Friday night will be my First Ever Professional Bartending Gig. And am I ever getting "thrown into the deep end". It will be at a private party for some Very Important People at their company's World Headquarters. Again, I think I'm getting assigned to this because I am uber presentable ... but I'm scared to death that I won't be able to remember how to make a Soctch & Soda, let alone a Cosmopolitan or anything more obscure! I spent a chunk of this afternoon with my nose buried in my Drink Book, and will probably be up all tomorrow evening studying recipes.
I still am in search of "a regular job" out there (I was running around filling out 2 apps today, 2 yesterday, and 4 on Monday) but I sort of wish my "first gig" was something a bit less intimidating ... however, the guy at the catering group considers this his "crown jewel" account, so I don't think he'd be risking it if he didn't think I was up to handling it. I hope.
