At 8:00 pm, Tuesday August 13th, the documentary "Hey Bartender" will make its Boston premiere at the Brattle theater in Harvard Square. Directed by Douglas Tirola, the film focuses on two bartenders trying to achieve their dreams from different backgrounds; one an injured marine, the other a white collar worker making a career change. Numerous influential brand ambassadors, bartenders and restauranteurs are featured from Danny Meyer to Dale Degroff and even some of Boston's own. This is a glimpse of a unique world and should appeal not only to industry workers, but also anyone interested in modern cocktail and bar culture.
After the screening the director will sit on a panel moderated by Patrick Maguire, with local bartenders Jackson Cannon, John Gertsen, Misty Kalkofen and yours truly. Tickets can be purchased here.
