Thoughts From a Bartender: Over Drinking on a Date

By: Lindsay Hopper

When you bartend in a restaurant, you have the privilege of seeing both sides of the dating world when it comes to drinking, and it gets you thinking about the different outcomes that could occur based on how much a couple drinks while they’re on their date. You know how sometimes you have the unfortunate experience of sitting next to a couple and you find yourself thinking, “get a room…” because they are being overly “affectionate”?

Thoughts From a Bartender: How Has Technology Changed The First Date?

By: Lindsay Hopper

We live in a world where technology is everywhere. I remember when my family got our first computer over twelve years ago and now I basically walk around everyday with a computer in my purse. It’s in our cars, our finances, our work and our entertainment. And like everything, it definitely has it’s positives but it also has its negatives. Click here to read more…

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: First Date Rejection – How Far is Too Far?

By: Lindsay Hopper

As a bartender, you see a lot of first dates, especially when you bartend in a restaurant. You see bad dates, good dates, sometimes REALLY good dates (you know who I’m talking about- that couple that ends up having a few glasses of wine and starts making out in the corner), but very rarely do you see a really BAD date.

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: Coming Out

By Jesse Finkelstein

Last night while I was working, an older man came into my bar. He was wearing his actual military uniform. With a proud gait and shoulders straight, he walked up to me and asked me for a beer. He didn’t care what kind, so I gave him a good ol’ American beer—Budweiser. He paid for it, looked at me with bright eyes, and said “you don’t know how long I’ve waited to be able to do this.” Click here to read more…

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: Oh Snap, I Just Got Stood Up

By Jesse Finkelstein

So, I’ve never been stood up.

And that’s not me bragging, that’s just the truth. Sadly enough, I’ve gone on a couple of dates where I wish the guy hadn’t shown up. Like the guy who met me at a bar, already drunk, who spent most of the evening either in the bathroom doing cocaine, or talking to me about how ugly my friends were. You sir, are a douchebag.

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: He’s Into Me – But I’m Not Into Him

By Jesse Finkelstein

As someone who has spent most of his dating life being attracted to men who have absolutely no interest in me, I feel as though I have a wonderful insight into this topic. In fact, I only started seeing the other side of the coin once I became a bartender, and got to experience the multitude of creepy men drooling at the sight of my ass, however small it might be.

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: Gay Marriage

By Jesse Finkelstein

If you were told from the beginning of your life that you would never be allowed to get married, and you would never be allowed to have children, how would you live? How would you behave? If you knew you never had a chance at a “normal” life, what would that do to you?

That’s what a gay man (or woman) has had to deal with. The idea of getting happily married and settling down and raising kids has never been something that I even got to consider, because I’ve spent my whole life being told it wasn’t allowed. Click here to read more…

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: Interracial Dating in the Gay Community

By Jesse Finkelstein

So apparently, for some odd reason, interracial dating is still considered an “issue” in some places. I know, weird, right? I grew up surrounded by people of every different race, class, and sexual orientation, thus, I was always a little perplexed by this concept that a black man and a white woman shouldn’t be together, simply because of the color of their skin. Well, as it turns out it goes a little deeper than skin, though that is quite debatable as well. Click here to read more…

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: Strip Club Regulars

By Daniel Ponsky

Come on boys make some noise. The better the greenery the better the scenery. You wanna see if they’re real, you gotta make the deal. These are a few of the humorous lines that I remember the Dj spouting off in a strip club that I frequented regularly before I turned twenty-one. What else was a post pubescent male supposed to do as he gingerly climbed the latter of sexual success? Click here to read more…

Thursday’s Thoughts From a Bartender: Having a Threesome

By Daniel Ponsky

Naughty naughty little hotty with a body built for sin, does someone have a demon lurking down and from within? I think you do. I mean damn who doesn’t? We’re human beings, we do everything in excess. The way I see it is that to deny our inner voice the courtesy of our physicality is barbaric and I refuse to be apart of that stoic variety of thinking. Click here to read more…
