Hello, It’s Crystal Pelling, just staying in touch. My first Friday was tonight and it went great it was all by myself and it’s my third day i was alone on my 2nd made 170 dollars and got too job offers, one to be on tv, and another one at another bar. i plan on staying at the bar i am at for a month maybe a little bit longer then plan on going to a more Pittsburgh type bar i was offered a job at the blvd lounge which i have visited a couple of times. Just again want to say thank you for everything you all taught me and will have pictures for you i hope soon

Hello, Its Crystal Pelling, My first day was wonderful made 73 dollars in tips and 35 for my pay so 109 all in one night. I had a blast we were super busy and I would love for you all to come I am not sure of my schedule yet but will let you know when I know still working on my two week notice at my other job, my last day there is the 15th. Everything at this bar is pre-measured they don’t have grapefruit juice or cream so some drinks they don’t make and they never mix anything , so to practice I still count everything and study all drinks. Hopefully the other job if I get one will have me mixing and pouring shots the right way. Well that was my first day and I did way better than I thought. The girl that trained me said I did fantastic for never have worked at a bar. So I want to thank you all again like I do every time for all that you do. I will send you a picture of me behind the bar soon. Thanks, Crystal Pelling
