NYC is looking for a floor manager. Gia is sending them her resume today. She has had a bunch of interviews with places all over the map and it looks like she might be getting a few offers very soon. This one, however, would be nice! Because I like to drink there. Hey...I'm allowed to be a little selfish.

I'll keep you updated.

Isn't this every man's dream, to have a girlfried / wife / significant other server him drinks whenever he wants? How come you get all the fun?

Steph said...

For the three years that I bartended (when I was much younger) I never bought one drink.

it was cool.

Best of luck on the manager job!

Did i just say that out loud?

Avi - thanks!

Lotus - She's been my bar goddess for our entire relationship and before. Only the location will change.

Diva - She's not my lady friend! She's my SPECIAL lady friend! Or some quote from "The Big Lebowski" that I can't properly think of right now.

Steph - You never bought back any drinks when you bartended? Just kidding...I know what you meant. ;)

Slyde - Like you see my beautiful, sexy face that often anyhow. ;)

If she gets the job will you be saying where? Because I am sure I can convince Dawg that we need to have a beer there. :D
