Why Bartender’s Weekend?

January 13, 2014 § 3 Comments

Why Bartender’s Weekend?  First let me start out by saying what Bartender’s Weekend is exactly.  Bartender’s Weekend is an excuse for amazing people in the bartender community to get together and bond without the pitfalls of non-stop networking and relentless obligations.

It is a few days set aside where we can enjoy the sunshine, talk shop & eat some incredible fish tacos.

Because of this philosophy, there are no seminars, no educational tastings and also no sponsorship fees.  Bartender’s Weekend is strictly egalitarian and exists only for the people’s enjoyment.

In fact, we don’t even really have anyone in charge, as there is no hierarchy or anyone with official or unofficial titles.

It is just a bunch of bartenders having fun and asking you to do the same.

So, if you want to organize your own event or party then please go ahead and do so, because we strongly encourage it.  Naturally, we ask that you check the calendar first, but this is only because it is the cool thing to do, not because anyone will say no.

We want everyone in the community to be able to come out and enjoy themselves regardless of what brand or bar they work (or don’t) for.

With all that said, we hope that you will join us this March 2nd – 4th here for the Second Annual Bartender’s Weekend here in beautiful San Diego.  Much love & respect.

    That sounds great – even if I think I will not make it from Hamburg this time ;)

    The Bartenders World has become super branded in the last years – nothing wrong with that. But I think it is even more important that we take care to come together, have an exchange, without sponosrs and industry..

    I started to set up the LIQUID LUNCH in Hamburg. Its Bartenders only. We meet once a month for a nice late Lunch. Two hours of conversation, wine and stories.

    We move on to a bar for a few Gin & Tonics and have always one guy in our middle from another city, country etc who gives us 60-90 minutes insides of his bar, life and career…

    We end up in the early evening, so you even can make it to work, or enjoy your very few free evenings (or go on socializing and drinking…)

    I think it is very important, that bartenders start to create this come together also without sponosrs and industry…

    A weekend sounds like a killer … but we stsrted with a Lunch

    Regards
