A trip down memory lane...
As a former service-industry emplyoee (I worked every position in NY bars for over a decade) I turn to this podcast when I need a lighthearted, fun, and funny trip down memory lane. This is my guilty pleasure podcast without having to feel guilty at all! Love it.
Joey is the bartender host with the most!
Fun behind the scenes stories of the food service industry, cocktail history, dad jokes, a hunky bartender host- what more could one ask for? 🖤
Great podcast sharing about a day in the life of someone in the service industry! Great stories and fun episodes to listen to. Really like this podcast!
