Hello again! Are you going stir crazy yet? With shelter in place orders being extended across the country and around the world, it’s hard to say when we’ll be out of this. The uncertainty of this crisis is what makes it so difficult to deal with. If we knew the end date, it would be much easier to plan for. Staying positive and creative in quarantine in whatever way works best for you is very important. With so many of us out of work and stuck at home, I wanted to chat with another bartender and hear about there experience. Even though many of us are physically alone, we are all in this together.
My guest today is Phillip Kim. He is a bartender here in San Francisco at 15 Romolo, and he’s also worked for The Keystone. Phillip has always been one of the most positive people I’ve known in the industry. It’s always lovely to go visit him when he’s behind the bar and see the creative projects he’s getting into at work, so it was no surprise to hear that he is staying positive and creative at home too. He is also spending some time thinking ahead about what the industry will be like when our bars reopen.
If you would like to help Phillip and his colleagues at 15 Romolo, you can donate to their Go Fund Me campaign. You can also get 15 Romolo cocktails to go right now if you are in the Bay Area. Every little bit helps.
