Bar­tender: Watch out for in-laws

The Times-Tribune - - BRIEFLY -

Michael Size an­swered a few ques­tions about his job as bar­tender at the Savoy Restau­rant and Bar in Scran­ton. Size had been tend­ing bar at the Savoy since 1939.

Asked about his job, Size said, “In ad­di­tion to know­ing how to mix thou­sands of drinks, a good bar­tender has to be a lit­tle bit lawyer, doc­tor, min­is­ter, po­lice­man and mar­riage coun­selor.”

When it comes to lis­ten­ing to cus­tomers about their prob­lems, he said, “Peo­ple talk about all kinds of prob­lems, but the one prob­lem that far out­num­bers all the rest is in-law trou­ble.”

Ask what peo­ple like to drink at the Savoy, he said the most pop­u­lar drink served “is the good old shot and beer chaser — a boil­er­maker.”
