What Kind of Person Takes a Bartending Course Anyway?

The question I ask myself is who decides to take a bartending course anyway? Now that I teach bartending I think I can come up with that answer. If you are like I was you might be jumping from job to job with the only thing to show for it is a small amount of […]

Prepare to be Excellent

The other night I was giving the students the bartending test so I can give them some kind of mark for the course. It is a pretty easy test and throughout the 10 weeks if they had been reading the notes I had been giving out each week they would have no problem passing. So […]

I Was On Local Television Tonight

I was on television tonight doing a plug for the Bartending Course. It was fun to watch but I have to say with all these spots I am doing on television lately I think I have had enough exposure. Now it is time to do it with some compensation. Sure it is fun to do […]

I Am Happy For This Street In the Next Town From Where I Live

The bartending course started on Monday night for me and goes on for 10 weeks. I have been teaching the course for 4 years now. I only have the bare minimum 6 right now but 4 of them all got together and decided to take the course. When they all started calling each other by […]

I Will Be On Nationwide Television October 6th

I will be on a customer service documentary that will be aired nationwide on October 6th at 9PM on a show called HotDocs. This is going to be on the CBC. Last November you may have recalled I did a shoot for this documentary featuring me a waiter serving others in a restaurant. Oh and […]

Rogers TV at Georgian College

The local cable station is spending a week at Georgian College and I did an 8 minute interview on the bartending course I teach at the college. It was pretty exciting and will be aired 5-6 times during the summer. I will try to let you know when it takes place and put it on […]

If I Hear This One More Time I Am Going To Scream

“You know Steven your request to have Monday nights off to teach Bartending can change if someone with more seniority wants that night off.” Yeah I know that but do you have to keep reminding me! Like really if working for a union was this much trouble I might have second guessed my decision to […]
