So unfortunately it has been more difficult to update this page than I had originally anticipated. My phone only wants to make this easy once in a while so after taking 24 hours to recoup and look over my notes I can say that this journey has been amazing so far. Every venue I have seen, and been to, or worked behind has been so different. The people I have met along the way are inspirational to say the least. They have made me want to continue the journey as this has never been about me but about us as a community that comes together to help one another. My adventure has had its minor bumps (road and otherwise, I think snow was the biggest downfall so far) but every journey needs to have those in order to build character around it. Being on my motorcycle and seeing all of these places has me inspired and I am only a fraction of the way through this. By the time I leave on May 16th to start the longest part of the trip I will be 8 states in (hopefully) and I really can't wait to see what lies ahead. The people are the best part of this journey. Meeting new faces and seeing the familiar ones has been so much fun. It gives me a level of comfort knowing that when I step into a place they are welcoming and excited and so am I. I love seeing the new and the unexpected. Finding those places no one else has tried yet and seeing that this is what we do and it makes other people happy that we care about it in such a way that everyone around us is an inspiration. So far the journey has been Waterbury,CT at Highland Brass Co. where it has that local feel but they like their cocktails and seeing familiar faces behind the stick. Awesome little spot with some passionate guys running the show. George Zahariadis was great to work with and you can't go wrong with Dimitrios Elias Zahariadis making tacos (yup he cooks to) on a Tuesday night. First drink made on the trip... Pisco Sour and I couldn't be happier to do so. Providence,RI at The Dorrance where the atmosphere is ripe with historical influence but the bar is what maintains. The beauty of the dining room with the personality (and speed not to mention quality) behind the bar made for a great experience. Their community there really pulls through and wants everyone to feel welcome. Greg Mayer and Vito Lantz thank you for letting me spend time behind your bar. Joaquin Meza thanks for bringing me tacos on my usual Wednesday night taco feast. Much appreciated sir. Also while in Providence don't miss out on some other great spots, The Eddy, The Magdalenae Room, and of course El Rancho Grande for some tacos. Dartmouth, MA. Yup that's right I was at a place with a program built by the Cocktail Guru himself, Jonathan Pogash at a place called Little Moss Restaurant. What a beautiful little gem this is, the food is spectacular and the ownership was so welcoming. This was such a great spot that I hope if you are within 45 minutes of here you will go indulge yourself here. The bar setup was exactly how I would want it and everything about this place says quality. It made me think of places I had worked previously and brought a sense of familiarity to my journey. Boston, MA. Though I did not pull a shift here they all put me to work. Madeline Licopoli thank you for showing me around. Drink will be a blurry memory but as the cobwebs clear these people are at the top of the game and this will be a favorite spot among many this trip. 2 badasses Ezra Star and Sebastian Cañas made sure it will not be forgotten and I look forward to my time back in Boston after the journey is over. Trade has something (someone) magical behind the bar in Tenzin Conechok Samdo that makes AK-47 garnishes look like they are an everyday garnish for the average bartender. Trina's Starlite Lounge catching up with Steve Schnelwar reminded me of a couple favorite spots of mine in NYC and Philly as a combination. Glad I got to spend time here with good friends. I had to stop to see Tavern Road as one of the influential people in many of my friends lives was there at one point and is no longer. I didn't know him but being there felt special for that reason, you could see the influence and the impact it took on those that did and still do work there. I am happy to have gone there on both my nights in Boston and thoroughly enjoyed my time. Last and certainly not least I ventured beyond the city limits to Woburn and sat at Sichuan Garden II at The Baldwin. So much to say about this as I couldn't have been happier to sit with Vannaluck Hongthong and catch up. I miss this guy already knowing it will be a few months before I return but he was the first place in Boston to throw me behind the bar and make a cocktail. Looking forward to sharing another drink with you my friend. What a beautifully crafted place this is and even though I didn't get to see Ran Duan you can see the influence from top to bottom. This is an amazing spot that is not to be missed on your visits to Boston. Patrick Andrew Orlovsky and Mick Kellogg were great to get to know and really helpful in helping me find spots in other states. Food is equal to the cocktails and given the