Bartender, Lavo Hometown: Pittsburgh.
First Vegas nightlife job: Lavo.
Favorite part of the job: I love meeting new people, making drinks and the fast pace. [I get to work in a] high-energy environment while listening to my favorite music.
Worst part of the job: Going to bed when the sun comes up!
Best tip? $500 [from] a customer because he liked my eyes.
One thing most people don’t know about Lavo is: That we are open six days a week (every day except Monday) and consistently throw a great party every night we are open.
Most people don’t know that: I lettered four years in high school basketball and track.
If she wasn’t a bartender, she’d be: Using my business degree towards a career in finance.
Favorite drink/shot to drink: Snake bite with Yukon Jack.
Most annoying drink to make: Jamaican 10-speed! (A labor-intensive mix of Midori melon liqueur, vodka, coconut rum and half-and-half cream.)
Best pick-up line she’s heard: While listening to Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody,” he said, “Hey, baby, I could use you!”
