Meet Bartender Stevhe Best of Columbus Grill!!
BTB: How long have you been bartending?
Stevhe: I've been bartending for a little over 5 years now!
BTB: What is the best part of working at Columbus Grill?
Stevhe: Columbus Grill is one of the classiest places I have worked in a very long time, and oddly it's located in Manassas. Every dish that is ordered is made from scratch so you know you are getting the best quality. The prices are so inexpensive that they will blow you away too. My boss lets me be who I am when it comes to bartending, and I really admire that. I can be a handful!
BTB: What is your favorite drink to make?
Stevhe: I know it sounds strange, but I really enjoy making martini's that consist of different types of alcohol! My favorite is a vodka martini, with a splash of cranberry, topped with a sweet white wine like Moscato. Garnish it with a strawberry and viola!
BTB: When you aren't working what's your favorite bar to go to?
Stevhe: This is a funny question, because as much as I enjoy getting dolled up and going out, I usually end up at my local watering hole where most likely everyone is wearing jeans and a t-shirt while watching the game. I'm more comfortable eating wings and drinking beer anyday of the week.
BTB: Any advice for anyone thinking of or wanting to become a bartender?
Stevhe: My advice would be that don't stress about remembering all of the drinks at once! You will get to know them as time goes on and you have actual hands on training. Reading a book does not give you a real visualization of what bartending really is...a blast!
If you find yourself in the Manassas area. Stop by and say "Hello".
