A group of bartenders and I that started the industry together have a thanksgiving tradition. Knowing this would be the only Turkey we would get that day, we would gather in a bar after our shifts for a shot together.Time and distance doesn’t allow us to see each other anymore, but we all take a photo of our post work shots and send them to each other is celebration of the family we create by being part of the industry.
This is my photo from last year since my shift begins in an hour. I encourage you (The Angry Bartender) and all those that view this if shared to do the same with your brothers/sisters in arms. We may not get to be with our blood family today, but our bar family is just has important.
