I’m at the Mews, behind the bar, guy orders a Strongbow, starts a tab, I write down his name, with a line under it, the price of the Strongbow, and at the bottom, I write “jean jacket.”
I make little notes about people when they start a tab, so I don’t have to keep on askin for their name. Cool glasses, plaid shirt, stripes, that sorta thing. But sometimes, I don’t know what to put. Let’s see…short brown hair, polo shirt, medium height, shaved. See what I mean? There’s just NOTHING UNIQUELY DESCRIPTIVE ABOUT THEM. Is this a problem? I don’t know…is it? I mean, I’m a pretty plain dresser, white t-shirt, jeans, but I would hope a bartender would be able to come up with a quick few words to describe me, that would help them remember who I am.
Grey beard, bald, Malkovich.
From my heart to yours,
Clint Curtis. Bartender.
