We have certain criteria for bartenders that don't necessarily extend across the board in the service sector.

Obviously, they need to be able to shake up a nice drink, but we kind of like some entertainment as well.

What can we say? We're jaded.

Clean Plate Charlie: Where are you from?
Hildebrandt: Lake Worth, Florida. I went to Lake Worth High School.

How long have you been in the industry?
I've been in the industry for ten years.

I knew I wanted to be a bartender when flaring at Starbucks became frowned upon.

Favorite drink to make?
Naked Lady: a combination of white rum, sweet vermouth, apricot brandy, grenadine, and lemon juice.
