Cheers across America
I like bars. I like bartenders. But now I am too laid up to hang out, so this is a fond memory.
Debra Auerbach, CareerBuilder, writes that there are 580,000 bartenders in the US. That is under two bartenders per 1000 people. So tip, people!
But--of course--in some cities it's easier to get a drink than in others. The best places--New Orleans and Las Vegas, naturally. There are five innkeepers per 1000 in LV, 3+ in NO.
Next--Buffalo with 3 bartenders per 1000 people. Cleveland--same--three.
Milwaukee has almost three.
But then look at poor Key West--with 75K people, only 13 bartenders.
Spearfish, SD, 8 bartenders for 23K people.
Oh, this is too sad...I can't go on.
We need more bartenders!
