Who serves your drinks: Stars of the VR part III

Nora Hertel

For those who have been following this series of profiles, you now have some knowledge, both general and obscure, of your VR bartenders. Some may fill the stereotype of the wise bartender, or they may make your drink just the way you like it. Employing students to bartend is an example of the intimacy of the Lawrence campus. Everyone knows almost everyone else either directly or through association. The small campus and other elements like Thefacebook.com keep LU students close. Facebook does not, however, have a category for favorite drink or best advice. Enjoy the last of the profiles. Now you know just a little bit more about your peers.Name: Loni Philbrick-Linzmeyer

Funniest anecdote/joke you like to tell:
“A completely inebriated man was stumbling down the street with one foot on the curb and one foot in the gutter. A cop pulled up and said, ‘I’ve got to take you in, pal. You’re obviously drunk.’
Our wasted friend asked, ‘Officer, are ya absolutely sure I’m drunk?’
‘Yeah, buddy, I’m sure,’ said the cop. ‘Let’s go.’
Breathing a sigh of relief, the guy said, ‘Thank goodness, I thought I was crippled.'”
Sage advice from behind the bar: “I’ve never been behind the bar yet, but if I was to be behind the bar I would say ‘Keep it real, leave big tips’.”
