Whenever I am out and about with any friend of mine who is a bartender, it is expected to be asked that inevitable question: “Hey, wanna do a shot?” Inevitably the answer to that question is always of the “uh… f@ck yeah!” variety, but the expectation of ever being suggested to down a shot other than Jameson is always out of the question. Why is it that all bartenders are Jameson shot takers and pushers? It’s not that I am not a fan of the Irish whiskey, but moreso that it never ceases to amaze me that bartenders + Jameson go together like Lindsay Lohan and court hearings.
With that said, the annual Jameson Bartenders Ball took place at The Castle on Monday, February 11, 2013. It was my second time attending ever the event which changes location every year, and I had a helluva time being as drunk as a Jamesonofabitch. Bonus points for real drunken food such as brisket sliders and macaroni & cheese being available at the Jameson buffet.
Cheers to next year’s Ball!
