All My Friends Are Bartenders

You know the segment on Sesame Street, "These are the people in my neighborhood?"  Well, these are the people in my neighborhood, the bartenders. It became very apparent that after moving back to Long Beach from Portland, that all my friends were either becoming bartenders or the new friends I was making were bartenders. To you they are your enabler, to me they are my friends that I like to visit when they are working. You may get up to the bar before I do, but I can get a drink faster that you.  

Say hello to Dustin.

We've been friends for 10 years now. When I met him, he had rectangle wire glasses, was clean shaved and wore baggy jeans. Now he has plastic glasses, has a beard and wears fitted jeans and is a dj.  All growns up!  He's a great friend and an awesome bartender. Next time you find yourself at the Pike in Long Beach, make sure you say hello to Dustin aka D-Train, aka Desirable D formally known as Dust Digg.
