The author

Mike Q, Halloween 2010 at Johnny D’s (still bartending after all these years)

I’ve spent thirty years in crowded nightspots, as a bartender, bar manager and general manager.  I taught at The New England School of Bartending and was a contributing editor at Restaurant Hospitality magazine, writing a feature column.  One of my favorite pastimes is literature, and I’ve had two academic papers published on the philosophical connection between Jack London and Friedrich Nietzsche.

A recent return to strictly bartending (and writing a book) makes me wonder why anyone would willingly give up the bar life.
