Meet the Mayor: The Avenue

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

The Avenue
Liz O'Brien

While bartending here, how often do customers ask about your tattoos?
Pretty much every day. I get a lot of "Is that you?" or "Is that your dead grandmother?"

What the fuck kind of person would get a picture of their dead grandmother tattooed on their arm?
I know. But I'm like "No, it's Anne Boleyn."  And they're like, "Oh, didn't she get her head chopped off?"

Most memorable interactions with customers?
Um, let's see, the best is how everybody comes in and has a different story.  Behind the bar, we're just psychologists with a different inventory of drugs to hand people to help them with their issues. The greatest thing I've ever seen was these two guys came in, and one of them had just discovered that his girlfriend was cheating with the other guy. So he found this guy's number, called him, and they confronted her together at the bar. So she came in to meet one of them, and the other one was sitting there as well. They made her sit between them while they let her have it for a good hour. I just kept the Jameson flowing, and that's how that went.
