Tessa Wade
Baggataway Tavern

Tessa Wade has been a bartender at Baggataway Tavern for three-and-a-half years. Her favorite drink is Rose All Day and loves the human interaction that comes with the job. One thing to note about Wade, she plays the same song at the start of every shirt. The song, Todd Terje’s “Inspector Norse,” was recommended to her by someone sitting at the bar.

Mike McKenna

Mike McKenna has been behind the bar at Pepperincini’s for 14 years. His favorite drink is a cold beer with a shot of Crown Royal. When not serving up drinks, he enjoys meeting representatives from the beer, wine, and liquor industry. His strangest experience bartending was the night the Phillies won the World Series. McKenna shared, “That night got really strange!”

Dave Debee
Guppy’s Good Times

Dave Debee has been bartending at Guppy’s Good Times for a year and has been a bartender for seven years. Debee won “Best of Conshy” last year while working at another establishment.

Debee’s favorite drink is Rumpleminze and the drink he enjoys making the most is a Manhattan. He enjoys bartending because someone always has a great story to tell.

His strangest experience bartending was when a Vice President of Taco Bell gave him a backrub when he was working at a bar in Orlando.