cocktails I would say that is pretty high praise. Boston you were so much fun on this journey and I am sorry it took me so long to get back here. Portland, ME was so much fun. The hospitality here is amazing and welcoming. Steve Corman at Vena's Fizz House was so nice upon my arrival and threw me immediately behind the bar. This little place and the history that goes with it and their story is so great that you should talk to him and his wife about it. Definitely make this a stop in Portland when you are there. LFK is a cool little spot that reminded me of Philadelphia but has an awesome little secret. Go check this out to see what I am talking about. Central Provisions was awesome. Great cocktails and food, nice atmosphere, chill bar, good people all around and seems to be an industry spot on Sunday and Monday. Bao Bao Dumpling House was where the shift took place and it was killer. Normally closed on Monday but with a Central Provisions takeover in the house the CP chef had his own menu and Patrick McDonald came up with the cocktails for Sonya Rook McDonald, himself and me to bang them out (blended pina coladas all day). So much fun to work here with these 2 as this was the most different of the bars so far that I was mostly unfamiliar with as it was a sake style Szcechuan spot. I like to be challenged so seeing new things intrigued me. So much fun here. Portland was great from start to finish and of course I had a lobster roll at Eventide Oyster Co. before I left to cap that part of the journey. Winooski, VT. Getting here was more than half the battle as a late April snow storm pretty much kept me from almost even attempting it. Though at the end of the day the sun came through and I knew everything would be alright. So happy that I got to make it up here. Matt Farkas was so gracious upon my arrival and let me get right behind the bar Mule Bar. Never really worked behind a full on craft beer spot before so again a new venue to explore. This place was great though. You could see the passion in what they do and the food was so good. Don't sleep on this place as if you are a beer fan there is no better bar to sit at anywhere I promise you. They took me around town to shown me the other places like The Monkey House, Waterworks Food + Drink and Misery Loves Co. which all had something different to offer. I wish I had a bit more time here to spend and will in the fututre. Manchester, NH was such a surprise in so many ways. Beautiful ride down and a place that is so well hidden it is amazing that people know it's there. The only way to find 815 is to like the page on Facebook and gain the password to this second floor speakeasy. Similar in fashion to PDT in New York but so different. I was so pleasantly surprised by this place and how passionate the people are about it. A false wall opens you into a beautiful bar and tall chalkboards with the beer menu listed. The big cozy furniture makes you want to sit for hours and they carefully craft the cocktails around classics to keep things familiar with their own cocktails as well. The owners Sarah Maillet and Ryan McCabe were gracious hosts and promoted the hell out of me being there. So much dedication goes into owning a bar and it was great to meet these two on this journey. The employees there are so much fun and working behind the stick with Andrew Johnson was a pleasure. I look forward to being back in Manchester for no other reason than seeing this little family again. So much fun was had on a Wednesday night and it gives me hope and inspiration for the rest of the journey because who would have known something this spectacularly well hidden in New Hampshire could be so amazing and still well known. This rounded out my journey of the first 6 states but I made one more appearance with Adam Patrick K for a night The Loft Martini Lounge in Norwalk, CT. A vintage martini bar that is now more of a night club in transition. I had a blast here with everyone that night. Vodka sodas and long island ice teas as it brought me back to Saturday nights at the hotel after a wedding let out. Let's you really get back to the basic pour and move to the next but still so much fun with DJ CHANCE spinning and everyone dancing. Great end to the first part of the journey. All in all I know this is long winded and there are so many people to thank. So far this journey has been amazing and inspiring. I am inspired by all of those surrounding me that are looking forward to me completing this that there is now no room for failure. Some of this was set up last minute and some journeys I didn't think I would make it too but I am glad I am doing this and hopefully this can be as educational for everyone else as it will undoubtedly be for me. This part of the journey is over but next stop is NYC for the USBG Northeast Regional Conference 2016 and a night at VON with Bluecoat American Dry Gin followed by a return to Rhode Island for the New England Tequila & Rum Festival. After that the journey continues on May 16th so hopefully I have all the kinks worked out so I can update this more appropriately. Cheers and thank you
