My Caterer I hired said they have a bartender-I think I’ll use them I use them instead?

Ok, go ahead..  BUT WAIT…
Just as one would hire a professional Chef to cook their food, and a DJ specifically for the music…. you should always hire a Professional Bartender to mix & serve drinks.  A Professional Bartender has the training, expertise and knows tricks of the trade to properly serve guests.  Why let a caterer have a  “fill’in” who doesn’t know the in’s and out’s of drinks as well as guests having  a great time at the bar?  Really, anyone can pour drinks, but i’m sure you want them served as good as your food.

Leaving the Cooking to the caterer.  Bartending is always side business for caterers and they hardly ever place any attention or their bartending services.  Hire a Professional Bartender for your and have your guests enjoy themselves by not playing the ‘guessing game’ of what to drink at the bar.  Most important, we’re insured to serve your liquor, known as ‘Host Liquor Liability Insured”.
