Most people don't realize it, but bartenders have a pretty tough job. Just like chefs, they have to learn to work with different flavor combinations. And just like waitstaff they have to deal with annoying customers.

On top of all that, they have to play comedian, counselor, friend, and, well, bartender. Quite frankly, we think that deserves a round of applause.

Mark Parisini falls into all of those categories. When the III Forks tender of bar is not mixing up creative cocktails, he's trying to rally a good time.

So, we decided to have a chat with the comical bartender about his favorite drinks, favorite people, and favorite pick-up lines.
