Because I'm cooking a lot of the time, I've always found bartending to be so cool because of concocting mixed drinks while socializing with people. A friend of mine who finished bartending school and has just went to a few refresher courses recommended I try it because of good pay and it's something that's different from the desk jobs I've had in the past. I only know so much about the job, since I don't drink (seriously, I don't). I know that bartending school will be somewhere around $600 to take, and one of the downsides I know will be the second-hand smoke I'd have to put up with where I'd work. I was wondering if there were any HTF'ers here with any bartending experience or any helpful insight that would help me with my decision. Cool experiences and anecdotes would be nice too, thanks!
