25 things you never knew about Chad Michael George, bartender at Williams & Graham
As Westword's Ask the Bartender columnist, I've talked with many bartenders for Cafe Society's "Behind the Bar" series, posing numerous questions to Denver's top bartenders...and often receiving the same answers: "I love chartreuse," or "I'm really into smoked cocktails/barrel aging/bottled cocktails."
Some time ago, a Facebook friend posted 25 things about himself that most people weren't aware of -- and then he tagged me in the post, at which point I was supposed to do the same: rattle off 25 little-known facts about myself and ask someone else to follow suit. Instead, I'm asking Denver's bartenders to get up and close with Westword readers and share 25 lesser known tidbits about themselves -- and then name the next bartender that I should interview.
Linger's Kade Gianetti, the bartender I chatted with last week, encouraged me to interview Chad Michael George, one of the bartenders at Williams & Graham, the same bar where I work. George moved to Denver about a year and a half ago, but before his arrival, several of my friends from around the country called or e-mailed me to testify to his talents and character. I was immediately suspect (kidding...sort of), but once we met in person, it was apparent why everyone was singing his praises. George is an incredibly talented bartender who cares deeply about the craft, and he's very active in the bartending community.
In this week's edition of "25 things you never knew," George admits that he loves box wine, loathes mashed potatoes and Fernet, and has nightmares about cubicles.
