Publisher's Summary

My name is Anthony Vano, and I recently retired as a bartender. Tip the Bartender is a collection of anecdotes, stories, and conversations collected during my 20 years of slinging drinks from behind a bar.

My favorite part of bartending is that it offers countless opportunities for amazing conversations with guests and fellow bartenders alike. Everybody has a story to tell or a confession to make. An exciting achievement. A haunting regret. A record to set straight. A powerful "aha" moment or lesson learned - wisdom that simply must be shared.

Some of the most real, vulnerable, and life-changing conversations I've participated in or witnessed have taken place while I was behind the bar.

There's something special about the guest-bartender relationship - it's perhaps akin to "doctor-patient confidentially" or "attorney-client privilege". Night after night, guests from all walks of life inevitably bare their souls, confiding their deepest secrets and innermost feelings to the man or woman serving drinks behind the bar.

I'm honored to have had so many confide in me over the years and allow me to speak into their lives. My years as a bartender were truly unforgettable.

Here's a tip:

As you approach this audiobook, think of yourself as the bartender and me as your guest. I've just slipped onto the bar stool and ordered my first drink. And now I'm about to open my heart and share with you some of my favorite memories. Relax and enjoy; the next few rounds are on me.

Cheers!

I appricated this book

It's nice little dive into the world of what I assume is a pretty in famous NYC bartender. The way the story is told feels real to me and really put me in the shoes of the writer navigating his way through this world. Reminds me a lot of conversations and stories I've heard and shared with fellow in the biz. Felt like comfort food.

Bartender stories

This is a pretty good listen, with some stories more entertaining than others. The final tale was by far the best for me with the older man sharing his advice. Some of the stories were really kind of bragging, and some I didn't really see the entertainment in, but overall a decent way to spend an hours and a half. Good narration. It was varied and held my interest. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher, and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.
