7 December – Bartender Appreciation Day
Most occupations have a day dedicated to them and the job of tending a bar is no exception. Bartender Appreciation Day aims to make customers think about the great service their favourite bartenders give while pouring pints and mixing cocktails as well as their great people skills of talking, listening, joking and being a shoulder to cry on and a person to confide in.
Over the centuries, a bartender’s job has somehow evolved from just pouring your pint or shot into being a therapist of sorts, to the point that these days, that’s what bartenders are best known for: being the person you can tell all about your life’s troubles while sipping an ice-cold beer.
Who could think of a better kind of therapy?
