Customers have asked to split a check with five credit cards and ordered Pisco Sours as their last call drinks. You still have to stock beer, break down all syrups and juices, clean the dish machine, sort all recyclables, count your bank and wipe all the liquor bottles. When your done, you've been standing on your feet for at least ten hours. The solace: a unique pleasure in sitting in an empty bar, after hours. Time for a shift drink.
