Hey Bartender – Maddy Olds

Hey Bartender By Maddy Olds So a guy walks into the bar…. I love people and this is the main reason I’m a bartender. It has nothing to do with the party life or the life of a bartender. I love to talk to people. I feel kind of like a psychiatrist. Bartending is really […]

BarView By Kate Serpa Photos by Philip Johnson All Them Raw Emotions: Valentine’s Day at Raw Sushi Bistro Do you know what’s disgusting? Valentine’s Day happens to be my favorite holiday.

O’Brians Tavern

O’Brians Tavern

O’Brians Tavern By Kate Serpa O’Brian’s Tavern was, up until this past week, completely off the radar for me. I had never previously been, and being the 95 year-old woman I often feel myself to be, I didn’t feel myself too inclined to try someplace new.
