The Bar's a Stage
Welcome Back Faithful Listeners!
To most out there, our guest this week needs no introduction. To everyone else, allow me to introduce the one and only Kimberly Patton-Bragg. Kim has been a fixture of the New Orleans cocktail scene for years. She was the first President of the USBG Chapter here in NOLA and has run several prominent bar programs throughout the city.
KPB (as us cool kids like to call her) is a naturally hospitable person. It's no wonder that she chose to pursue her passion for bartending over a career in stand up comedy and acting. It's clear, though, that her training for the stage makes her a unique and unforgetable barkeep.
Besides her accolades, one of the things that I love most about Kim is her desire to mentor and teach others. She has trained a multitude of folks the craft of bartending. Many of us (yes, I too am included here) have taken the knowledge that she imparted to develop our own unique careers.
She cusses like a sailor, loves to drink bourbon, is pretty handy with a rapier, and is one truly special individual. We had a blast getting the chance to get to know her better in this episode, and hope y'all enjoy!
