You see younger bartenders doing this a lot. I even did it my first week or so, until someone told me to know it off. It was too hard to describe, so I had to take a picture.
Yeah. The filthy-bar-rag-in-the-back-pocket thing. It’s so gross it makes me want to puke all over the place when I think about that thing. Twirling around, spraying bar mess all over the bottles, rubbing up against the glassware, and drizzling down the backside of that bartender’s leg.
Soooo gross. I might get a lot of hate mail from The-Filthy-Bar-Rag-in-the-Back-Pocket-Bartenders-Association, but if I save just one person from this horrible habit, it’s worth it.
