25 things you never knew about Kade Gianetti, bartender at Linger
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.
Last week, when I chatted with Melissa Durant, one of the amazing bartenders at Acorn, she prodded me to interview Kade Gianetti, a bartender at Linger. I love Linger for a lot of reasons, including the fact that it has the best rooftop deck in Denver, not to mention great food and drinks. And the bar staff, led by Mike Henderson, is top notch -- and Kade Gianetti, a key member of that group, is a well-rounded barman who's a lot of fun to watch.
In our third installment of "25 things you never knew," we learn that Gianetti is brewing coffee in kegs, dabbled in clog dancing, and has a knack for breaking bones.
