Tini Big’s bar manager Mike McSorley—you may also have sipped his drinks at Naga Lounge or Tavern Law—is skipping town next week for India.
The barman’s new gig is beverage ambassador at Taj Lands End hotel, a luxury hotel in Mumbai.
McSorley is not the first local bartender to be recruited to faraway places. While bartenders like Keith Waldbauer and Andrew Bohrer are based here in Seattle, they do cocktail consulting work with Kathy Casey at hotels all over the world. Remember this next time you order a tasty cocktail: People around the globe pony up big bucks so that their drinks taste as good as ours.
McSorley worked his last Tini B’s shift on Friday, October 7.
