Bartender of the week- Sabrina Williams
Name: Sabrina Williams
Bar: The Social on Friendly
Where are you from? Sophia, N.C. (near Randleman)
How long have you been bartending? 4 years.
How did you become a bartender? I was a floor manager at a bar in Charlotte, N.C., and when we were slammed, I had to step in and help them out. It was a great way to learn but really hectic at the moment!
What do you enjoy about bartending? I love the people that I’ve met being on the other side of the bar, both customers and coworkers. It’s awesome to get exposure to so many different kinds of people.
What’s your favorite drink to make? A dirty martini.
What’s your favorite drink to drink? A mojito (light on the simple syrup)
What would you recommend as an after-dinner drink? Hot coffee. Best way to enjoy an after-dinner conversation.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen while bartending? Had a guy on acid in our front lawn at the music factory in Charlotte who the firefighters had to use these grip gloves to get up because he was so sweaty. He had fallen asleep in his boxers after this music festival! The best part was the firefighters weren’t even phased.
What’s the best/biggest tip you’ve ever gotten? Had a guest who had two front row tickets to a Dirty Heads concert and couldn’t use them. So he just gave them to me! I walked next door to the amphitheater and had an awesome night — best tip ever.
