I don’t drink anymore

I don’t drink anymore.

I just support bartenders.

I’ve decided this is the way to categorize my drinking. . . as support for bartenders.

Now I’m not one to blow my own horn but a few years back I REALLY supported bartenders.

I actually dated one.

So I know exactly how alluring it is to support bartenders by drinking the new concoctions and potions they create while they master their trade.

Never did I ever pass up a drink.

Today, I got a text from a friend.

It said:  The bar over here is having a soft opening tonight until 9.  Might check it out. Support the bartenders.

And that REALLY got me thinking.

Maybe that’s how I’ll categorize all future drinking adventures.

As bartender support.

Do you suppose I could write it off on my taxes?

Charitable Donations?

Check.

Business Expenses?

Check.

Bartender Support?
