Punching the Clock: Belly up to the bar


Having worked here as a staff writer at The Evening Sun for three years now, itís hard to believe some of the other positions Iíve held over the years, from my time with dad kicking carpet as an employee of Simplicity Carpet to my first job at the Norwich Burger King (almost 20 years ago now), making pizzas (and subs ... and calzones) while living in Vermont, and even the occasional stint as a full-time musician (a nearly impossible task in this area). Yet of all the jobs Iíve held, my favorites would have to be the years I spent bartending at the one-time Music Shop Pub (now the Blarney Stone Pub, of course) and the Owego Jailhouse (where I also learned my way around a restaurant kitchen).
