Bartender Handshakes (Charlie Tonic Hour #306)

Bartender Handshakes (Charlie Tonic Hour #306)

This week we kick things off with SO MANY stories. From salsa dancing to yuletide nightmares, there’s a lot to cover. After that Mike Bowling joins us once again. You may remember him from episode #302 where we covered arcade bars. This time he provides a bit of industry perspective as we discuss bartender handshakes. These are those little insider drinks that bartenders share when they meet. First we delve into the concept then we line up a mix of them and work our way through a tasting. All this plus a couple event recommendations round out the week!
