Stories from the service industry

 

Come with us as we shed light on what goes on behind the counter of your local watering holes. We want to give you the perspective of your bartenders, bouncers, chefs, servers, and more! There is a love/hate relationship that goes on in the service industry, and we want to talk about both sides of the bar. With each guest and episode we want to share the unique perspective that each person has and of course the exciting tales that come with being a part of the service industry. We created this podcast to help shed light, learn, grow and understand each other through the power of story telling conversations and great cocktails. Please join us, make a cocktail and enjoy all the tales that Life From The Well has to offer!
