“I had never even heard of the Westerwood before I worked here,” admits this week’s Page Three model, Kathleen Leary — odd, because she graduated from nearby UNCG in 2009 with a double major in communications and dance. Before landing at the ’Wood, Kathleen worked at Greene Street Club and Nate’s Place, but now she’s content to serve the neighborhood crowd on the Thursday and Saturday day shifts, and Sunday and Monday nights. Originally from West Chester, Penn, outside Philadelphia, Leary says the physic’­al work of bartending has taken the place of her dance discipline. “It’s a different deal when you have to pay for those dance classes yourself,” she says.
