Bartender Appreciation Day

First Friday in December

This day was originally established by Sailor Jerry back in 2014, and is a day to celebrate the people behind the bar who help make our days taste better!

And now more than ever it’s important to support our local, so get down there and enjoy a drink from your favourite bartender!

Here are a few things you can do while you’re there to help acknowledge this day:

  1. Say please and thank you (not just today, but always)
  2. Shout your bartender a drink.
  3. Have your money out ready and know what you’re going to order before approaching the bar
  4. Avoid making any unnecessary mess (e.g. ripping coasters, not using a coaster, throwing things, etc.)

Here’s to the men and women who give up their late nights out, so we can have ours. Who make our drinks, pour our shots, and give us our nightly meal of nuts and pretzels. We honor their hard work and their unwavering patience. Without them, we would be out on the street or even worse, stuck at home.
