Remember the hilarious scene in Mel Brooks' History of the World Part 1 when God gives the Commandments to Moses ("The Lord Jehovah has given unto you these 15 (crash) ....... oy, 10, 10 Commandments for all to obey!"). This post has nothing to do with that.
If you're reading this you've been spent time in bars, and you'll probably spend more time in them in the future. This good article from Shayla Love (click here to read it) provides a short and sweet summary of what to and do ...... and just as importantly, what not to do. Despite what some of you might think, unlike Love, I am not an industry professional. Nonetheless, I would like to add my own commandment -- remember that bartenders are more than mixologists.
Think of this as a Golden Rule for bars. It's not the version of the rule that declares he or she who has the gold rules (that just makes them a pretentious insecure jerk). I mean the traditional version of the rule -- Do unto bartenders as you would have them do unto you.
