If you needed a Long Island Iced Tea, a Zombie, a Woo-Woo, you name it I made it. Many of my friends were shocked and didn’t believe me, but I tended a bar for four months (Thursday – Sunday nights) at The Mirage nightclub in Southeast Washington, D.C. Yes, THE Mirage. Yes, in “Soufeas” in the mid-90s. It was an adventure. I met a cast of characters, I had my regulars and I made some great tips. I was still working my noon to 8pm shift at the TV station Monday through Fridays. When I would take my tips over to the bank across the street from the station, located in a more affluent area of Northwest Washington, D.C., there were times the teller would give me the side-eye. Not that it was any of their business but I assured them all of those singles were from mixing drinks. Good grief!
